Question regarding trails 44y, 103y and 87y
« on: October 28, 2010, 08:28:23 AM »
We are coming up there first of November and we have ridden there the last three years. We always ride all the red trails and the ones that are red "Y" trails. My question is looks like 44y and 103y are new and 87y was getting worse last year. I would like to know how difficult these trails are and how bad 87y has gotten. We are making out our trail loop and don't want to get stuck somewhere. Thanks for the help.

44y and 103y are new.....103y is steep with some rocks at the top if you did 87y last year 103y will not be a problem. 44y is harder than 103y and when built you needed a winch to do it but its doable now by most. 87y i cant answer its been a while since i was on it, maybe someone else will chim in on that one ;)

Thanks JB800. All the guys I ride with are experienced riders one will be on a Honda 700xx and one will be on a new Ranger the rest will be on grizzlies, rincons or xp's. Do you thinks the guy on the ranger will have much trouble and when you mean you had to use a winch at first is there a ledge you have to go up? Because there is only one winch in the group. We went up 87Y last year and it was raining and it was more rutted than the year before. I appreciate your help.

West Tennessee around Jackson, TN. This will be our fourth time to Brimstone we feel its the best around. What about your group where are y'all from?

Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and Wisconsin..we also agree that Brimstone is the best TN trail system around.  Check out the Eastern section under ATVNation.com forums and we will probably see ya'll around the cabins and campgrounds

Ok 44Y you will need wheel speed it is steep and long and you have to work around trees it is not a straight shot up Just when you think your up you will turn left and go again But a little easier. They you will come to the end But hey thats the fun part 3 small climbs but you better have some wheel speed and do not baby it you will get hung but they are short shots and you have to turn also. So watch the end real well and do not crowd give each other time. You will love it and if it is wet hang on whole new adventure then Good Luck Guys and have fun and be safe

We didn't get a chance to ride 44y due to the logging however we did ride 87y and trust me its all you want. Its much harder than its been in the past. Its been clear cut and all your staring at is a straight up and down hill with zero margin for error. We all made it up fine but definitely a pucker factor. Trail 87 half way up has gotten really nasty as well there is a rock ledge that's forming with just a little room on the right to go around it but its getting really rutted. The first part of old trail 14 is tough as well it looks like no one ever goes on that trail we always give it a try. We rode all the reds this weekend and no one was hurt and only one minor roll over.
