Join SFWDA on November 4, 2017 for our
Fall Meet n' Ride, Slade, KY. 

OHIO RIVER FOUR WHEELERS and Kentucky Krawlers would like to invite our friends from SFWDA to head north for our second annual Meet & Ride day of wheeling in the Daniel Boone National Forest / Red River Gorge area. We would like to show our appreciation for all the support SFWDA has provided to help develop and promote the Daniel Boone Back Country Byway / DBBB.

There are NO registration or trail package fees for this event.

This may change due to Hollerwood Park opening later this year. We will notify through the Facebook event page. We are working on a free cost event even if Hollerwood Park is open.

We have enlisted volunteers from several local clubs to assist as Trail Boss,Mid-gunner, and Tail-gunners, for several trail combination packages, from Mild to Extreme. We will have something for everyone. Experience some of the trails you've heard about in this area: DBBB, Carburetor Hill, HairPin, WidowMaker,
and others. We have added extra trails this year, that were not open last year.

The Slade / Natural Bridge area is about 165 miles north of Knoxville, TN at Exit 33 off the Burt T. Combs Mountain Parkway.

We are eager to help you enjoy the trails we call HOME.
The following pages list registration instructions, hotel, camping & RV accommodations and local restaurants that will be open to make your weekend enjoyable.

Registration & Rules to Ride:

You MUST go through the SFWDA event site to register (RSVP) for this event.
Space will be limited this year to 150 vehicles. We had 138 last year.
Non-registered arrivals may be be added to groups if space allows.
Once you complete registration at SFWDA website, PRINT A HARD COPY OF YOUR REGISTRATION FORM AND BRING IT TO THE EVENT. YOU WILL NEED THIS FORM FOR THE INTAKE &TECHNICAL INSPECTION PROCESS.

We will offer 4 difficulty levels of trail riding this year:

  • EASY - Stock All Terrain Tires (31in.) - Green Sticker
  • MEDIUM - (33in. minimum tire) - Blue Sticker (Locker could be useful)
  • DIFFICULT - (35in. minimum tire)- Red Sticker (Minimum one locker)
  • EXTREME - (38in. minimum tire) - Orange Sticker (Front & Rear locker required)


You may go down in tires size if you like to join an easier group, however you may not go up in difficulty level with a smaller tire size.
This is to insure we keep rigs moving on the trails during the day, since other group will be using the same trails.

Due to the terrific turnout last year, we will begin the Intake / Tech Inspection Process at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Get in line early to ensure your spot in the group you'd like to ride with. Groups will depart the campground beginning at 8:30 - 9:00.

EACH rig must carry a First Aid Kit. You will not be put into a group if you don't have these items onboard.

Your rig MUST have one recovery point on vehicle.

A CB radio and full size spare tire are strongly suggested.

Each vehicle will bring a lunch meal & drinks to enjoy during a break on the trail.

Regardless of what difficulty level of ride you choose, at times you will be traveling on Kentucky county roads. You may not carry or consume any illegal drugs or alcohol when trail riding. Adult beverages around the campfire in the evening are welcome.

Our goal is for everyone to have a safe & fantastic experience.
