I am getting the track for the windmills. Also trying to get the danger spot where 4 people have been coptered out in the last few months, a lady on an ATV died last Sat. It is a drop off at a waterfall after exiting a tunnel.
Sad we are losing A lot of trails because some people using them lack Respect for anything including the trails and community surrounding them. Here are some pics of a ride back in 2019 on the gauley rail trail with amber, carver and myself.
Great pics. Quite a shit storm has been stirred up. I have been in touch with Craig Page and Eric Larch who are the admins of the two FB groups, one of them may show us around. I hope they get the Trail Kitchen issue straightened out, looks like a great place to eat. When they close the Koontz tunnel next year will there be a way around it?
Trail Kitchen closing and trails closing - definitely shows issues in area. Way too many sxs riders now. For some reason many Americans think it’s their given right to do anything they want. Irritating since it’s screwing things up for everyone else.
Reminds me of my WV house - on the weekends it wasn’t unusual to hear SXS going by at midnight to 3am with stereos blasting and pipes blaring from no muffler. Those people would not accept that at their home.
Here is post from Eri Larch regarding Trail Kitchen meeting.
We attended The Trail Kitchen community hearing this evening. I’m pleased to say it went very well. Business owners and local residence had a lot of good conversation, a lot of resolutions were made. I think everyone is happy! All the issues were put to bed, as well as plans made to fix it. They will be reopening soon, to be announced. They’re making some changes, along with announcing some good programs to help their community. Will also be announced soon! Those that were guilty, of driving reckless or harassing locals. Simply stated, do BETTER. A lot of people worked hard to come to agreements this evening, and work towards a common goal. Keep open a growing business open as well as have an enjoyable environment for residence. Clean up some trash, slow down around houses, treat others like you want to be treated. We love riding this area, we love the trail kitchen. Let’s do our part and act like it. Thank you from everyone here at Mountain Made Offroad that attended this evening to help see another local business thrive.
