NEW OHV TRAILS IN EAST CENTRAL ALABAMA
Just Trails, LLC, a company dedicated to affordable and rustic recreational trail riding for 4 wheelers and off road motorcycles, has just announced they are planning on opening Doc Hilt Trails, a new private off road recreational trails area on Good Hope Road in Lineville, Alabama, located in the east central part of the state in the Talladega Mountains. They plan to be open on Saturday, July 18, 2009.
With over 1 million off highway vehicles (OHV) in Alabama alone, and over 5 million when including the surrounding states of Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee, the demand is very high for quality off road trails. Gannon Murphy, the Manager of Doc Hilt Trails says they expect to draw riders regularly from Atlanta, Birmingham, Columbus, and Montgomery. “There are very few trails that people can take advantage of within this regional area. It is 100 miles or less from each of four major downtown areas, and it’s a very easy drive. The country setting in the Talladega Mountains is truly something to experience and enjoy. Simply put, these are good trails that will prove to be a whole lot of family fun!”
The trails range in difficulty from easy to very experienced, with most in the moderately experienced category. Murphy credits Glenn Myers, President of the Cheaha Trail Riders Association, with the outstanding guidance he contributed to the trail building and overall facility design.
Doc Hilt Trails, where the road ends and the trails begin, is situated on approximately 500 acres, and has miles of hilly and mountainous trails for ATVs and dirt bikes. They will also have several primitive camping areas along side the trails for riders to enjoy, with some offering a streamside campsite, while others have long gorgeous mountain views from a ridge along the eastern edge of the Talladega National Forest. For RVers, campsites with hook-ups are planned for the future, but parking lot camping will be allowed in the interim. Initially the trails will be open Saturdays and Sundays each week, with plans to be open 7 days a week as soon as is practical.
For about the same price or less that an average family would spend on a single restaurant meal and a night at the movies, they can enjoy the riding facility for a full day. The pricing is $25 per ATV/motorcycle and driver, and each additional person/rider is $10/day. Groups of 10 or more can get a special rate. There is a $5 coupon for general use, and a $15 off coupon for new vehicle owners, to take advantage of on their website at www.DocHiltTrails.com. Included in the price is primitive camping, either at a single camp site or choose from a number of areas for group camping. Also included in the price is the use of a wash station to knock the mud and dust off of your OHV. Day riders can make use of the campsites too, to have a meeting place for their group, or simply to have lunch or take a break.
Even the kids will have a place to ride as they have built a practice/kids trail as well. Imagine riding your ATVs and camping under the blanket of stars in the Talladega Mountains of Clay County. You’ll be hard pressed to wipe that Monday morning grin off of your face. You can visit their web page for more complete information and directions at www.DocHiltTrails.com.
