This sounds a lot like two years ago. From their Facebook page.

Moto Mountain Park, ATV Park

Due to the tracks being washed out from all of the rain, we will now be opening Friday, July 14. Book your 2 night cabin rental today! Inbox us for details.

In the same post some local folks have reported seeing a lot of trail work and parking lot activity too though. Hard to get a read on what's legit and what isn't. One thing is for sure, their business sense hasn't improved one bit! ::duh:: ::rotf::

I would be happy to see them open back up. More riding places is a good thing. It's also only 45 mins away from me, so would be nice for some half day rides.

I hope this is true but also consider that their Facebook page could have been hacked.

Regardless of whether they open again or not, their public relations is quite possibly the crappiest I've ever seen. How hard is it to update a website? Moto Mountain is practically in my backyard, but I'll gladly drive farther and give Paul and Highland Park my money.

Well i just looked on their FB page, and nothing about opening on what "2" days. Nothing to sir up business for such an important event. I believe you have a better chance of seeing a Bigfoot than getting a honest, or even a answer from the MM folks. I would say we have been duped again, but first we would have to fall for the BS story right?

Just saw on FB that it will be July 28th before they open now. According to the post, based on input from test riders, they need to do some more work.

I guess time will tell ::popcorn::

Need someone to roll up there and give us some feedback. I really hope it opens back up, but I doubt it.

Okay here is your confirmation 100%. First off I don't have my glasses so I am voice texting on my telephone so if there's any punctuation or sentence errors please forgive me. My phone doesn't always understand Southern. So I live in Calhoun which is only a 30-minute ride to Moto Mountain. On the way home from work I figured it'd be a good reason to take my adventure bike out that way to see exactly what's up. Here's the Scoop just from observation. Yes the big towers at Overlook the mud pit in the parking lot have had the top part stain and has some wood around. There really are no bulldozer mark from where any work has been done. There are plenty of bush hog tracks but that's about it. Just observing from the road all the AP and seat rails or overgrown they're still visibly there but very overgrown. The parking lot looks like abandon and has water ruts everywhere. Now here's the real kik and why the truth really comes out. The whole time I was up there I can hear a four wheeler engine running. As I was leaving sure enough I spotted a good old boy out trespass riding. Offline him over the quiz him on the situation and the current condition of the trails out. He was a local and only lived right down the road as you come off the main road. His four wheeler was one of those that you would find in the yard sale it will speed up he had no helmet on hat on backwards and a big chew and. Jobs in his late twenties real nice real honest but here was his. None absolutely none of the trails have been worked on everything is overgrown and everything the right side of the road is so washed-out you can hardly write it even on a four wheeler. They said yes people have been up there working on that deck months ago or a couple weeks ago but other than that no work has been done. So with that unless they're planning on bringing in the Army Corps of Engineers for the next two weeks Moto Mountain will not be opening anytime soon or if. I hope this debunks the rumor and put this thing to rest because it's not happening gentlemen. I hope this report this to everyone's satisfaction and Highland Park still number one.
