Trails near Cartersville and Bell Mountain?

I've been jeepless since 1998, but now have a '07 Rubi I want to get on the trails in the next couple of weekends. I live in Cartersville, but I'm not from this part of GA and don't know if there are any good, legal trails near me. I know Beasley Knob is about a 2 hour ride away and we used to ride up Bell Mountain years ago. Is it still open?

I'll be searching the forum for info too.

I just went to Beasley last weekend and was told that Bell was still open for riding.

Thanks. Back in the day, Bell had some huge ruts and most stock vehicles couldn't make it. I did a youtube search on Bell Mtn and saw that people use it to launch gliders from and most of the videos looked like the big ruts have been smoothed out or filled in.

Yeah I haven't been on top of Bell in about 8 years. Back then it was doable in my WJ on 32's.

ranier, you can get to Bell Mountain's peak by turning onto Shake Rag Road off of Hwy 76 in Hiawassee in Georgia. Follow Shake Rag Road all the way to the peak.

Awesome! How was the road? Passable with a stock '13 rubi?

Heading up on sunday. The wife wants to play in the new ride but I really don't want to get too venturous. Beasley Knob was too steep for going solo. The jeep definitely has more capabilities than I do.

Where is Choccoloc? I know in Alabama, but can you be a little more specific? It is getting harder and harder to find a place to ride.

Thanks.
