Went to Uhwarrie for the first time, in a stock JK

Went in a bone stock JK sport (32" Bridgestones, limited slip in the rear, open front). I have been offroading in life, but never in a specific offroad type park.

Eldorado outpost was really really nice, with about everything you could imagine for a weekend at the park. We seemed to be the only vehicle there, I saw maybe 3 people on the trails all day between 11:00am to 3:00pm. We wanted to stick to easier trails (the JK is my friends and it only had 1500 miles on it). We did Wolfsden, Falls, Rocky Mountain Loop and #79 (forget the name).

Really really fun, albeit really dry and dusty. The stock JK was plenty capable for the trails, only scraping the skids twice. One sort of nerve wracking off camber spot made us a little nervous, but nothing extreme. Seemed as if the rating for the trails is a little "off". Wolfsden seemed easier than Falls, with Rocky Mountain seeming harder than moderate.

Either way, had a blast and broke or scratched nothing. I'll be taking my new (to me) Jeep down in a few weeks with the JK following me. With 2 Jeeps and recovery equipment, I am confident that the JK would do nearly any trail at the place with proper driving (and likely some body damage).

No pictures, sorry my phone died using the navi on the way up.

Nah, I think the trails are overrated, maybe with exception to Daniel. Bravo for wheeling stock.

I think some are underrated, in my opinion a few were overrated. Like I said, moderate Rocky Mountain was MUCH harder than moderate Falls. We didnt hit any of the difficult and up trails though.

Rocky Mountain should be moderate. Falls Dam should be easy IMO

Glad you had a good time out there. I've wheeled my TJ stock many times at Uwharrie and always had a blast. Actually I think many people find Uwharrie gets less fun as you build your rig. Not sure if you know but the trail pass allows you to camp off the trails too. It makes for a good weekend before it gets too hot..
