The Daniel Boone Trailblazers ATV Club was formed in the summer of 2006. Based in the beautiful Eastern Kentucky Mountains in Hyden, Kentucky, the Trailblazers club not only includes local 4wheeling fans but 4wheeling fanatics from across the United States in over 20 states!! With the motto "IN MUD WE TRUST!!!", you can count on having a great ride when you ride with the Trailblazers. As the Trailblazers are offiicial partners with the USFS Redbird Ranger District we are extremely proud of our volunteer work in helping with the maintenance and litter control that we do to help everyone maintain safe riding. All club members (up to 45) can receive a free annual pass after 16 hours of volunteer work for The Redbird Crest Trails. This is a 40 dollar savings to ride anytime you want!!!
With the goal of experiencing a carefree, scenic adventure, riding with the Trailblazers means that you must abide by the KY Laws which means you must abide by all the Kentucky ATV Laws and if you do not know those, just ask. For example, You must wear a helmet when riding public riding areas as well as other statutes and such. When you ride on an official Trailblazers Club Ride, you must abide by all of these before you can have the adventure you will be talking about until your next trip down.
With such events as the the Trailblazers Spring Jamboree 2007 which was listed in ATV Magazine summer addition as the top pick for Best Events of the Summer for SE United States!!! Again, the Trailblazers are also very proud of being partners with the United States Forest Service by volunteering in the upkeep of the Redbird Crest Trails which is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest. With great pride, The Trailblazers have proudly blazed a trail for other ATV Clubs throughout the nation as well as here at home, by being the 1st ATV Club to partner with the U.S. Forest Service, Daniel Boone National Forest in efforts of safeguarding safe, recreational OHV riding for the all ATV, motorcycle enthusiasts, etc that frequent the trail system 365 days a year with record number visitors every year.
As well, the new RZRs are now allowed to ride the Redbird Crest Trails; however, no other side x sides are that we are aware of except for those that are involved in Trailblazers Club Clean Up rides which we will be doing more often than we thought previously as we have a new goal for our club......Let's Keep Our Trails Free of Litter and safe for others while we just ride, ride, and ride some more; of course, we will be visiting riding areas all over and attending other club's events, fundraisers, and more.
