I do have a small area of woods that I ride in, which takes only 10 minutes to walk through, lol! !
I have about 15 miles of honest bush trails. I add alot more distance by running long the edge of fields to other bushes. Some very high hills, a deep swamp with nice sandy trails running through it. A lake I can ride around.
I also have unlimited roads I can run.
About 5 miles away is the city and I trailer to the large maul and unload in a quiet corner and then again unlimited mileage over grass. Walking trials, grass boulevards, parks, hydro right of ways, university, you name it you can access it all over grass.
I also love construction areas. Hundreds of acres of cleared land with nothing growing, lots of wash outs to manuver, steep piles of dirt to crawl over, streams to drink from. Etc etc
Then come winter the snowmobile trails run about 1/2 mile from the barn so I jump on one of them and can go forever.
No I live in a very high densly populated area but the riding is unlimited.
Just use you imagination.
I have had new riding partners not sleep at night knowing I am going to be asking something from them that scares the crap out of them but before long nothing bothers them and they go anywhere I ask.
