Joe, I have to agree with you. After riding HMT for several years and riding Brimstone for several years there is no comparison. Hands down Brimstone is waaaaay more challenging.
I'll be at Brimstone this weekend and find out if I am being told correctly. I stayed there two weeks ago but took a tumble off my Brute Force on a TRWA trail and had to go home early. Now keep in mind I look at the trials as riding a ATV, not a SXS. I like to ride my ATV the first day, and then the RZR the next day. So rating Brimstone as a RZR rider your going to have a whole different opinion. The ruts are not an issue on a RZR. The last time I rode Brimstone was I think in September. So maybe they did some maintenance. I just turned 51, so I think God is telling me it's time to turn in the keys to the ATV and just ride my RZR full time! Honestly ATV's are in the minority any more. It's too bad, but I get it. The SXS is an easy way to enjoy the trails without worrying about getting tossed or taking a fall. I see a lot of folks in those 4 seater's with their kids. We never had children, but if we did, and my wife would ride with me, what a great weekend that would be. Mom and dad get to do what they like and the kids have fun too. Hard to find activities like that.I've been riding Brimstone for close to ten years and I'm wondering where the deep ruts and mud are located. There are some trails with mud but very few. There is everything from easy to difficult. Trail 5 is still easy and we use it as a connector to get to the difficult trails. Sorry but Brimstone and Windrock put HMT trailsystem to shame. But then again I don't like riding dusty gravel logging roads.
That would be ideal. Even if there was no discount.It would be nice if TN would have one pass for all the places like HMT, but a lot of the TN trails are private property.
Just walked in the door from getting back from Brimstone for 4 days. I saw a bunch of ATVs and I agree they struggle at Brimstone on some of the trails. I saw a whole group of them stuck on 49. We stick to the tougher trails. You might have seen usThat would be ideal.

My real issue with TN is you never know what condition a trail is going to be in. Last time at RRB I was in my old Commander and there were a couple of greens I really struggled with due to the ruts. No idea how an ATV would have made it through. At least HM keeps their trails so that Greens are Greens.
