Windrock / Coal Creek - Sat. Jan. 23rd

I'm looking to put together a ride this Saturday. Would like to do some Difficult trails unless others object. I'm not too picky.

Right now it's just me and rider. I'm gonna get a hold of some more guys, hopefully. The more the merrier.

Any takers?

It's probably an hour from Pigeon Forge. You probably pass Windrock's exit.

Click on the above link and it'll show you a map/directions.

Sounds like tnjeep03 is coming.

I'm thinking somewhere around 9am in the parking lot.

Anyone else going?

Sounds great!

You guys will probably have to show me to some new trails. Some how I always manage to do the same ones over and over..

And it's been 2 years since I've been up there.

Hey, I forgot that I have something to do Saturday morning so I'm not going to be able to make this one. I might be able to join you in the afternoon but not sure about that.

Quick question for you guys that have been there before. I'm going to the JJ there in april and I would like to have a short list of trails to try to sign up for before hand. If anybody has some suggestions on which ones to run I would really appreciate it.

Thanks, James

To be fair, I haven't been on the JJ, so I don't know which trails they regularly run. Having said that, before anyone gives you any advice on the subject, we'd need to know how your rig is built, and what your taste for adventure is. Both the JJs that I've been on have had rides to accommodate about every person's abilities, and Windrock and the surrounding areas (I understand that at least one ride from the Windrock JJ actually goes into Royal Blue) have all sorts of trails, from mild to extreme. So let us know what you're interested in, and those people familiar with Windrock can probably give you some ideas.

Okay, I'm driving an 05 unlimited rubicon with a 2" bds, 1.25 jks bl, 1" more mml and 285/75 cooper stt's on the stock moabs. I would rate my experience level at a little above noobie right now since I've only had this jeep for about 7 months now. I'm coming off a 7 year jeepless period so I'm thinking that most things should come back fairly quickly once I get going again. One somewhat important factor to keep in mind (if only for myself) is that the jeep is my daily driver, so not only does it need to get me back home afterward but back to work too. With that being said, I'm not driving 5 1/2 hours to drive through the woods and look at trees either. I'm not naive enough to think that I won't pick up some trail damage, but I'm not trying to guarantee it either. The jeep was bought with this in mind so I'll accept what happens with a smile regardless.

Hope this helps.

I'm thinking about this, I haven't been up there.

However, my Jeep is basically stock on 31's/open, tho it continues to impress, I don't want to be holding others up.

You should be able to do many of the difficult trails with that setup. I took my stock rubicon (on 31" all terrains) through alot of windrock when I first got it. Your not going to get up rattlerock but something tells me a JJ won't be doing that trail - lol. If its dry I wouldn't hesitate to do the hard stuff when you come. If its wet, well its going to be rough for everyone anyway. I was there this past weekend and it was slick like you couldn't believe - as in places you might drive up in 2wd dry were difficult locked front and rear in 4wd.

Although I think we've hijacked mudmonkey's thread a bit - LOL.

Sean is having some Jeep issues, so I'm not sure if he will be in.

I'll be there regardless, but I plan on not doing anything stupid (for once!).

Could we make it around 930?

Who all is in for sure?
