Two ways around the big hill. Yes the Carto is worth it
Good to know on the big hill and Carto.

Last year I came from Murfreesboro (middle Tennessee), down through Muscle Shoals, and turned onto Hawk Pride Mountain Road from Highway 72. Assuming that is the main way in (GPS guided), what are the other ways around?

From Hwy 72, 1/2 mile + past the Harley Davidson shop turn south on Frankfort Rd, aprox 5-6 miles turn right onto New Bethel Rd. HPO is approx 3 miles on left....New Bethel Rd and Hawk pride Mtn Rd is the same road. There is a hill to climb but not near as bad.

Thanks to both of you for this information. That's the route I'll take in and out from the park with the trailer in tow.

I followed John in to the park once. I didn’t know about the hill. He was driving like a crazy person. I’m like this dude is flying. Then we hit the hill we drag races to the top, I was in my older work truck I think we were doing 13 at the top

If driving in from Mississippi take 247 and if driving in from Muscle Shoals take Frankfort Rd.

Is the bridge still out on Frankfurt road? The one that got washed out from the rain in February.

No, the bridge is finished and the road is newly paved.
Good deal on the bridge info! Got everything but food and clothes packed and ready to head down to Hawk Pride either late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

Had a blast down at RBD. Enjoyed seeing all the out of state friends and meeting some new ones/ Took a ton of pictures so will get some posted up later this week.

Thanks to Ricky/Speeding for all the work involved on putting together this annual event.

Didn't bump into you on Friday, but saw the Terminator buggy on Friday morning with one driver/owner, and saw it again on Saturday morning with a different driver/owner.

We had a rv spot for the weekend, which was thankfully hard packed dirt/gravel so getting out Sunday morning was easy. However, the rv spots right across from us, it was that red clay mud you mentioned.
