Antartic Circle Trail

Average Rating:    (4.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

What trail? All I saw was white stuff everywhere. Everything was white, even the wildlife. Foxes, Bears, Seals, damn they should've called this place the "White Pole"....I strapped on my water, I mean "ice" pack and headed out to wherever. I soon passed whatever it was (white colored) and took a hard left. Continued on for about 6" and then fell over from sheer exhaustion....My total ride was about 3 feet. I figured out later that my bike had literally shattered underneath me just as soon as I sat down on the seat......

Summary:
I've ridden a lot of trails (Moab,Fisher creek, Mammoth, Candyland, Middle Shire, Oregon trail) but this is the slickest one yet. It makes Porcupine Rim look like a string of neon gummi bears. It was difficult, but I think it would be better doing it clockwise I don't recommend, however, taking a newcomer. My girlfriend got disoriented, and she got tired of eating seal blubber after day 22. She never rides without a pump now, and we laugh about it.

Recommended Route:
I prefer to start from the Russian research station because their vodka is fresher. Otherwise, Start at the big iceberg just as the other reviewer states.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Odin's Hammer is good. So is Hell hole; although it tends to be a bit warm in the winter. Oak tree shoot is a classic that should not be missed if you're in the area.

Summary:
You know I want to have a few words with who ever wrote this trail into this website!!!! I have spent thousands of dollars on clothes and gear not to mention the rescues trying to find this damn trail. Every week I fly out from west palm beach Florida in search of this elusive trail. I have lost most of my toes and left quadrant of my upper lip due to frost bite but that comes with the territory when your a bad ass adventure rider like me and my floriduh pals. We made the x-terra commercials!!!!! I left my cooler there last time, If anybody who goes there finds it could they set it next to the pole so I know where to find it. Thanks anyway I think I saw a seal last time but im not sure, the blindness sets in quickly when you leave your f-n goggles on the seat of the x-terra (that got stuck ten feet off the friggin road and I had to pawn that cutesie wootsie first aid pack to an eskimo so I could get some real bandadges for my friggin hands/stumps I gnarled up while tryin to dig out the stupid icon of adventure. Dip shi-s like myself think this truck makes em brian friggin lopes!!!!!
Well im glad to say that I made it back to florida where the sun is shining and the stumps look like there gonna have to come off as well due to the fact that after I got the bandadges from the eskimo he wrapped them up for me and dipped em in water and hit me over the head with a fish, hit the 4X4 button in the Xterra stole it and left me for dead with frozen bloody stumps to stain the ice.
I sold the Xterra and bought a F-350 and a can of copenhagen bought a cowboy hat and im lookin for the bullride review website I think it is a little cheaper and safer.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
I love this trail, it has something for everyone. Yeah the snow, man-eating animals and ice can be bothersome, but hey, it was easy everyone would do it, right? My dogs really like it too. M. Quinn

Recommended Route:
Same as above. Try to hit this trail when the sun is out almost 24/7. Dress warm.
