Daniel Boone National Forest?

Anyone know where some trailheads are in the southern Stearns Region? I drove down 92 west from Williamsburg all the way to hwy 27 and didn't see a single sign that I was even in a national forest.

TIA,
Dave

Hi Dotsun...I've been wanting to do some trails up there also. Jeep Jamboree recently had an event there so maybe you can get some info from them?

There are plenty of trails in mccreary county. coming across hey 92 u passed a road called jellico creek there is a place about 4 miles down that road called polley spring. there are a lot of trails there. U can take the One trail threw Polly and it will bring u out in tn at a place called hole in the earth it's a great ride.there are many places to ride near steams. If any one ever wants to meet up and ride just leave me message. Chris

How hard are the trails out polly creek? Can a stock TJ do it or will it require lift and bigger tires? Don't have a lot of experience, but would love to look into the trails in DBNF. There looks to be several up around the Cumberland Falls area going back towards Laurel Lake as well.

Yeah the National park website has maps of the three area's that show what trails allow licensed vehicles, vehicles less than 50", etc. At least they're still allowing some riding. I'm not familiar with the trails, but once the weather get's better and things dry up a bit I want to go check some of the ones out down around Hollyhill.

There are also some good ones in the London district that are close by. I'm running stock (no lockers, A/T tires, no lift) so don't want extreme. Of course, after a trip or two the bug might bite for a light build.

Well, I'm definetly gonna make a few trips down through there once it warms a bit and dries up a bit. I'm thinking really hard about lifting my TJ a couple inches and goint to 32s, but there is no way I'm going to 35s.

Are many people using the trails now. I know a lot of people think it's off limits now.

Well, I think I'm going to install a 2" BB in a couple of weeks. I put new tires on today and went with the 31x10.50-15 GY Authority's from wally world. I know how adicting these things can get, but I can't go overboard on lifting this because it is a daily driver. I think the BB with the 31's will give me quite a bit of increase capabilities compared to where it started. Now I won't rule out a 44 rear axle and locker in the future, but not going above the 2".

I only have a 2.5 inch lift on mine right now but soon to be a soa lift mine is a daily driver to only gets about 10 mpg but I work about 5 miles from the house so it's not 2 bad but 2 inches or lift and 31 should be plenty enough
