  Cheaha Trail Ride
May 05 - 06, 2018
This is the second year of adventure taking a two-day trail-ride from Alexander City to Cheaha State Park. We leave on Saturday morning travelling the roughly 90 miles to Cheaha State Park. We spend the night at the Park with camping, campfires, etc. and do a return trip on Sunday but by a different and perhaps a bit more challenging route. Vehicle reliability is highly recommended, however we will help get you home if needed.

This springtime event hosted by Gary and Melissa Poe and Alan and Michael Roberts has developed into a bit of a specialty event for those of us who like to see and use our HMV’s in their more natural elements…mud, dust, water, …you know the FUN stuff. Plan for this one and get it on your calendar. If you’re up to it.
This is a stop of our “Dixie Division MVC Tours Alabama 2018” events for this year.

Sponsored by the Krewe de Tigris this is the second year of this event and it was a lot of fun last year with outstanding public support. We decorate in the official military Mardi Gras themes and have beads to throw with the occasional squad of hand propelled “paratrooper” green army men. A lot of fun and great exposure for our efforts to support our military in a unique way.
