Uwharrie Trails

I'm new to off roading and Jeeps in general, and I plan on heading to Uwharrie when it opens in April. What little off roading I've done was in a 96 Chevy z-71, and it wasn't much of anything. My jeep is a 99 TJ 4 cyl with 31 inch tires. Everything else is stock. I'm hopefully gonna have a lift by april, but who knows. So which trails should I attempt when I go? What are some of the easier ones, and what can my jeep handle?

Thanks!

Matt

I am in the same situation (Stock on 31's) and have comfortably been on all the trails except for half of Daniel. Definitely go out with some other people. What can your jeep handle? Most likely more than you are willing to let it. I haven't had any issues out there,yet, and am continually impressed by what it can do. As far as your first time out, an easy rule is to stay off the trails that start with 'D'. If you ever need some people to ride with, feel free to post on: http://www.durtyrok.com/ , or look for another club to meet up with. I have heard great things about http://www.nc4x4.com/

You had no problems whatsoever? I've never been, but looking at the videos on youtube it seems like the trails are hard. I can't wait to go though. I haven't done anything other than highway driving so far, so i'm ready to off road a little

I took my TJ out there when it was bone stock with 30" tires. I hit every trail BUT Daniel and I did fine. The Poster up above is right, your Jeep can handle way more than you can. These things are AWESOME!

Post up when you want to go, You'll get plenty of ppl wanting to go too, including me.

Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.

'99TJNC, no problems yet. I always say yet, because yes you run the risk each time you go out. I guess I should clarify a little more.. Yes, I have scrapped my transfercase skid on some rocks and put a small ding on my gas tank skid. These all sounded bad at the time, but that is why the skids are there. I would suggest an oil pan skid as they don't come stock with one. That being said, I don't have one yet.

I am thinking about getting some people together when Uwharrie opens up to have a trail ride for stockers and newbies. Of course more experienced people will be welcomed, but this will be a slower paced ride where people can stop to look at the small obstacles and get spotting if wanted where more experienced riders just cruise over. If anyone is interested let me know.

igrok, I took my stocker out there on bald 30" GSAs and had fun with it too. I was amazed what a set of 31" mud terrains did.

I took my YJ there for the first time last year and had a blast. I went alone with only a passenger so I took it real easy and stayed on the easy trails. We had a blast and can't wait to go back. Take your time and you'll be fine. Like the others have said, I would stay away from Daniel.

i took my stock ford ranger 2wd with 31" tsl ss tires through some of the trails with no problems. i did have some trouble with clearance over a few of the dirt hills going in but other than that just push the skinny petal hard enough and you can make it through and over alot

^ Absolutely. As posted above some of us (and many others) have had a great time out there stock on 30" tires. The Jeep club I am in is interested in hosting a run at Uwharrie for people new to offroading or apprehensive with stock rigs. I'll post more here later when I have better info. If anyone is interested you are welcome to join the forum at www.durtyrok.com . The club is open to jeep owners in NC & SC

Mine is the stock lime green TJ w/31's





Most of the trails look like this:
