Here in Bell County we are following suite with the Holler Crawlers Off-Road Club. We are in progress of developing the 9,000 acre Wilderness Trail Off-Road Park with some of the most fantastic views you will ever see of both the Cumberland and Pine Mountain ranges...plus the soon to be world famous MUD BOWL. Even though the park is still under development, it is still open to ride, but you will need a guide until we get maps/trailheads completed. Plus we in Bell County are working on an additional 50,000+ acres of off-park riding. Price: FREE

For info check out the Holler Crawlers website: hollercrawlers -

Also we have Leslie County, our neighbors to the north. Their resident club, the Daniel Boone Trailblazers, offer free guided tours through the Daniel Boone Natl Forest and Redbird Crest Trails. They are the first ATV club to partner witht he US Forest Service. It is not uncommon to see a herd of elk on their rides. Price: FREE

For more info check out the Trailblazers website: DBTrailblazers -

The best part: all 3 counties are working right now to get all of their trails interconnected, making for one HUGE riding area. Keep checking in for more info!

      Common misconception is that you need to return to the dealer for an exact
      oil filter for your ATV.  Aftermarket companies actually make filters for
      the O.E.M. market. Why go to the dealer when you can get the exact filter you
      need at your local auto parts store such as CARQUEST or NAPA. Wix corporation
      makes ATV filters that you'll find in most of your popular autopart stores. 
      In most cases, you'll pay allot less! 
      WIX is a leader in the filter business.  Check out this
      ATV FILTER CATALOG.  Remember, you can
      right down the filter # and have it cross-referenced at your local autopart
      store if they don't carry WIX, CARQUEST, or NAPA.
      You can also click on the part # for the filter image.

      I have a 1995 Yamaha 350 big bear and I am having trouble starting it. You can hear the solenoid click but starter motor won't engage. Should I be looking at the starter motor or solenoid?  Any suggestions are appreciated.
