Richland Rd area this Saturday?

I wonder how sloppy it will be with all this rain? I've never been there, but anyone wanna head up to the Brown Mtn/Richland Rd area north of Hickory on Saturday? I am itchin to ride some trails and don't feel like going to URE. Sounds like Richland isn't too difficult and more of a moderate to easy road. Nothing hardcore, just a little something different ya know.

Sweet. I'm assuming you've run this area before? What can we expect? If you have another spot that you'd think would be better I'm game. There's a 30 percent chance of rain on Saturday, but hell there's been a 30 percent chance the last month I guess. What time you want to meet up and where? I can come up early if you're good with that so maybe we can dodge an afternoon storm.

It's not bad at all. I have a TJ o 33s, open difs, and do the trail just fine. There are a couple playgrounds with tougher climbs and mud pits.

I don't think my Jeep could handle any more. It needs to recoup.
