Myself and a group of friends are heading out Easter weekend to check out WildernessRider's Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park.

I will be driving out Thursday and heading back on Monday for 3 full days (FRI, SAT, SUN) of riding. This is not an organized event. Just a group of folks heading out to ride, camp, enjoy the scenery and kick tires. We invite you to join us. Donny tells me that this is absolutely the best time of year to experience the property.

I am keeping a tally for interest below just in case people want to coordinate traveling together.

IN:
1.) WildernessRider
2.) Hail (Brad)
3.) Tourmeister (Scott & Company)
4.)

MAYBE:
1.) William Wolfson
2.) KamLeeR

Well, it is likely an insurance related issue, which is understandable.

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

Scott, personal friends of mine, who I actually know how they will watch over their children are excluded from the 12 and over rule. The place is just too wild and vast to allow folks I don't know, who may or may not really understand or endorse their responsibilities to keep their children in constant and close proximity at all times. I have had my own children & grand children out on the place as they were growing up without any incidents...but we did have to keep up with them at all times when they were younger. I would love to see your family come up and enjoy the place. The Ozarks were absolutely enchanting back when i was a visiting youngster from the coastal flat lands of Houston. I always enjoy seeing that same look of awe in the young ones faces as they take in the mountain sights and activities for the first time. There are also several great clear water canoeing rivers in our imediate region, so do bring your wet suits if you have any interest in such. The water is usually a little too chilly that time of year for most people without a suit.

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

We are thinking of coming up and making a week of it. We'll probably stay in Harrison though rather than camp. Although, I might bring camping stuff just in case and maybe stay there a few nights if the weather is nice. We'll probably only ride a few days and then do other stuff a few days. Will probably come up Sunday and then we have to be back by Saturday. Still ironing out the details.

Donny, do you have a few tracks we can load on GPS to guide us around the property? ...or do you just recommend heading out and exploring?

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

As I don't yet own or operate a GPS, I don't have any of the tracks for my place. Maybe someone can record some while I show you guys around on the first couple days.

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

We reworked a portion of that long loop around by the Church in the Boxley Valley, so that we don't have to go thru the yard beside that log rental cabin any more.

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

At this time I have some limited true single track. But I have many miles of once upon a time logging roads, some of which have degenerated down to only trails thru the woods. Some are fairly tame and others much more challenging. I welcome more riders who want to explore the remote stuff. This is the best time of year to be riding and opening up the over grown and obscure runs. Also non-plated bikes are allowed on the dirt roads inside Newton County.

Re: Chase the Easter Bunny @ Buffalo Ranch and Adventure Park - April 13th - 17th

Well, I have started the process of going through the carbs on all the kid's bikes to get them in good running order after sitting for months on end... That and new air filters and an oil change and they will all be good to go. I just have to figure out how I am gonna get six bikes up there in a single axle enclosed trailer Gonna be a tight fit!
