So is this the section (via MTB project) that starts near "Crooked Creek Church" and goes past "Panther Camp?" It has a yellow "!" that reads: "steep descent with water bars," but clockwise is going UP it?
I should just go figure this out for myself, but it's nice to have an idea of which way to approach it...
As a bicycle retailer I will say that it is pretty confusing trying to explain to a customer what is required to ride the bike they just bought.
Want to check out Yellowwood? No pass required. But if you get into HNF, HNF trail tag required.
BCSP? You have to pay a gate fee, AND have a state park ride pass, but only if you're on certain trails. "But that pass work for all IN state parks???" "so I use THAT pass for Yellowwood?" "No, no, that's a state FOREST, not state PARK, no pass needed there." "Oh okay, 'forest,' so the HNF tag works there?" "No, that's NATIONAL forest, not STATE forest..."
I think this should be made "easier." I have a friend from out of state but that is in IN frequently for work and makes fun of "us" for this.
Or maybe HNF could get some $$ from the park trail passes to produce some sort of color-coded map of the state indicating what is needed where.
Curious: from the newsletter "Miller Ridge: Double track, including one of the hardest climbs in the State."
Is this the climb from the dam up to the gravel road? I want to make sure I'm hitting this

Related to the above discussion, does anyone know the "legal" status of Davis Creek rd, which would allow you to connect to YW from the West (from TC Steele)?
I started down it a couple weeks ago and a ways down it there are "private" and "no trespassing" signs on the road. I went past them a bit to see what the deal is (because I was under the impression this was a road) and there is at least one house. I turned around to not get into anything with a local. But curious if anyone has connected via Davis Creek rd and/or if that road is actually private and illegal to be on.
We rode the yellowwood trail this past weekend. I was impressed with how good the built trails are! I definitely preferred the "Miller" side to the "Bartley" side, but it was a good system overall!
And 20minutes from my house!
I assume a day-pass is available too? I bought my annual yesterday and the dude didn't mention a day option (but I didn't ask either). And for out-of-towners?
I know this has all been brought up, but I can see this as discouraging for newbs. Like "oh, I got a bike, I'm going to go ride it!. Oh, I have to pay to get in? Bummer, but whatever. Oh, I also have to pay to ride? Double bummer. Wait, what happens if I get off the 'beginner' trail? Where IS the beginner trail?..." This sounds like a real hassle for people that don't know what they're doing and don't know what trail is what.
