There will be some Mid TN JK's heading up to KY for a ride on the first day of spring 3-20-2010. We will be doing mostly easy to moderate trails and will make sure there is a bypass on any difficult trials we do. The trails are located in the Land between the Lakes National Recreation Area in KY. Turkey Bay has approximately 100 miles of OHV trails which cover a variety of terrain. LBL is located east of Cadiz KY off of I-24 approximately 90 miles from Nashville. This is an open invite to all JkOwners. More details to follow as we get closer to the date.
We have 12 confirmed going as of 2-12 and will be doing two groups
