A few friends and I are looking to do a somewhat easy trail during the day and then go camping. Do you think that Hurricane creek would be good for us to do? None of us have lots of experience with off-roading and all of our vehicles are stock(a Cherokee, Durango, and Land Rover Defender). We would be driving from I-40 up the mountain. I would also very much appreciate to know about how long the trail takes. Thanks!

Live free. Stay wild.

yes, the trail can be done easily with a stock vehicle. The first time going up the trail, figure about an hour of trail time, maybe more if you're looking a lot. There are plenty of spots to set up camp along the way.

Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.

Agreed. And when I've gone, we always stop midtrail and eat but perfect trail for beginners and easy riding

Thank you guys very much. Looks like the date is set towards the end of May. Looks like a fun trail and apparently there are some great views at the top of the mountain.

I really enjoyed the view myself. I will post up what I took tomorrow.

Went up to Hurricane Creek on the 14th of April. Awesome trail, myself and a buddy went and took the family. We came out on Wesley Creek, followed it to Max Patch... If I would have turned left, Where would that have taken us? Will be going again soon I hope.

At the point you think the trail is done & you're on a nice dirt road again, you drive up maybe 2-3 minutes and see another 4wd trail on your left (If you miss the left turn off you'll end up going to the open cut/nice view before Wesley Creek).
Take the left trail mentioned above & about 10 minutes later it puts you up onto max patch road (kinda at a 4 way intersection).
Then:
1-If you go straight across max patch you come to Caldwell mtn rd & can get to spring creek, hot springs & leicester.
2-If you turn right, you'll go back towards Fines Creek rd
3-If you turn left, you can stay on Max Patch all the way to Del Rio, TN.
4-If you turn left, you can follow the signs & make your way back down to the Harmon's Den exit of I-40.
5-Best way is to go back down hurricane creek rd, its just more fun for a day of wheeling.

Thanks for the info. Had a great time over there.

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid people are full of confidence...

Does anyone know of any camping sites up near the harmon den area where hurricane creek road comes out at? I've been having trouble finding some online. I wouldn't really mind if we had to hike in a few miles, but if you have found any on websites or camped at some just let me know. Thanks!
