ATV: BIG SOUTH FORK NATIONAL RIVER & RECREATION AREA, TENNESSEE/KENTUCKY

Big South Fork ATV Adventures

Brimstone Recreation has become the Mecca ATV and Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) destination in the country. They promote the recreational use of over 19,000 acres with over 300 miles of groomed marked trails and roads nestled in the remote mountains of northeast Tennessee and within reach of the Big South Fork National River & Recreation Area which offers even more untamed wilderness. Brimstone Recreation added about 20 new trails in 2009. This offers lots of excitement, endless exploring, and unbelievable fun in the Appalachian Mountains. Brimstone’s varied terrain features mud, rock, and sand coupled with breathtaking mountain vistas. Their trails are as varied as the terrain and their professional team offers the beginner and the most experienced the ride of a lifetime.

Many outdoor enthusiasts visiting the Big South Fork come in for the
day to rent the new Kawasaki Teryx or a Rhino and explore the trails
with a guide or solo. This is a great activity for families and friends,
and the visitation at Brimstone has grown year after year, bringing over
15,000 visitors to this wonderful destination. There are also 30 miles
of great dirt bike trails, highlighted in the all new 2010 Brimstone Trail
Map. This map gives detailed information on all of the trails, places of
interest, and landmarks; helping you plan your memorable trip. Erika
Schmelter and her Dad, owner Mark Love, love what they do and are
passionate about every mile of trail. They endeavor to insure that each
visitor has an awesome time - with safety in mind. The vision for
Brimstone began in 2005. It has grown tenfold due to the popularity
of the sport, great repeat business, and the word of mouth advertising
around the country. It seems that everyone in the OHV and ATV world
is talking about Brimstone. Erika’s smile is contagious and she is a
joy to be around. She is knowledgeable, helpful, courteous, and very
professional.

Brimstone’s trails will take you to some gorgeous overlooks and bluff
views, geological wonders, magnificent vegetation, and wildlife. In
the spring, the redbuds, dogwoods and spring flowers will amaze you.
Fall is dramatic with the patchwork splashes of reds, yellows, oranges,
and all the various hues. Every visitor that views the vistas in the fall
will know that God is in control of this wondrous blanket of color.
Brimstone is located in the town of Huntsville, TN. They offer cabin
rentals for those seeking accommodation for a night, weekend or week
(or longer). The Cabins of Elk Run also offer cozy new log cabins
next to the trails or the popular Grand Vista Hotel is minutes away for
those seeking a comfortable, clean hotel with breakfast, Wi-Fi, phone
service, and an in-ground pool. There are lots of restaurants to serve
you a delicious meal, including Preston’s Steakhouse, the place to go
for steak in the Big South Fork. Fireside Restaurant is a family owned
restaurant that offers daily specials, and awesome fried green tomatoes.
Be sure to visit the Harrow Road Café in historic Rugby. They serve
excellent fish and chips, and other English fare.

Brimstone prides itself in its two signature events, the White Knuckle
event during Memorial Weekend and Brimstone’s Side by Side SXS
Round-Up in the fall. These functions are very popular, bringing
in thousands of outdoor enthusiasts. Many compete in their sport,
enjoy the music, eat delicious food, and hang out with like minded
adventurers! These popular events have also grown in the last
years and Brimstone continues to add to each to make them more
entertaining! The White Knuckle event has the “King of the Mountain”
- a fun and challenging event. This year they expect to attract more
than 5,000 OHV riders from multiple states and countries to enjoy the
family-friendly atmosphere and competitive outlet. Branded as the
“hold on tight” event of the year, the White Knuckle event attracts offroad
enthusiasts from all over North America. It is poised to become
the “Woodstock of ATV and SXS Events” going into its fourth year
with off-road enthusiasts attendance doubling each year. The event will
take place on May 28-30, 2010 at Brimstone Recreation. There will

difficult guided rides, and end with a meet and greet in the Huntsville
