Well we are moving from West texas back to East texas.
I am looking for some fellow trail riders to buddy up with. May also be able to provide some limited area to ride in marshall, tx. I am 35, went back to riding dirt bikes after a very long, long break (think 20+ years). And Avery my partner in crime, she is 8 years old. No real fast paces or anything. thanks:rider:

Did you find some good trails for yourself and the young gun? I have family that live in Tyler and have considered a ride with my son. What was good there?

Barnwell is in Gilmer. Its pretty good riding. Its about 85 miles from me so I don't get there as often as I would like. Anyone wants to meet up there let me know. I ride a 250XC and my son rides a 125SX.

Barnwell mtn is great! Caution on the young guns the trail ratings posted were rated when the park first opened. So some may be rated as 2 diamond but have been washed out to a 4+ and visa versa. My 10yo rode 1/2 of the park on a ttr 90 and begged for more:rider:

It's easy to find hard trails at Barnwell, but there are lots of access roads and 2-track to explore that are great for any level of rider as long as you stay away from the rocks. I go out there at least 2-3 times a month on either my XCW or my trials bike. My wife rides with me most of the time, so we're not in a big hurry. Hit me up if you'd like a +1 or just a few directions.

I'm available this Thursday PM. :thumb:
