Any nice trails in the Greenville, SC area ?

Besides The Gulches ? just looking for some trails or county roads that are not maintained... also is there any abandoned military bases that are open in the area ?

Im new to the Greenville area myself, and have been wondering the same thing. Where are the Gulches and both places do you need to be locked?

I decided not to head to Gulches saturday. Being that they are having an event there and Jeeps are a new thing to me, I felt it was smart to wait atleast another day. I may spend some of the day looking under some explorers at LKQ. I figure a LSD and soon a front locker at minimum and I will be ready to go for sure.

Best of luck Shadow! Hope ya have fun. Let us know how they do the poker run and how it was with pics of course!

On a side note, I sold some seats to a guy today who was telling me to check out Gulches. Had tons of positive things to say. I am stoked!

I went to Gulches today and had a blast! definately a ton of fun and some of the nicest people. I met quite a few great people including the owner who showed me the park. I definately have the bug now and will be doing some more work so that I can hit some of the harder level trails. If anyone has not gone there, you are absolutely missing out.

One of the greatest things to me was that they take new people out and show them where they can go and how to do it safely. When my 4wd failed (yeah did a ton of trails in RWD only but got them done) he even let me try out one of the trails with his rig. Then introduced me to a good mechanic from Foothills in Greenville. This is definately a place I will be making regular trips to! Sorry, no pictures. Next time though!

Sorry to hear about the 4WD, but glad to hear such good things about the place.
Some rain there during the week & possibly on Sat., but I don't think it will affect it much.
Come on weekend!!
Thanks.

I hope it will be fine this weekend for you! I wish I could come, my 4WD is working great and I cannot wait! But I have a buddy who is now officially off of active duty moving into my house friday-saturday so that may mess up my chances of meeting up with yall. No matter what, the place is amazing and the people that run it are absolutely great. Also, they have very good food, so ask about that.
