We drove through Bankhead this past Sunday. The county roads are dirt and gravel but we didn't come across any real trails, well one, sort of... Are there any?

Yeah there are... But I cant remember how to find them. I need a guide, someone who has been there before. Some boys from Hartselle showed me around once, and we found some.

I can get around some of Bankhead. I couldn't tell you off the top of my head, but I could remember where to go once I got out there. Some buddies of my mine know it a lot better than I do though.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

Map

Here is a link to a 2011 Bankhead Road Usage map. You can get paper copies but we just downloaded it to the iPad and carried it along. It was good for identifying the types of roads in the area and where we were "allowed" to be in the Jeep. Still wanted to find more trails!

oh and we didn't make it south of the #2 row of the map index . We spent most of the time in grid 1-C. Everyone should pick a grid to explore and post your findings here! haha.

Where were ya'll saying you got tires on the cheap? I think it got covered up by pages about the meeting. Tire Rack is $1,080.46 for 5 33x12.5x15 Duras shipped.

Surely I can get them cheaper somewhere else...
