Trail 2 is fun, so is 22, The windmills are awsome, Trail 3 denied me last time. It was so icy I slid all over the place. Great place. A little pricy on admission though

Yep a little pricey. If I remember right it was $50 for a 4 day pass.
Per person! It cost me $100 to wheel for 4 days and my wife does not even drive.

Go to Tellico instead.CC has gone down hill in the last several years.A lot of the jeep trails are now gravel roads and the rest are just boring.There are a few trails that are nice,but not worth the $$.

16, 15, 3 are all fun

I would recommend at least 1 locker if it is dry and 2 if its wet

I always got hung up on my skid plate with 33"s and 2.5 lift I feel like 35s would have served me perfect. Or a nice breakover angle with a tummy tuck

I've done 3, 2, 22, 15 and 16 all on 33's with a 3" BL and no lockers and have had no problems except for the one time when my 4WD failed on me and i had to get pulled the rest of the way up 3. Other than that you should have no problems. It is pricey, but is a nice place to ride IMO. There are some tougher trails too if you have the equipment. When ya going? Always looking for someone to wheel with.

I heard tellico is a little hardcore for ppl on anything under 35's?...but i wouldn't mind checking it out seeing how i do things @ Uwharrie that ppl don't think my jeep would even get close to doing lol. (it could just be my determination idk)

Not to sure when I'm going yet gotta get the money together...and the rest of my guys...but I'd definitely wheel with you seeing how you know the area pretty well and we are always wheeling with random ppl it should work out well

I've done Tellico, but because lift and being a GC I do use some of the by-passes. I also have been to River Rock and must use some by-passes. But riding anything is better than nothing.

Yeah I don't think windrock should be skipped. Besides Tellico is closed right now. Sure there are some easier trails at windrock but there are also some much harder trails. I think Rattlerock is about the hardest trail around. I know it used to be rough. Then again you better know your stuff if you hit the harder trails at tellico. From your setup you will have fun at both places.

What turner said.


All of the trails up there (except for the extreme ones) can be done with a stock vehicle if you pick the right lines. Turner, JamJeeper, and myself drove to the base of gaurdrail from trail 4 which wasnt really a problem besides being a very slick uphill grind.

Another way is to sit on the pot, reach down and grip the bowl with both hands, and push against the floor with your feet.
