This week a group of the MTRA went to the Spearhead Trail. We were able to purchase our trail passes for the trail as well as the Mountain View atv club membership at local hardware store in St. Paul Va. The trails are well marked and most of the Spearhead trails are well boxed out and well suited for larger quads and SxS. Trail maintenance is on going on the Spearhead system so watch out for large equipment on the trail. We were able to talk to a few of the Rangers they informed us that you need both the Spearhead trail pass and the Mountain View pass to be allowed on BOTH systems if you only have one pass and are caught on the the trails without the correct pass there is a $100.00 fine. The rangers and staff were very friendly and helpful. The Mountain View trails were not as well marked or groomed however they much more technical and tight offering a good challenge for your average rider. We had a great time and can’t wait to go back and explore this system as we only got 30 miles in and never hit the same trail twice. For more information on this awesome trail system please visit their website Spearheadtrails.com.
We have almost sold all of our raffle tickets. We have a few left. Contact a MTRA member or your cycle shop for tickets.
You will have a chance of winning a part of history. MTRA will be raffling off a 1975 Bultaco Pursang at this years Christmas party on December 14th. This bike was donated by Bobby Richards and is being 100% completely restored (down to the Bolts) by Hugh Cannella. The bike will also come with a DVD of the re-build from start to finish. The tickets will be available at all MTRA events and at the club meetings as well. Tickets are $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00 you don’t have to be present to win. Remember that all the proceeds from this build will go to help further MTRA’s mission to help keep public lands open and to sustain and improve the riding areas we have. Good Luck!!!

These volunteers contribute their time, experience, and local knowledge of OHV areas by monitoring public lands in groups of two or more on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), utility vehicles (UTVs). OHV Ambassadors help promote positive off-highway vehicle operation ethics.
We had two instead of one fun ride to RoseHill. We visited White Rocks, Hensley Settlement, Wilderness Trail Off Road Park and Hole in the Wall.
We had to fix some flats and the record for us anyway is 9 plugs in one tire. Everyone is safe and sound.
