I am currently looking for places to take my Jeep in the local area. I have seen many Cherokee's & Wranglers in my area and wondering where everyone goes. I purchased my Jeep in the beginning of February and have been modding so I could have a little fun. I have been told there are many great areas around me... but no one knows the locations. Any help on links to websites or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank You. -John

I could have sworn I responded here, but I think the site took a dump while it was posting. Anyway, Let me try this again.

Your best bet is probably Rausch Creek. Paragon is not much futher, but is currently closed. I dont believe there are many nat. forests nearby you, but I could be wrong.

here's the link to the park...

http://www.rauschcreekoffroadpark.org/

Our club is heading there the last weeken in Dec. Not sure of the exact levels we're planning on running, but there's usually a group for all comfort levels. Check out the thread if you're interested, and feel free to register on the site.

I will definitely have to jump on the forums. I will be leaving next Thursday for a few weeks to Alaska , so I will have to try and meet up with some people when I get back. Thanks for the info on Rausch & Sira4x4. -Johnny

John it's Adrian, if you find something or are planning on something let me know. I'll make the trip up. Did you ever get those tires on yet?
