I'm new to trail riding (klr 250) and am wondering if it's too risky to go alone on one of urwharies trails. I have been told to ride with a partner but I don't know anyone who rides. If I go alone, is it reasonable that there would be enough riders out there to help if I got stuck? Any insight is appreciated.

Dont do it alone...please. Getting stuck is the least of your worries.
A simple/survivable crash could turn into something much much worse without a buddy with you.
3 is preferable. One to stay with the downed rider, and one to go get help.
If you must ride alone, be sure to have a whistle attached to your chest protector. If you end up hurt down in a ditch it could save your life.
