Well the other guy's comment was a joke, but I think you are serious.

The forest ride starts in the town of Montgomery. Then goes to Anderson.

I would say route 149 is pretty smooth. 3090 (the main attraction) has good and bad days. My first few times out there, I almost stopped going all together because of all the sand and dirt. Lately though, it has been pretty good.

One time, I was out there... it began getting cloudy... and then I realized it was a sort of sand storm. As we kept going, we came upon a ****ing dump truck full of sand WITH NO TOP and it was just shedding constant sand. I said few cuss words.

Other than those times, it really is quite nice. Lately it has been suicidal birds trying to take me out.

Plenty of people go down on 3090. You just have to swallow your pride and take it slower than you think you should.

The largest danger of 3090 isn't sand, dirt, debris, dogs, birds, cars, or slippery surface. It is people riding to their max on an unforgiving road.

If you ride it at maybe 75% of your ability, 3090 is quite safe.

Almost any nice day I am willing to go out and lead ya thru it if you meet me in Montgomery. Once you get to montgomery, the ride is pretty fun the rest of the way.
