Hardcore are ya???

How many of you guys like a challenge???

How many of you consider yourself to be hardcore wheelers?

If your interested in the harder rockcrawling lines, you need to come check out the new cut on Rattlerock at Windrock. We have been cutting a new trail adjacent to Rattlerock and will be opening it up soon and would like to have a group of guys that would like to try some challenging lines for the first day riding the new trail, to see what we can accomplish.

If your interested PM me and I will give you the details of when the trail will be open for riding and when the Grand opening will be. Hope to hear from you guys!

yeah come on down, Its a pretty tuff line. It will need to get rode some to get the rocks moved around. Thanks for the tip on Rail Trail, we got the tree cut and out of the way on Sat.

The lines are Rail trail tough but unlike Rail trail the lines are DRY!

Heres some pics of the line on Rattlerock,at the bottle neck you go straight.




This is tough but doable

I'm a huge fan of Windrock. I used to think it sucked but I have found a tri-fecta that will guarentee a good weekend. I think the area has a lot to offer.

a group of us from VA are coming down in the middle of may for a few days. most of us are "hardcore"........

We will definately be interested in trying the new lines.

We are also interested in any other trails that are fun/hardcore. We haven't been there in about 2 years, and it sounds like other things have changed.

Yes the price is $17 a day and worth it IMO.

Rattlerock is simply the best trail Ive ridden. its has everything from sick bonus lines and some of the best crawling in the south. Thiers lines that are open on Rattlerock that I have never seen anyone make it up and the new lines are even sicker!

The new trails location is not being release at this time because it isnt open yet and we dont want someone getting on it and ruining it for everyone. It will be open soon and its close to the parking lot.

I hope you are being sarcastic. $17 per person per day is a fair price. If you cant afford that. You picked the wrong hobby. everywhere we go is $50 per weekend or $20 per day plus a small fee for passengers.


My wheeling crew is booked monthly until July or August. I will discuss this with them on our next trip and see you late summer or early fall.

How about parking for 3-4 motorhomes in the 40ft range with trailers? all rigs are trail only. IIRC you cannot camp in the parking area anymore. As another option where is the closest Wal Mart. We can stay there overnight. As long as the it is not posted as no overnight parking.

Everyones complaning about the cost but $17 a day is not bad.

Just like ftoy507 said,most places charge $50 a weekend,would it sound better if they said $34 a weekend?
Hell an annual pas is just $88,thats almost what you pay for one weekend somewhere else and Harlans cost to ride will go up. a couple years ago it was free to ride at Harlan.

$17 a day is far from a problem.

I would honestly pay double that to wheel at a good park/property.

In comparison to the other places that do charge, its is cheap!

So stop your whining!!!!!

Its the Per person fee that constitutes the expensive part. Take a family up there and it gets expensive quick. Per rig fees make more sense but I'm ok with $17/person since its normally just me anyway. I'd say we will try to get a group to come up one weekend. Just down the road from us and looks fun. Its great you guys are working on that park. Looking forward to seeing it.

No I was bein serious.$51 aday for my crew is too much when I can go to Harlan and ride all I want on my $35 a year permit.Fuel/distance will be about the same for me goin to either place.It's not that I cant afford it.I just choose not to afford it when their are other options.

If your content riding the same areas,thats good.

Windrock is an awesome place to ride that has a lot of hard trails and we are trying to build more,so for all of you guys that want to try hard,challenging trails that will test your driving skills and dont care to pay the fee,come check out the new stuff weve cut,you wont be dissapointed.
