Not in the area anymore, but the Talladega National Forest had some trails back when I went to college. War Eagle!

Auburn rides

Sorry to revive an older thread.
New to jeeps. Looking for places for wife and I to ride on the weekends. Have a fairly stock '80 CJ5(for now).

This is from an older thread from a month or so ago, but we'll probably do it again.

Quote:
We just bought a new 09 4 dr. Sahara to use as a tow car behind the motor home, but like to get off road now and then too. We've only had it since mid July and I've been working on it a little to get it ready to tow, but we've taken it up to the Talledega Nat'l Forest a couple of times and driven what is called on the maps "Skyline Drive" or FS 600-1. It was interesting what with being in a brand new stock Jeep. It's mostly an old logging road that hasn't been maintained in a looong time. Several portions are pretty washed out, especially on slopes, but some of the flatter portions are good. It took us about 2 hours to drive 5 miles or so, but we stopped a couple of times to admire the view and have a snack. That was on the southern part of the drive, south west of Hwy 77.

Take County road 7 north out of Goodwater to Hwy 148. Turn left on 148 and go about a half mile and Skyline drive will be on your right. You can see remnants of rutted asphalt on the slope. If you go just a hundred feet or so farther, you will turn onto a good gravel road. That isn't the one you want, though it is a nice drive.

You will come out on Hwy 77 just north of County road 209, or Horns Lake road. If you want to do the rest of Skyline, take Horns Lake road east to Chandler Springs road, then find where Skyline Drive turns off to the right about a mile up the road, just after you cross a bridge over Talledega Creek. You will eventually come out on the Talledega Scenic Hwy and you can go where you will from there. We worked our way back to Ashville on mostly dirt roads then got on 77 to come back to Opelika. There are a lot of FS roads up there, most of them in MUCH better shape than Skyline Drive. It did give me a chance to try out low range though, mostly for speed control. It's not super challenging given that I got through there without any scratches or dings but you will need the ground clearance of the Jeep and if you don't use low range you're either going to wear out the brakes or get thrown out of the seat. Some deep gullies to cross in there.

This road was in my GPS (Garmin), btw.
We're in Land Between the Lakes in TN and KY right now, and spent a few hours in Turkey Bay OHV area today. Good fun, even in a new stock Sahara!

Gentlemen, there are TONS of places to ride within an hour and a half of you guys. As mentioned, the Talladega National Forrest has lots of places to wheel, but most are fire roads. There is also www.grayrockorv.com, www.choccoloccomountain.com, www.morrismountainorv.com. I have not been to Gray Rock but have heard good things about it. I have been to both Morris and Choccolocco and can attest to their awesomeness. I realize that they are about 2 hrs or so from Auburn, but SO worth it. Heck, you could even make it a weekend trip as both areas have primitive camping and Choccolocco is literally 3 minutes from Jacksonville, which has plenty of great restaurants, hotels, and gas stations. Also home of JSU which has tons of hot college chicks and a fair share of college bars! Coming from big time Auburn University, JSU might not seem like it has much to offer, but not a bad time!
