I just rode the evart trails for the first time yesterday. If your looking for a challenging trail I recommend them. The trails are real tight with alot of hills, rocks and roots. It was a 23 mile butt-kicking.

They used to be much tighter no thanks to the Quadtards :bang:

Actually, I seen two people with four wheelers trying to ride on the trails. They didn't make it 300', before they turned around. I couldn't imagine a four-wheeler getting through there.

Disappointed

I also rode Evart today, is sure has gotten wider in the last three years. It is not what it used to be. There are many more miles of wide open trail with tons more whoops. It used to be a slow 1st, 2nd gear trail now it's a fast 2nd, 3rd gear ride. The signs are posted "NO ATV's" maybe some people could use a refresher reading course. On a more positive note, the west side of the loop between the sand bowl and the cross trail connector is still a very fun ride.

You can't give quadtards a refresher course in reading when most don't know the alphabet. Haven't done the Evart thing, but my brother and I have had close calls with the quadaholic types. We were hustling pretty good on a "cycle only" trail, well my brother was hauling azz anyway, and we come around a corner in slide in throttle out mode only to be faced with a quad stuck between two trees. Thankfully for us, we both reacted very quickly and went out through the ferns and pine stumps avoiding a direct collision. My brother wanted to carry two quadtard heads back on his rear fender but I suggested we ask them if they understood why the trail had cycle only triangles up after our little foray into the stump laced ferns. I think they were aware of the error of their ways since they apologized and asked us if we knew which way the nearest two track was that crossed the trail. I don't hate quad types, I just wish they would think about their actions more often. Anyhow, pretty much any trail that the quads are given access to will be ruined. At least we can ride enduros for some quality trail! Sorry to ramble, just wanted to share a mixed traffic story. Good day..... :blah:

I know for a fact that Slowone rides a QUAD, in fact he runs down cycle riders. :yikes:

They have pretty much blasted the entire eastern side open all the way to the top. Thankfully the west side is still pretty tight. But Its probably just a mater of time till they bust thru that too :bang:

I have sneeking hunch that until we, the folks actually using our land, are able to read and understand our laws and then get an accord with Law Enforcement that what we understand as law IS in fact law - we are simply fighting a loosing cause and getting upset for nothing.. Woodsy

To use a phrase that the law enforcement community is fond of, "ignorance is no excuse for the law." This should apply to both parties, law enforcement and land users. Sorry Woodsy, had to edit after your edit in order to not disagree with a statement I agree with. :nod:

Come on fellas be nice. I got on that death quad not realizing the brakes were maintained by "midas", stood on the brake pedal and nothing. Yeah, quads are great beer holders and they do have some merit when hunting but you won't catch me on an "ORV" trail with one. You guys took it and ran with it. :cool: I guess I'm getting a taste of my own medicine. I'll never be able to live down the fact that I ran Marsh over with a quad though! :nener: Oh wait, it's not supposed to be funny.

Don, you called it man! The worst part is I'm a cheap bribe. They bought me a case of Falstaff Beer and promised a trip to Cross Roads in Kasky on amateur night. Feel kind of bad about not charging more. :nod:

Woodsy, heard a rumor of some mini-bikers riding on a walking/bicycle trail recently-You know the ones were no horses or MOTORIZED vehicles are allowed? This isn't a case of the kettle calling the pot black is it! :coocoo:
