Gulches SC Jeepforum Trip (Im driving from around Raliegh NC)

ok so I want to put a trip together to go down to Gulches SC ORV on MARCH 6TH. It is about a 4.5 to 5 hr trip to get down there from Eastern NC. I would think we would all leave at like 530ish AM so we could start wheeling by about 1130 (giving everyone a lunch break before we start) wheel all day saturday and camp out that night and then maybe a little bit on sunday and head back home sunday afternoon.

I will be driving from the small town of princeton NC which is about 40 minutes east of Raliegh if anyone wants to convoy on the way down there. It would also be nice to meet some people from South Carolina or Georgia that wanted to go as well.

If this sounds like something you want to do please post up in this thread and well try to start making some plans.

You'll definitely want to check with Skip (owner) closer to time for your trip. We had a trip planned at the end of January but they had to close the park due to flooding and weather.

Ditto on the double check with Skip the week before you come down. I live 15 minutes from the park and the weather has been killing Skip with closures. There is also plans for another BIG group to be coming down on the 03-06-10 from western NC. I have seen some of these guys in action and crazy comes to mind watching these guys wheel!! Hope to see you there!!

Never closes due to cold weather! For the past couple of months we have been getting a lot of rain during the end of the week and weekends. The bottom of the property is right on the river that runs from Greenville and with so much water the river has been coming over the banks and making the bottom trails that connect all the trails together impassable. He was open this past weekend since we have had beautiful weather all week and weekend. Was muddy in some spots but was a great weekend. Its just better if you call Skip that Thursday or Friday before you come down and see how the weather has been or is gonna be that weekend! Heres a link to some pictures from this past Saturday. Hope you get to make it!!!

You can also go on the Gulches forum and in the general section, Skip usually updates ppl on Thursday and Friday of what kind of condition the park is in. But with you coming from such a long way I would call and double check before you head out. Heres the link
