Riding the Wild Cumberland

More pictures from the ride at Royal Blue, Coal Creek, Brimestone and Sunquist forest areas north of Oak Ridge, TN.

The accompanying story will be in the August issue of Adventure Motorcycle Magazine.

If you ride here, get your permits, don't go on a weekend or anytime it's wet. Personally, I'm not into 'muddin' . . . must be a 4-wheeler ATV thing. I think cycles tread more lightly, tearing up less ground, overall - much better for the environment than the larger ATVs.

The pictures:

#1 - through the fern forest at Royal Blue WMA

#2 - wild flowers along the lush trail in the Sundquist WMA

#3 - looking west in the Coal Creek area.

#4 - on the Cumberland Plateau after sunset looking down at Caryville, Cove Lake and Jacksboro.
