Sulphur Creek Trails, Elkmont, Alabama NEW TRAILS !

Hi !


Just thought I'd let those know who are close to the Alabama/Tennessee border around I-65 - there's a new trail system available !  They have a page on Face Book.  Just type Sulphur Creek Trails in the search and you'll see it.  I rode them this morning before the rain set in.  HOW wonderful they are !  I'm SO excited about them and can't wait to go again.  There's a $50 annual membership fee that I feel is WELL worth it !  I would have taken pictures but I didn't want to because I was afraid if I brought my cell phone, it would have gotten wet.  Because I didn't bring it is why it didn't rain until we got back.  *smirk*


If you want to ride, let me know !  I'd love to join you !

Happy Trails !

Jackie, did you ride the new trail from the falls back to the left! It had pink ribbons on the trees? Just wondering if you found the HILL!!!!!

Well, there are some places I don't go when it's wet there but it's drying out well now ! I'm going to be there hopefully every day from now till Sunday ! Had a BLAST there today !

Rode at Ellmont on Friday! It was great except for the new trail from the falls back to the left. Really bad hill, when its wet. We had a guy fall off. I walked up and lead my horse. Pretty steep! Talked to Jerry he said he would look at it and make sure it was safe! Had a great time, wished I could've camped out that night!!!

I don't think I saw you but I managed to get there on time and absolutely enjoyed it! I'll be coming back!

Taylor-Silly me - I didn't realize the ride was starting from the Pavilion on the front side of the trails.  Normally, everyone parks on the back of the property but this included lunch, etc.  I hope to meet you out there on the trails one day.  Let me know if you are going and I'll meet you !

Taylor - It starts at 10:00. Which direction are you coming from ?  It's about 4 miles west of Elkmont Center.  Head west on Upper Fort Hampton Road.  You'll go less then a mile and come to a stop sign for a major road.  Can't remember the state road # at the moment.  No matter.  Stay straight continuing west.  The road name is Morris Road.  Go to the end about 3 miles and take a left onto Easter Ferry Road.  Go about a mile or so, the road will take a turn to the right, you'll cross a bridge over Sulphur Creek and the gate is on the left.  There's a blue road sign and I think it says "Elkmont Rural Village back entrance.  So, refresh my memory who this is for.  I plan to be there Saturday but I don't want to get there that early.  Probably more like 11:00-11:30.  Have fun !  Become a member of this trail system !  It's worth the $50 !

Hey! I'm wanting to ride at their benefit ride this Saturday 12/3/11 but I don't know anything other than who it's for!!! I can't seem to find directions to it, the price, and what time it is for sure starting.

Jackie, I met you at the top of the hill going to the falls. I was on that big bay mare. I said to you," there's your sister", talking to my horse of course. I loved it there. We were in the black f 250 that was parked over by itself. That is a great place. Have you rode the boot trail?

Janet -
I was there today too ! I was riding a bay mare and ponying another little bay mare. I have a green Ford F350 extend cab with a Sooner 4 horse slant load. Next time you're there and you see me, please introduce yourself ! "www.chanceyspeaceofheaven.com" Looking forward to riding with you sometime ! Jackie Dannenberg
