Visit some bordering cities around Charlotte that aren't as populated (aka where there is undeveloped land). Ask the city planners (or transportation development) there for a list of their class VI roads and which ones are off limits. Find the entrances for the ones that aren't off limits and stay away from any that are posted or gated. Explore the other ones and see if you find any fun obstacles. www.treadlightly.com

If you ever come by wilmington give me a pm before you do. I'll show you some completely legal fun out here.

Tellico and URE are great places to play but require a bit of traveling.

Gulchesorvpark.com is in Laurens SC. Its not too far fron Charlotte and is a great place to ride.

Their is a not-so-offroad trail called the horsepasture trail that overlooks Lake Jocassee in upstate SC. Its not very tough riding but its very scenic and a goodday trip.

Jeeptillidie,

Can you give a little more detail on Horse Pasture? I've had several people tell me to go up there.

Check out this link.

It tells a little bit about the area and how to get there. I highly recommend it. Most can be done in 2wd but there is a few steep hills and a small creek crossing that you may want to use 4wd in.

Sure. Lots. Check out NC4x4.com for some upcoming rides and events. There's a big event this weekend at "The Farm", which is private land near Lincolnton. There's always Tellico and Uwharrie. Callalentee is in Mtn City, TN.

Ill be completely honest with you. That trail is really nothing more than a gravel road that rides across the top of the mountains. It has a couple of really nice overlooks but as far as wheeling goes I could make it through 95% of it with my girlfriends Jetta. We need to get to Gulches. That place is awesome.

As far as details I think back in years past before I made it up there it was pretty much a very primitive mountain road with a few rocks and maybe some challenges here and there but by the time I made it up there it was nothing more than a gravel road for 95% of the way. Granted their are a couple of spots where you can look down on Lake Jocassee that are absolutely beautiful but as far as wheeling is concerned the only spot that was even a small challenge was about the last half of a mile that lead you down the mountain to where you could get in the lake and swim. And even when I was there they had heavy equipment out there that was working the dirt so I can only suspect that even that part is probably graveled now. I do remember one shallow water crossing and a couple of rocks but nothing was impassible by a yugo. I would recommend the trail to a person that is brand new to wheeling and just wants to go out and figure out how everything works and how a Jeep handles in an "off-road" situation. IMO the trail is very useful for that.
