The event is always held on the first weekend in October. Normally there are 75 to 90 miles of trails to ride. A lot of that was reduced this year as two sections of the trail were closed. The road from the Forest Lodge to the back of Marienville was one of those roads closed. It made the ride a little more difficult as we had to trailer our atv's to Marienvile and unload instead of riding from the motel. A lot of people attending were from Ohio, New York and Pa. Frank & Sue at the Forest Lodge made it a comfortable stay under the conditions of trails being closed. This event helps sponsor the community - fire departments, Lions Club, Relay for Life, local ATV club and many others. For those not wanting to atv can tour some craft shows in surrounding towns -- Franklin, Sheffield. A couple great restaurants for breakfast & dinner. Hopefully the roads will be open for next years event.
