Uwharrie is a good place to learn. I've been twice so far.

Uwharrie is good. You pay $5 and get to ride the trails all day. I believe it is open til early December this year.

Given you userID, it looks like you are right up our alley. Check out our group for trail rides. We have one on Monday that is stock friendly.

Check the link in my signature.

This may sound lame, but I don't Facebook (I used my wife's account to see the group profile). Does your group have any rides coming up? Just got my JKU back with 2.5" lift, 35s and new gear ratio. Itching to take it out, but not looking to trash it in the process. My buddy has a Yota with small lift who is looking to ride as well. Both of us are in Charlotte. Thanks.

Compound Offroad Park in Chester, SC (~45 min from Charlotte) was open today and tomorrow (Jan 4 and 5, 2014). It is not open every weekend, but was a popular place. The trails were easy to moderate. The mud section started off OK, then got really sloppy. I run 315/70/R17 Duratracs and got around OK, but stayed away from the deep mud. Pics uploaded. GreenMonster - I figured out how to upload to a post, but still not the PM.

I will be making it to a DDOR event some day. If you know Tyler Knaup, he's one of the officers in our club.

Haha it has been a while since he went on a ride. Hell, I've been 3 times in a month, all with club guys. He wasn't at any of them.
