My son is in town and we want to go ride my new Kubota RTC-XG850. There is Adventure Off Road park, about 5 miles northwest of South Pittsburgh, or there is Franklin State Forest Horse and ATV Trails about 7 miles SE of Sewanee.

We're thinking Franklin Forest. Worth the drive there for newbie UTV riders or should we go to the $40 AOR park?

Not interested in mud, hard rock climbing or mud; just want to explore and see the sights off road.

Thanks!

Good point, but my son leaves Monday. Sounds like AOR to keep away from interrupting hunters.

When I lived in Monteagle we would ride it every weekend in the summer. It does suck when your deer hunting and a group of ATVs or horse riders come thru.

Ok, dumb question time: When does deer season end at Franklin State Forest?
