Where is coalmont? I have rode all over east tn except for brimstone. Rode the west and east side of royal blue.West side better my opinion. More technical trails and a lot more creek crossings. Love that place. Been to Windrock and Pickett state forest several times. Rode the trails south of Trails End campground for one day. All great places to ride. As far as middle tn goes, I got to ride at Monteagle a couple of years ago and loved it. Really rocky and technical. I live in West TN and all we have is Turkey Bay or Natchez Trace. Both are good places to ride but I've rode them so much I have them memorized. Get kind of bored riding the same stuff all the time. Always looking for new places and people to ride with.

Hey guys, I'm going to be coming down from Northern Illinois the first week of October to pick up a sportsman 570 from abernathys in union city TN. My girlfriend and I are looking for a cabin in the woods/mountains, hopefully with a pond on site and relatively close to atv trails. Any suggestions? I Google but there are SO many places I can't make heads or tails. My girlfriend is a beginning rider so simple trails would be best for safety.

If you can reccomendation a riding park and or a cabin rental I'm all ears! We are willing to go anywhere in the state but would prefer somewhere in the central part of the state.

Thanks!

I think most will agree the best trails in TN are in the eastern part. Windrock, Brimstone and Royal Blue are three that will offer great trail riding for all levels of expertise. As far as a lake or pond on site I know of none. I'm sure there is either motels, campgrounds or cabin rental at some of these places. Google them and see what they say. Sorry....the middle of the state doesn't have a lot to offer for trail riding

If you are going to Abernathy's to buy your quad.....google Turkey Bay at land between the lakes. That is about the only good trail system around that area....and I believe its in Kentucky, but very close to the TN-KY border, and is situated between Ky Lake and Lake Barkley, on a very large peninsula. Probably only a two hour or so drive from Union City Tn....maybe less. Good luck

Thanks for the info. I just reviewed a topographical map of the state and realize the elevation is primarily in the eastern part of the state.

Even though Turkey Bay has low elevation its a good ride with some good hills, some mud and probably some dust this time of year. A good friend of mine lives near there and really likes riding Turkey bay. And this way its not a 5 hour trip to east Tennessee to get to ride something good, plus the lakes are great. There are elk there and Bison and lots of deer. A lot to see at land between the lakes

Found this post after I'd IM'd Vandal. I'm from Lebanon TN. Got my ATV to use specifically for duck hunting in flooded rice fields in Arkansas but I find its so much fun that I can't stay off of it. I "aerated" my yard this past weekend with my new tires. . . lol!

I've been to the Covington Pike bottoms area in Memphis. It's not any type of official ATV trail or even sanctioned for riding, it's just one of those places folks go. It's in a high crime area, there are burned out cars, piles of trash, but if you want mud, that's the place. There are lot of mudders that go there and plenty of trails to keep you busy all day. You'll see lots of snorkeled ATVs there. If you go, someone there will tell give you tips and tell you about the trails. When a buddy and I went there for the first time, someone chased us down and warned us that we needed to improve the security of our trailer, so we chained it to the fence. If you go through mud holes, be sure you have a buddy to winch you out. There is a facebook group called "Covington Pike Mud Slingers" that posts some pics and tips for riding there.

I've also been to Natchez Trace State Park just off of I-40. It's got some fire roads and trails. Parking is tight, you can park your truck/trailer just off the road on the fire trails. Some trails were developed by riders off of marked trails. It's enough to keep you busy for half day. A good place for young riders. Also a good place to break in an ATV. There is a buried gas pipeline that goes through the park. ATVers have used that but it's posted not for trail rides. (that looks like the most fun of all though). There are trails on both sides of the interstate. Don't get caught on the pavement.

I've been wanting to try Turkey Bay Off-Highway Vehicle area. Also, I'd like to try Windrock sometime. Never been to either. Open for a Mid-Tn trail ride sometime.
