Coal Creek Info

I was wondering if there was many easy trails. I mean for a stock tj with young kids in it. I do not want any thing that may leave me stranded or hurt anyone. I am looking for somewhat smooth dirt roads if you know what I mean. I do not want to waste my time driving up there (4+ hours) if there is not many easy trails. Also I heard about the big "windmills" that are used for generating power. Are these easily accessible? What is the scenery like? Thanks for any insight you may have.

If you want something thats easy, close, great views, safe for kids and stock jeep then check out the horsepasture trail near Lake Jocassee.

The "easy" trails are not much more than gravel roads up at Windrock, and the scenery is fantastic. You can just about drive right up to the base of the wind mills. A stock Jeep can generally do some of the moderate trails as well without much difficulty.
