Hello TT'ers, A friend and I are trying to ride this weekend. It will be our first trip besides Tasker's Gap, Moto Cove and the local spot in Northern Va that we've been hitting for a couple months. We originally chose Buffalo Mtn at the Hatfield & McCoy system because it has the most singletrack of the 8 apparently, but after learning that Trailfest is this weekend we're not too keen on going there. We would like to; 1. Ride good quality singletrack. From what I have learned is that ATV's seem to rule out there, and we're not into mud bogging. I don't mind wider trails, but from what I've seen/read is A LOT of those trails are full of mud holes. 2. Slightly technical is okay. But if it's just rock gardens all day then we can save the cash and times and hit Tasker's like usual. We want to learn and improve our skills, hopefully do some harescrambles next year, but the continuous rocks are a little much. I would love to be able to hit some ruts all day long, that would be awesome. 3. Only drive 4-5 hours tops. That's why I chose Burning Rock and the Pocahantas areas. I would hate to drive 6+ hours to buffalo mtn then be swarmed by ATV's, vendors, events and crowds. We are looking to get maximum time on the bikes, and are also on a tight budget so camping is necessary. We have to leave the DC area Sat. morning and return Sunday night. Thanks for any suggestions otherwise, I'm open to other areas it's just that WVA seems to have the most info online. It would also be a bonus to be able to try out an MX track that's easy. We're on 125 smokers, btw. I saw that Burning Rock has a track, but you have to pay an additional fee on top of the trail permit.
