Redbird question

My son and I are making a trip to KY next weekend weather permitting I am wanting to do a day at Redbird and a day at Stree/Turkeyfoot. I have heard there is a place to get gas on the Redbird crest trail if we start at the ranger station how far is it to the gas stop? I don't plan on riding the whole loop I have heard that the single track section can be kind of rough and the boy is only 10 on a XR100 he's an ok rider but I don't want to wear him out. If the gas stop is off the mnain trail what is the chance of getting ticketed? my bike is plated so no big deal for me more worried about him. Also can I get the trail permits at the ranger staion? I no I have alot of questions but I like to be prepared.

You can get the permit at the Ranger station. I am not sure about the gas station.

Go to S-Tree with your boy.

You and he will have more fun @ S-Tree.

Once he's advanced some, then consider Redbird . . .:thumbsup:

Well we did Redbird on Fri and Stree/Turkey foot on Sat. He did ok at Redbird just a little slower we did about 15 miles and turned around. I liked it and would like to go back and ride the whole loop. I wish I would have known there were so many turnouts off the main trail at times it was hard to find if we were going the right way until we found an orange diamond

      The Cahaba WMA is 27,000 acres located in central Alabama. It has always been off limits to ORV and motorcycle use. Recently the property was leased by the Forever Wild Land Trust. This program manages thousands of acres for wildlife management and recreational activaties. The Forever Wild Land Trust now has accumulated 205,372 acres for habitat protection and public recreation since the program began in 1992.
      These lands, which are all open to public use, can be used for hunting, wildlife watching, hiking, kayaking, canoeing and many other outdoors endeavors.
      How do we get ORV use added to the many uses of this property?

      SO i finally got into riding MX and just looking for some more riding buddies. Im an OK rider (getting better each trip) just looking for some more people to ride with (And maybe even help me with my riding). Usually end up in Terrell at The Pit, Athens MX, or Canton. Havent been to Swan yet since i dont have a membership, getting one soon though. I try to get out every weekend or thursday night, but cant always get someone to go so figure ill find some more people. Just drop me a PM or reply here if you dont mind another person to ride with around the big ET.

      We are heading to Dallas for Thanksgiving and plan to ride Lake Mackenzie tomorrow. Would love someone to show us around and we can return the favor if you want to ride Front Range Colorado. We are both pretty good riders but just want to ride and have fun. We will be there midday
