Wife and I would like to take a destination trip this summer with our sxs's. I see where people talk about riding for like 100-200 miles at a time. This is what we are looking for. Would like to stay in the midwest if possible.

Thanks

I know the Hatfield McCoy system is not really midwest, but with a little research and planning you can easily do 3 days 2 nights. Pick a starting point at one end of one of the multiple connected systems find a cabin in the middle ride spend the night ride out and back to same cabin then ride back to trailer. There are some companies offering tours that set everything up and know the off trail scenic/historical sites as well.

Not sure if you're looking to camp or stay in a cabin or a hotel, but I highly recommend Windrock. Several points of interest in the park, and the views are unmatched. Any degree of difficulty you want to tackle from gravel roads to extreme rock crawling and everything in between. Cabins can be difficult to book unless you go through the week, but there are hotels within a reasonable distance, and all the campgrounds are nice, clean, and friendly. My wife and I have been going there a few times a year for about 9 years now and I still haven't seen the whole place. We usually tent camp at Windrock Park Campground. You can message me on here if you want anymore info/tips.

Wow, both options sound like what we are looking for. We are about an hour west of Stl. Mo so both would be a pretty long trip. We'll do some research and get back. Do either of you have recommendations for tour guides for either place?

Depending on when you go, I could possibly come down & show you around a bit. Or look up Tackett Creek Guide Service if you have Instagram. Not sure if they have a website or other way to contact them.

There is a lot of riding beyond windrock.. east Tn has a LOT to offer. You should really consider a good gps making system if you’re planning on laying down some miles. You should also look at NW Arkansas for closer riding to you. Crossbar ranch in OK is supposed to be a neat place. But I haven’t been there yet.

And if you really want an awesome place you can lay down miles... head west!!

If you ever get out to Arizona we have the Peace Trail. It is a 750 mile loop. We do it in 6 days. Longest day is 175 miles shortest is 80. With some add ons we do about 850 miles.

Coal Country Tourz, Ziggys Powersports and Mountaintop Adventures are a few. The three day rides that Coal Country Tourz puts on fill up fast because they limit number of machines which is nice.

Wow! I would love to do that ride. I retire in a few years, might just have to do it. Thanks for sharing!

Your welcome. If you ever get out here I'll organize a ride. I have the whole trail on my GPS and ridden the trail many times.

Sounds good Grant. I also like your original post idea. I didn't realize there were so many choices. You guys have all been a ton of help with great advise.
