well said jim85iroc twin brook's is veeeeeery expensive (6.95 for a burger) compared to patty wagon at a-z( FOR A BURGER JUST AS GOOD,A SODA,AND CHIP'S FOR $5 DOLLAR'S) AND THEN THE TIFT'S TRADING POST ALSO HAS GAS FOR ALMOST A $1.50 CHEAPER THEN TWIN CROOK'S YEP I SAID IT TWIN CROOK'SThere's a burger/hot dog wagon at A-Z Snowmobiles. It's called the "Patty Wagon". It's basically like the Weenie Wagon that used to park up on Kelley Stand. Their prices are a bit higher than the Weenie Wagon, but are still better than Twinbrooks. Though there's nowhere to sit inside, they do have an outside stove set up with some picnick tables.
There's also Tiff's Trading Post (Used to be Tru's Store) in Woodford. You need to go east on the powerlines a mile or two past the groomed section, then you turn left off the lines. Unfortunately, I didn't see any signage pointing you in the right direction until you were already headed that way. In any case, if you ask anybody for directions to Tru's or to Prospect while you're on the mountain, you should find the trail. Once on it, it's a couple miles of single-width bumpy trail, but it's not too bad. It's fairly well travelled. If you like smaller trails, it makes a nice loop through Prospect Mt. over to the Heartwellville parking lot where you can pick up the groomed trail (9W) back to 7N.[/b]
Thanks for the info, much appreciated!Belmont is about 30 miles past jenks, or Damby is a good place through Mt. Tabor gas and deli. If you dont want to go that far out head up 7c 100 to mount Snow, sitz mark or deacons den but they open at 4 pm weekdays.[/b]
how do you get to that from the tavern???Just to clarify, Deacon's Den is now called Deegan's Tavern.
There's also a 7-11 nearby that's trail accessable, so you can get cheap food and reasonably priced gas there. If you look at your VAST map, they're below WM 11.[/b]
Gas seems to be a tough issue this winter, less places that you can ride to and fill up.I rode to the Matterhorn in Dover (next to the Police Station) from Woodford Wednesday with Tirolskier. There is a trail that is off to the left but was closed so access to 7-11 is not possible without awakening the sleeping bear next door. The owner of the Matterhord does do gas runs -- he did for myself and three other riders that came in afterwards. We all had a lunch there. Great peirrogies too.[/b]
Not knowing if Jenks was open after dark for gas, sub zero temps, a rider who was probably border line Hypothermic, it cold have been a very cold, or dangerouse situatuion last night.Unfortunately, very true indeed. I was thinking of (a) installing a tour buddy on my Tcat, (b) hauling gas on the tail end of my Tcat, or © ride a 4 stroke, my T660 2up.[/b]
after you leave trail 100 (WM 18), you come to a Y in the trail (I think this is WM 11). You go right for Deegan's Pub. If you go left, it takes you down to a plowed road. You continue down the side of the plowed road for a very short time and you'll come out at the 7-11 on highway rt 100.how do you get to that from the tavern???
I thought the trail ended there unless you took the valley trail back to wilmington chimney hill area WE were trying to go eat at dots of dover but did not know how to get any further north??The trail seemed to end at dover police station unless you crossed the street.[/b]
