Probably the best bet. Let me know how it goes if you do go, If I had the free time available I would join you on the Africa Twin. Finding new trails is always a good time.

This map www.4x4trailmaps.com/Files/Maps/knoxville.pdf makes it clear that there is a loop back to south entrance. Looking at the topo, it looks like the drop off isn't as steep as coming from the campground, maybe going to the waterfall from Devilhead instead of the campground won't trigger my fear of heights

I'm going on Sunday with some other folks possibly. I'll report back and anyone is welcome to join. Planning to go from campground down and around.

Have two or three other barfers meeting at the north entrance on plated dual sports on Sunday at 9am if anyone wants to come ride. Post up here if we should expect you. Assume ksu 9:30am from North entrance.

We plan to ride to the Hunting Creek Campground and take the trail to the waterfall and do the loop past there to Devilshead rd and then figure it out other trails from there.

A buddy and myself are planning to be in the neighborhood, but probably an hour plus behind you and we'll be coming in from the south entrance. Not sure, if either of us are up to tackle the waterfall trail, we may just wait for your report

Cool. There are going to be a couple of us. I'll be on a 350 excf. I think there will be a beta, crf450l and another ktm450 and possibly a wr450 in our group depending on who shows up. After the waterfall we plan to come back up Devilshead Rd and then not sure what we will do.

So we found the waterfall! Not much water falling but was a fun trail. Super glad I was on the 350 and not the 950 because it was loose and rocky in a couple places and it would have been exhausting on a big bike.

One of the guys slipped on some algae crossing the water fall and took a dip in the water by mistake! I was too slow getting my phone out to document it but got some of the aftermath.

So the trail from the campground to the waterfall is very easy. After that it gets more rocky and less flat. There were a few climbs up loose rocky stuff but nothing impassible. Just need to keep momentum going in a few spots.

After that we found some more trails on the north end to explore and I’ll be going back to hit more of those trails.

Nice recon and intel

Sorry we missed you, we just ended up doing the traditional DS ride (jeep trail, to Reiff and beyond).

Awesome, looks like a fun challenge for future me once I'm a little bit more proficient on the DRZ.

HAHAHA! where that XR was stuck is the exact same place I got stuck but on the AT. It was a bitch to do by myself.

Glad I didnt attempt going up the otherside. Def not a solo ride

I didn’t get my camera out much. Really fun ride! Great crew! Thanks Daniel for organizing it. Hadn't ridden with Adam in years.
