Birmingham Trails??

Any in or near bham? All of the old trails we used to ride are gone.

My BIL and good friend both have wranglers to break in and I need to get my XJ dirty! ALL are stock and the XJ is 2wd, mainly want fun trails, not bogging or crawling.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

GHOST

The forum Rocket City Rock Crawlers, in Huntsville, may be a good place to try. There are several places that those guys wheel. May try there.http://www.rocketcityrockcrawlers.com/

What trails did you use to ride and what area of Bham are you in?

There are still many excellent trails in the Mt. Olive area with a wide variation of difficulty. There are some excellent and scenic trails over in the Deerfoot area of Trussville along the Cahaba River that are excellent for stockers and mild builds. There are also several clubs in the area that lease land to ride on.

there are several off road parks in the area and some forest roads around. Just don't get sucked into the power line, gas lines, construction site trails that people will call the "local" spots. keep it legal and have some fun!

There are a couple of trails down lakeshore Dr between Hwy 150 and Oxmoor Rd. Tread lightly and make yourself visible during hunting season or you'll get shot. Same goes for Cahaba River Wildlife Refuge. Best idea is to stay out during hunting season unless you have a license and your intent is to hunt. And remember when you do something stupid on the trails you make the rest of us look bad.

Best to check these out on Google Maps to get some leads on where to get to trails. Yall post some more places up!

Wildlife Management Area
Coalmont Rd - Helena
The main road is pretty mild but there are lots of trails branching off it. Just have to check for open gates and new entrances

Mt. Olive
Brookside Rd just west of Woodward Rd intersection has a few trail entrances

Hoover
Elvira Rd off Hwy 52. Some trails off this road but are sometimes patrolled. Go past both railroad tracks and you reach the trails behind Regions Park.

Pelham
Firetower Rd and Griffin Rd has several trail entrances

Leeds
Markeeta Spur Rd/Floyd Bradford Rd/and the old rail bridge over I-20 will get you into a bunch of trails
