Just a warning, don't go if there if it is wet. Beasley Knob is horrible when wet.

I hear it's 'slippery when wet.' (sorry, I had too, even though it was cheesy!)

I've heard Beasley can be pretty tricky. Y'all think a stock Rubi that's my daily driver (so I can't afford to break anything) could handle most of it? I've only been to Amicalola, I've had no trouble on the parts I've done (about 25% or so I'd reckon going by the map) and my buddy in his stock '98 only had a couple tough spots due to open diffs...

A stock Rubi should make most of the trails ok. I saw one climb rattlesnake and I couldn't believe it. You're gonna drag the undercarriage on some rocks so it's gonna be loud! If we finish the terra low on the Trooper we'll be there Saturday morning- if the weather permits. I won't go back if it's wet- I was never so happy to see asphalt the last time we went after a rain!

I'm going rain or shine. If it rains it may be more difficult but it's was last year the last time I was there and I'm ready to go back.

I wish I could go. I'm DYING to go ride somewhere. There really isn't anywhere to go closer to me than Morris Mountain ORV in Wedowee, AL and I haven't even gotten to take my Jeep there yet. I wouldn't even mind the hour drive there or the trip to Blairsville but this weekend and the next two weeks I'm tied up writing a 40 page thesis and a 20 page research paper on WWI for my Educational Specialist degree. How bad does that suck!? It's so hard to concentrate on school when all I can think about is the warm weather and riding in the Jeep. I'll be done this summer though so maybe I can make it to Blairsville - when it doesn't rain!

Well did you make it out, or are you still stuck in there?

yeah i'm back. i got a few pics but not many. nobody was there it was very quiet except for some fourwheelers. I rode 93C and 93D most of the day from 1 till 5 or so. 93D was pretty tuff since there was a little water here and there but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. 93C was fun at the top of the mountain cause the last time I was there I wasn't even able to attempt it but this time it was a cake walk, well it wasn't too bad. I'll post some pics as soon as I can.

There are some trails behind the park:

http://www.southernjeeps.org/trails/.../amicalola.htm

The map linked there isn't perfect, the purple section between parking area #1 and church cemetery looked like this last time I went:



I've done most of the green parts and the purple part. Some of the offshoots in the map don't exist, and there are some not shown. The wierdest part is most of the trail shows up on my RB1 as "Amicaliua Mt Rd"...

Thanks for that info. I went to high school in Jasper and never knew about these trails, never would have guessed that you could go through the park. Thanks again! Have you ever been to the power lines in Talking Rock?
