Gulches vs Callantee (sp?)

I'm in Mooresville, NC. Gulches is about 3 hours from me and Mountain City is a little more than 2 hours.

Eventually, I'll get to both these places, but which should I visit first? Why?

Whicj has better/more trails?

Is one better for camping?


Is one more crowded than the other?

I've been looking hard at Calallantee. I've been thinking maybe this weekend is a good weekend to go check it out. Any takers?

Common sense is surprisingly, not that common.

I've been wondering which would be the better choice to goto as well. To short of notice for me to make it up there this weekend though.

I haven't been to Mountain City yet, but will later this summer. I have just recently been to The Gulches and it was awesome! It is setup perfectly for your jeep! All of the trails are very easy to find and follow. Most trails are only 100 yards long or so, but are usually very technical.

My brother-in-law and I went- he's in an XJ on 33"s and I'm in a TJ on 37"s and we both found plenty of challenging obstacles and trails. There are buggy lines on several of trails as well. Pretty much everything has a bypass, so if you get in a bad spot, just back up and go around.

Can't wait to go back!

Several shots:

The guys in my club are talking about heading to Mt. City at the end of the summer. They normally go once a year, and they mentioned that there is something for everybody, from the easy, to the darn near impossible (i.e the trail "pull cable")
