It's not the Taj Mahal, but relatively inexpensive (about $65/night) and there is probably a free trail pass deal still in effect that'll save ya $10/day. It's 5 minutes from the trailhead. There's decent pub fare across the street from the motel or by the trails at The Pub Outback.
We stayed at the Kirby Ridge Log Cabin last summer. The place was nice, it is on the Burke Mountain side of KT, it is only a short ride over to the Darling Hill side (where Sidewinder is).
There is another new trail that is near Sidewinder called Tap -n- Die, also very nice, as is Tody's Tour. Lots of great riding, hope you have better luck than we did 10 days ago with the weather - we had 2 out of 3 days of downpours
They have been getting alot of rain up there. Allamuchy Joe and I just got back from a 10 day vacation to VT, NH, MA - it poured 6 out of 10 days . It seems like they are in a really bad weather pattern, horrific thunder/lightening/hail with buckets of rain.
We were talking to a guy staying a few campsites from us at KT. The day we decided the weather was to dicey he rode...had a lightening strike about 100 yards from him :scared: way to close for me !
