Does anyone have any experience on the Tennessee Dirt Devil Trail?
Agreed. We need to show the public that we are not all irresponsible. That is what clubs should be doing. It is important that clubs make efforts to make things better and let the community know what they are about.How about instead of stop going organize your club to work with landowners and go out to mark property lines.
Get with the business owners and when you go stop and eat lunch instead of bringing a snack.
Once it's marked the property owner can prosecute anyone who is destroying thief land no questions asked.
Your club and others can share in the responsibility of the area.
A win win for all
Notice no club replied to that, main reason I jeep independent.Agreed. We need to show the public that we are not all irresponsible. That is what clubs should be doing. It is important that clubs make efforts to make things better and let the community know what they are about.
I would like to ride today i cant get any of the links to open so i can find the store to get one of the maps! Can anyone tell me where to go??We did part of the trail yesterday after buying the map. It was the first time I'd driven a Jeep in "off road" conditions and it was an awesome drive, largely because it's barely "off road." We did the upper right-hand portion of the map and there were four of five little creek crossing that were very easy for a newbie to navigate. I can see why large groups would have upset the landowners, as the road goes right through or past many front yards and there are a lot of places that would be tempting to go spin through a gateless field. But, we drove past a few property owners and smiled and waved and they all waved back, so it seemed to be fine. Looking forward to checking out the rest of the map.
here's the map purchase info from the website...I would like to ride today i cant get any of the links to open so i can find the store to get one of the maps! Can anyone tell me where to go??
I drove several miles of it on 9/10 and again yesterday 9/13. It is a nice wooded country dirt and gravel road for the most part. There are many stream crossings. It hasn't rained in a week so there was not much water. The area with the most crossings and a cool waterfall is located at approximately 9547 S. Tatum creek rd. Lyles TN 37098. Coming from the south on Thompson lane, turn right onto S. Tatum rd. A google search should get you there. The road is semi-difficult to follow as it is the stream and many have made there own roads. I would recommend staying to what looks like a road and not the many trails which are obviously 4x4 trails and not county roads.I'd like to drive around the trail one day soon. I'm not going to buy a $20 map, I'll find my own way around. I only live a few miles away from leipers fork,TN.
