I've been to Rockhouse trails 6 or 7 times and want to hit another trail system, what's your thoughts where we can ride for a good two days and cabins are available on the trails so we don't have to trailer.

Indian Ridge Pocahontas Pinnacle will keep you busy for two days.
They all combine.
Many places to stay without trailering.
There’s been some disruption with the system because of Logging or Mining but they hoped to have alternative-trail around it by early spring.
Check with HMT website.
All good riding.

Pinnacle Creek. You can hit all of PC plus Indian Ridge and depending on when you come, the old Pocahontas or maybe the new Pocahontas.

But in any case, there are tons of outlaw trails off of PC including: The View, Goldfish Pond, Pineville Horses, 2 sets of large fans, Beer Can Alley, Flag Rock to name a few.

I would suggest getting a guide for your first day and also a tablet to put BobT's maps on and you will have a great time.

Plenty of lodging in the area as well.

Look into lodging with Wagon Wheel Resort, Pinnacle Creek Campground, Ashland Resort and cabins, etc. lots of trails in the area.

Thank you all I will be checking into all of them. Hopefully it'll be a early May ride, we like going Monday thru Thursday, the trails are always empty.

when we rode these systems we stayed at buffalo trail cabins. restaraunt, bar, and brewery on property, lots of cabins, during the busy system if you have a good size rig it can be time consuming to park it. Overall it is awesome and when we go back to ride these trail systems we will stay here again. free firewood too....

Buffalo trail is good place to stay (although I haven’t stayed there since new ownership). I am not a fan of Ashland at all...buffalo trail Is on the south end of pocahantas...you can hit Indian ridge and pinnacle from there also (long day...well over 100 miles) and you can take outlaws over to warrior trails (which are fantastic). If you stay near pineville, you can ride south on hm and outlaws to warrior trails also. Warrior is the best system of the southern trails imo

Was wondering what you dont like about Ashland? We brought the toy hauler down there last year and thought it was pretty nice, although we were out riding from sun up to sun down so not much time spent at the resort.

We bumped into a fellow down there who takes people on guides through the outlaw trails, my wife follows him on Facebook, really nice dude. We haven't ridden any outlaw trails yet but are really looking forward to it, especially anything that connects with the warrior system. Can't wait to try that place! Is there anything difficult there? Any good hill climbs, or is it all pretty tame like pocahontas and pinnacle?

Imo Ashland is over priced for what it is and it is usually packed to the gills with people. Indian ridge is a shell of its former self since all the logging and really isn’t worth riding anymore to me.

Ashland is great for people who want access to pinnacle, IR, and pocahantas as its easy and location is good. However, when using outlaws, you can get to any of the southern trail systems easily, no matter where you spend the night. I recommend using a tablet and bobT maps and you will be set

Warrior isn’t difficult, but the trails are longer than pinnacle and Pocahontas and more high speed...kind of like Devil anse. I rode it three times last summer and fall and they were virgin so it was hero dirt:). I imagine as time goes on some of the blacks will get rutted out and a little more challenging with use and weather. The black that is a loop (southwest corner of trail system) is a lot of fun

I rode Pinnacle/IR/Pocahontas last summer and thought they were all pretty awesome. Lots of high-speed rally-cross type driving. While I do like that, I’m going to hit Rockhouse next time cause I love the challenging technical climb and I think I’ll find more of that over there.

BTW, we stayed Ashland and loved it. The people running the place were great and very accommodating. The kid who did all the maintenance was a riot to shoot the shit with. Great folks down there!

Rockhouse has a couple of trails. But what you will want is Ivy Branch when it reopens this summer. People are riding it now including me today. But its not marked and you have to know where to park.

Just FYI, I guess local law makers are gunning for outlaw trail users, looking at a $1000 fine if caught riding off marked HM trails. Not sure if anything was passed and in effect yet, saw something was in the works thou.

I have read the bill and I don't think it's as bad as some people are making it out to be. This is an amendment to the HM statute and only refers to leaving the marked trails on the HM system. Basically I think this is a response to the Pocahontas issue with riders leaving a marked trail and going into an active mining area.

But many outlaws don't even connect to HM, so they would be unaffected. For now I would not leave a marked trail, especially off Pocahontas.

Not to thread jack, but wasn't kentucky working on a trail system similar to HMT? I remember seeing a petition in the past on here, which I signed, to start setting them up with state funding in order to revive otherwise dying towns.
