10239 n old state rd 135 Vallonia IN 47281. Thats just an address to old state rd 135. Its maybe a mile long buts its a miniature version of the dragons tail in Tennessee. There is lots of good riding in southern indiana. There is a guy just outside of Kurtz indiana who has around 170 acres that lets people ride on it. He has a small track, gnarly hillclimbs and some trails. Its called motosupreme. Look up the 2013 or 2011 hnf ride on advrider. Gpx files of the ride go from tell city IN to Martinsville IN. The southern routes have some really great back roads. 2013 Hoosier National Forest Ride Oct. 26-27 - ADVrider
another thread is on the regional forum of advrider. The indiana thread is basically the southern half of indiana where guys show picks of neat things down south and get together and ride. There is a huge culvert pipe that goes under 37 and 64 interchange thats pretty cool to ride through. its about 1/2 mile long. We rode through it on the 2011 hnf ride. Redbird SRA in Dugger IN is a really nice state owned park. I think its $10 per plated vehicle. Im going to try to get a few fellow tw'ers to all go down there sometime this summer when everything is dried up.

Thanks Small's that is excellent information. Me and my other bike (yikes Harley) will definately try the Hoosier Forest Route. My TW is not plated so long pavement riders are a no go.

I have taken the "big jeep" (heavily modified) to Haspin several times. When I was there there were quite a few big rigs running around. Be careful. Personally, and it is truly just a biased opinion, I like the Badlands in Attica better.

I was at Haspin in 2004 with a two drive Ford Ranger. I did not make it very far. We sat in camp the rest of the night unitl it got really wild once night fell. Once it was dark the crazies came out. Some guy raided a camp site and stole the steaks from a cooler, then ate them. I remember a truck that had the transmission go out so owner rolled it over, becuase they had no jack to get the tires off it, while they were any at camp getting a tire tool someone else lit it on fire. Shorty after this we left in the middle of the night/early morning, hit the road and head for home, too rough for us.

Rumor had it the place has cleaned up its act so I was thinking about giving it another try.

My son goes to Haspin with his Jeeps pretty regularly. He and his buddies are some of the crazy night riders, but not raiders. The worst they might do is lock you inside your trailer and take off (if they know you).

We are planning on going there with the ATV's and SxS's this summer some time.

The Hoosier National Forest is where I ride most. My place down there is just north of Eckerty (Hwy 64, 37 & 145) (Wickliffe). We can get from there down to Alton and Magnet on the backroads with the ATV's and do so regularly. The areas up and down along Governor's Trace (road name) is nice to ride. Plenty of side roads, some dead end (take a break) and some loops (Old Felker Rd is a cool ride).

Interlake is like Redbud, but in Linville, IN. It's an abandoned strip mine where they turned it over to the state. There wasn't a gate, so no charge my last trip. One day they'll have one. It's a blast, but don't go alone! Bring a buddy, or join a group. You need a plate or DNR registration. KY may be reciprocal, no idea.

Everytrail saved us our last trip to Interlake... I had a flat tire, and the other guys kept getting burried leading the chase to try to beat the dark. We wound up on an unfamiliar trail after dark, and luckily were able to find the spot we crossed the entrance on the way out. We almost made another 20 mile lap on the roughest loop we've found there. After dark, the trails sure look different!

I run it on my iPhone, and a buddy runs it on his Android. You can export from their web site for Google Earth or GPS.

I am seriously interest in riding in Hoosier national park. What does it take to be legal my TW does not have a plate? Are there trail maps other than your route Gene? I know some of the guys that own patoka lake but that is my only in. Where is a good place to park the truck, off load the bike?

Haspin was ruff back in the day and I dont know about now. If your not used to being around the redneck construction worker types then you might get offended easily. I prefer it over the badlands. Big rock by Maysville KY is a good place. Hoosier national is a no go if not plated they are all public roads
