Re: March 19, 2016 Club Ride - Royal Blue

Permit Info!
*You are essentially buying a hunting permit and can be purchased anywhere TN hunting licenses are sold. I would suggest buying them in advanced.
*If buying a daily permit they can be purchased ahead of time, just make sure the daily is dated for the day of the ride.
*Only one permit per vehicle needed.
*When buying the permit tell them the "Type(s)" below for which one you want/need.
*If you already have a TN Sportsman License then nothing else is needed

TN Residents
Yearly: Purchase Type 001 and Type 093....Total is $55

Daily: Purchase Type 036....$15.50/ per day.....Make sure it is dated for the day of the ride


Non-Resident (Out of State)
Yearly: Purchase Type 071 and Type 093....Total $132

Daily: Purchase Type 038....$37.50/ per day.....Make sure it is dated for the day of the ride.

At this time we are not sure if the closure will effect this ride. We will wait on word from "BIGMIKE" to let us know what their plans are if the interstate is not opened back up or not.

Re: March 19, 2016 Club Ride - Royal Blue

From the info I have recieved southbound lanes should open up in 2 weeks, northbound will open 1 lane in 3-4 weeks which would put it possibly the week after the ride. Ride will still go as planned, everyone will just need to allow extra time, there are still 2 ways to get to the campground.

1- follow interstate traffic thru lafollete and up 25, a few miles up 25 stinking creek road is to your left, then 12 miles to the campground.

2- exit off the interstate with traffic at lafollete exit, but turn left and cotinue straight, this is Old Hwy 63 until you run into Hwy 63, turn right and go less than a mile, take first gravel road on left, this is the beginning of Stinking Creek road and stay on it until you reach the campground.

Re: March 19, 2016 Club Ride - Royal Blue

so who all is planning to go? I had hoped the interstate would be open by the time of the ride but looks like it's not going to be. so for those that are familiar with the area, how hard are the detours to find? going left to old 63 and around to 63 then left to gravel road sounds like the best option. anybody been that way? I have only been up to royal blue one time and that was straight up the interstate, never been on any of those other roads.

Re: March 19, 2016 Club Ride - Royal Blue

Went up that way yesterday and there are Ride Royal Blue signs at both ends of Stinking Creek Rd. pointing to the campground. Either way you go should be no trouble finding it. Hwy 63 side is gravel rd to where it crosses the interstate then pavement the rest of the way. From 25W it's pavement all the way.

If you want the best trail dog, grilled with chili and slaw you better come. Trails will be fine and there will be good fellowship during lunch and the rest stops you take. Good way to see the other side of the mountain. It's unbelievable the way it changes in such a short distance. We have the best of both worlds Windrock and Royal Blue.
