I used to live in Boone when I went to ASU and a good ride is up to the Firetower. Drive downtown Boone and from W King street take Water st to Junaluska rd. Follow Junaluska rd for a bit until you get to Firetower rd and make a left onto Firetower. This road is paved and then turns to dirt and winds up a good ways to the actual firetower. The views there are amazing and worth watching a sunset there. The road was fine for any 4x4 years back and I doubt it is worse today. Its been 10 years since I went up there though. There are or were more intense trails off of the Firetower Rd on the way up but at the time were not for stock 4x4s. Let me know if you go up there it would be good to see pics now since I live in Denver now.

Thanks. I will definitely check that one out... Sounds like it's exactly what I'm looking for. I have neither rock rails nor offroad tires so I'm not looking for anything really treacherous. Thanks for the info. Will let you know...
Currently go to ASU and I suggest not going to Firetower. The electric company has put up a wire about halfway up the trail to prevent anyone from going all the way to the actual tower. You could still go, but you would have about 1/2 mile of trail and then you would be walking the rest of the way to the scenic part.
I want to join this as well.. Though i will not be there till the 10th of jan. This next weekend I'm installing my 3" iro kit on my wj so that will be the real chance to test her out... Ill be moving to ft bragg.. How far is that from boone..?
