3 Day long South East Trail - Best Trails In the South East

Small life story...So I just moved to Jacksonville, FL. For the past 6 or so years I lived in Northern Arizona and enjoyed Sedona and the Grand Canyon. I was spoiled. Just spoiled. Now in Jacksonville I have met up with a few outstanding gentlemen with a need to do something adventurous.

We have all heard of the Rubicon Trail and so many other timeless trails in the southwest. Now that Tellico is closed what great trails are there in the South East? We are looking for something within a days drive (10hours) from Jacksonville and will provide Point A and Point B. A trail that will push our slightly modified stock jeeps to the limits but not destroy our daily drivers.

In a perfect world the trail would be a days drive away and provide 3 to 4 days of great wheeling and breath taking views.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. We are looking to hit the trail as soon as 3 months to 1 year from now.

There really isn't any "trails" like that since the closure of Tellico. There are many great offroad parks within that amount of driving you're willing to do tho. Here is a list of some of the parks that I know about in the SE.

Choccolocco Mountain ORP- Jacksonville, AL
Mountainside ORP- Gadsden, AL
River Rock- Milledgeville, GA
Morris Mountain ORP- Heflin, AL
Gray Rock ORP- Mount Olive, AL
Golden Mountain ORP- Sparta, TN
Coal Creek (Windrock)- Oliver Springs, TN
Wooly's ORP- Lynnville, TN
Wheelin in the Country- Summertown, TN
Durham Town- Union Point, GA
Gulches ORP- Laurens, SC

Harlan Kentucky, 7000 acre park .
Wilderness trail 9000 acre park that's about 40 minutes from Harlan.
Some steep hillclimbs at both. Some mud. Rocky areas to play. Some of the most beautiful land any where! You can ride for days without hitting the same trail twice. Look either up on the net.
