Bill & Ted's excellent adventure #3, WNC/East TN. 3-24-12

This trip will be to rich mtn trail near Hot Springs. We'll meet at Weaverville bojangles & leave around 8:30, it takes several hours to complete just like hurricane creek did. This trail is moderate but will have a few technical areas...We've got the stock jk stuck here in 2 different spots. Stock jeeps will make it through with a little coaching. As always we will stop & have our hot dog lunch.

Edit=our pics of this ride are on p13 thru p15 of this thread.


Don't breed em' if you can't feed em'.

Rich mtn trail is between Marshall & Hot Springs. Trail number 422A, it skirts NC & TN border & also has another road that takes you to a fire tower.

How technical is technical? lol If the wife and kids dont come i may try to bring the TJ, but dont want to rip the fenders off quite yet! lol it only has a 1.25" BL on it now with 33's...the rest is stock suspension.

Otherwise, count me as a maybe!

*note to self* go ahead and put in new rear locker!

You will have areas that flex the suspension fully, but a stock jeep could do the whole trail. I will run 90% of the trail in 2wd low range, although i have a locker in the rear.

uhmmm....yeah...can't full flex with it, tires mash into the fenders, i ran it thru a ditch after the BL and i thought i was gonna rip off the left rear as it was, and i'm pretty sure she was nowhere near full flex.
