Adventure Off Road Park
Guided Trail & Scenic Excursion Rides
Information and Schedule
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.
Need to Know about Guided Trail Riding
Tread Lightly! principles will be observed at all times.
Your welcome to ride along on and participate in as many guided trail rides as you wish.
Trial Routes have been carefully pre-determined and should be suitable for rigs based on the categories described of each group.
Each group will have a brief drivers meeting before departure to become acclimated with the planned route and debrief on all safety, and communications, along with best practices when riding in groups.
CB Radios are suggested but not required. We encourage good radio communication and groups will be on a designated channel.
Each Guided Trail Ride through AOP is approximately 2-3 hours long
Excursion Rides are approximately 4-5 hours long.
Every Guided Route will include at minimum One Trail Guide and One Tail Gunner.
Our goal is to depart each guided trip with no more than approximately 15 rigs per total. We can and will split rides into multiple groups to accommodate everyone and the trail system itself for maximum efficiency.
A brief drivers meeting with all participants will commence 15 minutes before each scheduled departure time. You must arrive on time!
In the South rain is a weather factor which can elevate the difficulty rating of some trails as much as one whole level higher on average.
While each route category has a few different levels of basic requirements, most would benefit from use of some additional suggested equipment. While you want to be prepared you also don't be to be overloaded.
CB Radio, Tool Kit, Spare Tire, Tire Patch Kit, and some common spare parts are all suggested equipment to have on-board.
May we suggest our series of Educational Videos aimed at assisting you in coming prepared and making the most out of your trip for both yourself and everyone else in your group. Topics in our Education Series include "What to bring on a One Day Trail Ride", Group Trail Riding Etiquette, How to Tread Lightly, and much more.
