Any decent trails in the Greenville area?

Hey, just bought a TJ this past weekend and was wondering if there were any decent trails around Greenville. I and heading to the Jocassee Gorge, Jim Timmerman Natural Resources Area,on Saturday. Which I know is more of a gravel road than an actual trail, but so far that is the only place I have found within 1 1/2 hour drive from Greenville.

Hey, after not getting a response on here (other than the guy who just posted about gulches I don't think there is anyone on this forum that live in our area, they are some near columbia, charlotte and charleston though) I went of facebook and looked up some groups. Greenville Jeep Club, Upstate 4x4 Jeepers SC and Upstate Legends - Jeep Club are all good groups to join.

I haven't made it out to Gulches yet but I heard its fun. I go riding up around the jocassee gorge, its called the jim timmerman area. Its fun to drive not anything to intense only had to put it in 4-lo on a really steep tall hill. I haven't had a chance to ride the trails in North Carolina yet. Some of the jeep clubs around greenville will take group rides down to Georgia and Tennessee a few times a year. The down below has some information about it and where to get a good map (google maps doesn't show but half of the trails). Hope this helps you out.

Look into trick n traction jeep club. They meet in Easley each month. There is a ride on Feb. 21 at the Gorges and around the North/South Carolina mountain area.
If it's dry, the Gulches is a fun day too.

I live in Simpsonville and went up to Jocassee this past wkd. All the trails off the main road are closed. We still had a good time but I know there's a lot to be ridden if those gates were open. Anyone know when they open those up?

The site says March 20-May 10 and Sept. 15-Jan. 15 is when all the closed gates are open. Not sure how old this info is but from what I remember this is pretty close. Gorges State Park is another good place to go, it is past the area you went and is open most of the time.

Hello! I'm new to Jeeps and the Greenville are. My jeep isn't quite ready for wheeling yet but I'll be looking for places to go for an adventure at. So far I've been limited in the mountain roads when my GF and I go up because we have to take her little Mazda 2. Now I'm really excited to show her what the other side of the mountains look like and want to find a few places that aren't too scary for her. (Or me...) I found an off road course just above Greenville into NC but I saw if from the road and haven't gotten the chance to look it up yet. I'll be searching and let you know if I find anything. Keep the thread going with new adventures in our area...

Just moved to Simpsonville myself and am looking for some fun trails for me and the family. Not too crazy as my boy is only 4 years old and the 2006 WK Hemi is my daily driver! Can't afford to break anything, yet

Anyone ever do the Lake Jocassee/Horse Pasture run? Looks beautiful albeit mellow. Read about it here:

Hey piratenation90 Just curious if you ever got any good trail info. I am actually going to Jocassee Gorges this weekend. Plan to ride horsepasture trail but was hoping I could find something a little more fun in the same area. Any suggestions would be great
