OHV Area Information

The Royal Blue, Sundquist, New River, and Tackett Creek OHV areas consist of over 200,000 acres and is managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Safety Orange apparel is required on the head and chest of each rider during hunting season, which runs from the first weekend of October until the 2nd weekend of January. Safety hats and vests can be purchased from our General Store.

TWRA requires that helmets be worn by children under the age of 18 while riding. Rock Ridge Resort staff will enforce the use of helmets for children on the resort grounds. Children should only operate age appropriate machines and the resort does not allow children to cruise the campground. Safety is paramount on the trail system and we strongly suggest the use of helmets for everyone.

Do Not Litter! We love our mountains and want generations to come to have access to the North Cumberland OHV Area. To ensure this please pack out any trash or other litter that you pack in.
