Few questions about Uwharrie..

I'm planning on making a camping trip to Uwharrie late November/early Decemeber w/ my girlfriend for a weekend of wheeling. I'm trying to gather some info for some stuff as I've never been to an OHV park so I've got some questions...

First off, what is the address I should look at to get to the OHV park? Like what should I put into Google Maps to find the place?

Since we're not going in a huge group of people, do I just drive the trails myself solo or does everyone there wait and have a guide take a lot of people through at once?

As it will be freezing cold out, what are some recommended hotels nearby to stay the night at?

My Jeep has a 3" FT lift and 33" TSL radials and that's pretty much it, is there anything else that is a necessity to have or bring along before we go? I don't want to take the bypass around every obstacle there.

And one last thing I wanted to know was are there any good scenic areas worth seeing while there?

Any comments are appreciated

My one recomendation to you is to go to the outpost(gas station right there) in the morning before you go wheeling. There are always plenty of people there getting their groups together, airing down their tires and stuff. Find a group to tag along with. Most people dont mind having others joing their group. If you do wait til December to go, the last day to go wheeling is Dec 14th because they close the trails at 8:00 am on the 15th.

The town of Troy is about a 20 minute drive from the trails so that would be your best bet for a hotel. I would say camping adds to the experience. There are some pretty nice campsites at uwharrie that have bathrooms close and running water and everything.

You can go by yourself if you want but cell phone receptions isn't very good so if something goes wrong with your rig then it may be a little while before someone else drives by to help you out so it may be better to meet up with someone.

When you get there you will have to stop by a one of the plases that sells passes and buy one and make sure to get a map. You should easily be able to do all of the easy and even medium trails there so just start easy and move up. I have 31's on a 3.5" lift and i've done every trail there without too many problems.

Uwharrie isn't really like a "park". It's more of just a bunch of trails (horse trails, hiking trails, dirt roads) so it's just kinda get there and find on the map where you want to try and just go.

The outpost is a good place to start, gas up, get a pass and a map. It's right past reservation road if your comming from the town of Troy on Hwy 109. Just check out google maps and look up troy NC and follow 109 up to where it says uwharrie.

Good luck man and hope you have fun, I always have and you may even see me there

-Erik <---- has also stayed at the Days inn right at the hwy, nice place and not that much more expensive, but it's a farther drive....

i just got back last night from spending the weekend there, i dont know about hotels because we camped, but i had a blast, i have a 2 inch lift and ran my 32" ssr's aired down to about 15, and did great, i made it up almost everything, of course theres some parts that you can choose a line that is really hard but are very easy to get around, be sure to get a map and understand it, i was following my friend who had studied the map so i didnt think twice about where we were going,
it was very dry this past weekend, and if it rains every thing gets alot harder,

Bring everything you can possibly think of to fix a breakdown. I have been to URE twice and both times have experienced breakdowns on rigs that were simple but put us out until they were fixed. Bring a good assortment of simple hand tools and a spare tire. A jeep on 33's can easily make every trail there.

So did I and the tires were slick as owl ****! I think Daniel would definitely be a good challenge on 30's though.

You may want to invest in a small air compressor. I was the one who got the flat on the trip and you are miles from anywhere when you are on the trails. I would also recommend a plug kit, that is what got me home...

Tools. Just bring every tool you think you wont need. And bring a gallon of water. It makes fixing dirty crap a lot easier.
