There are 4 riding areas nearby but all will seem very lame after 2 days of good southern Ohio DS trails! Wayne National Forest has 2 divisions that allow riding with a daily permit, to the north of McArthur near Nelsonville and to the south near Ironton. Also available are 2 state forest trail systems, to the north near New Lexington is Perry State Forest and very close to McArthur and south is Richland Furnace State Park. IMO none will entertain you for longer than a few hours. I would recommend making the 3 hour or less drive to Hatfield McCoy in West Virginia if you don't get your fill of riding at the Baby Burr.

Thanks for the info, I'll do some research on those areas.
We have covered about all Hatfield McCoy has to offer, although they have a lot of ground the single track is short and ranges from tricky to near impossible depending on conditions.

FYI, in case you've never ridden in southern Ohio, this would describe it when it rains!

SE Ohio is hell on earth when it rains. I think my record for enduro DNF's still stands at 13 straight!

Probably why that area has bred a few top enduro riders!

Default baby burr

Hope you made it to BB. NO Rain so trails were not too hard. Some very rocky hill climbs that clammed many a victim. Flat tires were the problem of the day, I saw at least 6 riders fixing flats.
They had some rain a few days before so trails were very nice. Only 2 sections got dusty enough you had to slow down a little bit.
Lots of road just before and after lunch on Saturday but the length of the trails made up for that.
Overall it was a good ride and we will be back again next year.

Next weekend Nutcracker in Logan Ohio OR
Lumberjack 100 Enduro, Dual sport ride starts after all enduro guys have left in Bergholz, Ohio ,(Southeast of Carrolton or Nw of Wellsville Ohio
Just an FYI
