Title: Durhamtown worth going?
Post by: prosa69 on January 27, 2016, 04:00:31 PM
Im trying to get from input on if its worth it to go to Durhamtown?    We were planning a trip to the mountains and was going to stop and spend a few days there on the way up.   We currently have ridden Canaveral groves, 5A, croom, Ocala NF, Suburban estates, mudmuckers :( (I liked that place)..and other places/events...  My question is it worth it to haul the quads and dirt bikes up there or will I be disappointed by the quality of riding they can offer?   So any feedback will be helpful.    So anyone that has been there and rode other places let me know your opinion on what you think.

Do it, you won't regret it. It's all one-way trails for quads and dirt bikes. Plus, there's multiple tracks for dirt bikes, too.

I have not used the rentals for several years now as I bring my own toy hauler.  When I did I used the cabins and they are the most basic a bed and bathroom.  Ted Kaczynski's cablin would have been better.

Was just there in December. Been going since 06 at least once a year. Depending on how many you want to sleep the foxtrot is pretty clean cabin. IMO they've quit putting money into the trails the last few years. If tracks are your thing you will be fine. If you go at a rainy time be prepared to have hardly any trails to ride. We ended up leaving after day 2 of 3 because nothing was going to open up. They can't control weather but like I said they quit grooming trails a while ago. We're going to try Carolina Adventure World this year. Newer cabins and from what I'm hearing if it rains your trip isn't over.

I've been going to Durhamtown since 2006. I try to make it twice a year, I absolutely love the place. It really depends on the time of the year when you go for the trails to be groomed whether it's every couple of
days or once every couple of weeks. The tracks are pretty well kept in shape. It's a very rugged place though. Everyone that works their is either kin or close to kin, some of the workers in the past I've met can
be a little rude, but everyone has bad days and at the end of the day everyone is merry and ready to relax in the lodge and enjoy some drinks. Mike(the owner) real nice guy me and my dad over the years have
played pool with him in the lodge countless times while enjoy some crown and cokes. The only cabin I've slept in is the Hilton with a bunch of buddies and our girlfriends, they are very basic and i can't imagine
the trailers being much different. Our girlfriends from what i remember at the time were not too fond of the cabins but to us guys they were a place to sleep, eat, and drink. the trails are not whooped like
croom, they are move spaced out. You're riding on clay so it's definitely a little more brutal on the body compared to riding in Ocala or Croom. Definitely check out West Virginia's Hatfield & McCoy too!
