  SFWDA is again offering both guided trail rides inside of Golden Mountain Park as well as excursion rides around the Sparta, TN area for everyone to make the most of their experience at Dixie Run. For excursions we plan to guide all the rigs that attend through scenic back roads and country roads while we spend some time along the route to explore some of the beautiful scenery the Cumberland Plateau area of Tennessee is known for. For guided park rides the plan is to run a morning and afternoon block for both Moderate and Advanced Moderate vehicle participants. All of this is included with your admission to Dixie Run 30.

  •  Each guided trail ride and excursion will have at least 2 experienced Guides to accompany you on your route. We welcome you all to come and join us. We have color coordinating Trail Ride Flags in the Ride Staging Area and they will determine your location to meet at the appropriate time.
  •  For all of our rides we ask that all drivers show up at least 15 minuted prior to departure. It is also advised to arrive prepared and ready to fueled up in advance. We'll conduct a brief drivers meeting and plan for a prompt departure. CB radios will be used on the rides so bring it if you have one but they're not mandatory.
