Richland Rd is just as good as Uwharrie imo, and it is free and right by Brown Mtn. Two long trails for the price of one is worth it for me.
Richland road- is that just some road that's on the same road as BM? I've been to BM once before on dirtbikes and id say that ill be happy offroading no matter what. I've got stock jeeps going with me and wanted to do something easy for the first timers. Still planning on leaving lkn/charlotte about 9 and getting there around 11(1hour 15 minutes plus breakfast or so) my name Is Adam and feel free to text me if you'd like to join the convoy 7042400922. This is all of out first trip to go anywhere offroading so this will be a learning experience! See you there

It is off of 321, instead of turning left at that stoplight on 321 and getting on the back two lane roads towards Brown Mtn you just keep going straight and it is on the right after you pass the next gas station, before you get into Blowing Rock. I'll try to make it, depends on what the family has going on that day.

You have to pay at brown mountain... if it's even open.

I've been to brown mountain on both atvs and my old xj. It's a lot of fun on an atv, but compared to other trails that are closer and FREE it sucks.

The first pictures were on trails 1 and 8 I think. The other pictures are from Richland.

I've run all of Brown Mtn in a 4wd truck (except for one really steep hill.) Once you get past the legal part, it's pretty good. Don't know why they don't let Jeeps and 4wd trucks on the rest of the mountain, as they fit just fine. Now I did this over 10 years ago, and basically drove past the sign at the end of trail 1 saying no Jeeps allowed past this point and by the time I realized what I did I was in too far to bother turning around. If you go for the legal section, well that just isn't any fun and is over really quick. It's much more fun to explore the forest service roads off Wilson Creek Gorge.

If while exploring the area you come across the following situation, tell me where it is, as I can't remember. Anyway, you go down a dirt road. You get to a giant concrete paved bridge over a creek/river. If you cross the bridge it turns back to a dirt road, then quickly turns into a nice paved road with giant stone blocks along side the road, placed nicely as if put there by stonemasons. After a few miles the road turns back to dirt and ends. I call it the bridge to nowhere, and I can't remember where it is. Might be in the Boone area, might be in the Murphy area.

Looks like you guys had a great time. I tried to talk my buddy into going, but he didn't want to go, and I had some other stuff to do anyway.

was a great time! nothing broke, and the trail took around 3 and a half hours with minor stops to complete. was only 9 miles total to the top and back but creeping up and creeping down kept us around 3 miles an hour.
