 Southern Woods Rider invites you to attend the 20th Anniversary of the Fall Trail Ride at Loretta Lynn's Ranch. At last years event there were over 900 Dirt Bike and ATV riders from around the nation in attendance over the three-day event. To cover all levels of riding skills SWR prepares a small beginners loop near the campground area, a 3 to 5-mile novice loop and a 15 to 20-mile main loop. In addition we have a Friday Night Poker Run and a Saturday night banquet. The banquet is a big hit so we have limit the attendance to 300 meal tickets. During the banquet we give out special awards and acknowledgments to the event volunteers, touch on any important off-road news and giveaway many great door prizes.

SWR continues the strong tradition of the fall ride in the education of participants on safety and trail etiquette while continuing to bring riders of all ages exhilarating riding opportunities. All ATV and Dirt Bike riding responsible individuals and families are welcome to attend.

Southern Woods Rider is excited to announce that ALTA Motors will be participating in our 21th Anniversary of Fall Trail Ride.  ALTA will be offering demo rides on their exciting electric REDSHIFT MX dirt bike.  Demos are for paid event participants on Friday and Saturday from 9:30am to 12:00pm and 1:00pm 2:30pm. Look for the Demo trucks in the campground during the event for more details.

ALTA Gold Transm

The REDSHIFT MX is designed as the electric equivalent of a modern 250 dirt bike.  It is as capable on trails as it is on track. The REDSHIFT MX requires no air filters, oil changes or top end rebuilds, so you'll spend less time wrenching and more time riding. Come experience what many riders believe is the most fun dirt bike they have ever thrown a leg over.   For more information on ALTA Motors visit their website at www.altamotors.co

The Trail

The trail will be clearly marked and you can ride it at your own pace as much as you like during the open trail hours. There will be riding opportunities for all from beginner to advance. The trail lengths and locations will be announced at each of the rider meetings. The main trail’s difficulty level will be moderate. Some of the hill-climbs are tough, and occasionally the trail may be narrow and/or off-camber. Some of the areas are rocky and other areas are normal dirt.


There will be a Saturday night BBQ family banquet with tons of door prizes. Doors will open at 7:00 pm-ish. Banquet tickets are available for $15.00 through both methods of preregistration or at the event during designated registration times. Tickets are limited to 300 participants so order your tickets now.
