I was up on Edninburg Gap Rd and stopped in to look at the bulletin board at the OHV site - does anyone have any experience with these NF trails?

Would a basically all stock V be in the position to run them with a fairly experienced dirt rider - or would it be recommended that I install crash bars, bash plates and decent tires?

TIA,

ohv trails

I took my stock wee on the Patterson Mountain OHV trail. It did fine. There were some of the side trails that I didn't even attempt due to the lack of crash bars, skid plate, and more aggressive tires but all in all it did supprisingly good. Here are a few pics on this thread

I see you posted a while ago. If you haven't been to Edinburg, I recommend you not attempting it on a stock Strom...or any Strom. Edinburg is usually too rough on my motocross ATV. Very (very) rocky. Usually to harsh to enjoy even on my very hard core ATV. It would be miserable on a Strom.

GW Forest does have a trail known as Rattle Snake, I think it's Patterson Mtn. Much better trails. Usually crowded, but reasonable trails for the Strom.

I WOULD NOT recommend the Edinburg/Taskers Gap trails on your Strom! I ride them periodically on my YZ450F :D and some of them are a handful on it. Most of these trails are VERY ROCKY!! ;) I ride a DL1K too....and I would not consider taking it on these trails.

That said...the trail one of the guys mentioned (Patterson) which lies North of the sign you were at is the easiest ride up there. You can get through that on a strom, but again, I would not take mine even through that one. It enters on the North side of the pavement and goes about 9 miles north and comes out on a dirt NF road. The side trails are VERY rocky!

There is another trail system near Harrisonburg, Va. It is known as Rocky Run. Notice the word "Rocky" again? It is also very rough for a Strom. Wouldn't recommend it either.

The final trail system in our area is the South Pedlar one mentioned above. It is the best!!! :D:D We ride it often. It is much faster :p and has lots of smallish jumps on it. But,as he said, it is crowded and I would not ride the Strom there either. :(

So, you ask, where is one to ride the Strom? Rest assured my friend, there are countless dirt road miles to ride out there. The George Washington NF is slam full of good FS (Forest Service) roads to ride. Check out the Deerfield and Dry River Ranger Districts for more info! There are almost endless miles of VERY GOOD dirt roads to ride and camp on out there! "E" me sometime if you want more info.

Phewy, I'm tired of typing!
