Did not get to make it to Choccolocco Mountain this past Saturday. My home project turned into a nightmare.

Anyway, Just checking to see if anyone is riding at Choccolocco Mountain this Saturday (4th) if weather permits. Be nice to get a small group of stock to semi stock guys going. According to the map on their site, there is a lot of 1 to 3 trails for us. We are not into 4's and 5's.

We went to Choccolocco Mountain today and what a AWESOME Park. Trails and Trails everywhere. Arrived at 12:00PM and did not leave till 6:00PM. 6 hours of exploring of fun trails and really did not repeat that many trails. They have trails for everyone from the novice beginner to the hardcore trails. If you have a stock jeep, you will find trails that you can do. Over 200 trails and obstacles to choose from. These trails wide enough for full size vehicles and we found that 95% of the trails are marked and the map at the gate was really great. We knew where we were most of the time. Something that was neat was like on the Peddle Hill, the had a bicycle hanging on the tree with the name. On the trail Tin Can, they had a large tin can by the entrance of the trail.

We stayed on trails that were rated from 1 to 3 since that was our class. This would be a great small tire ride. A lot of the trails names fit the names. You can look on the map (red trails) and listed are the trails that we did today:
Peddle Hill - 3
Radio Flyer - 3
Burrow - 2
Blower - 3
Baja - 2
Rockwell - 2
Ground Hog - 3
Ghost Hunt - 2
Voltar - 2
Mud Hill - 2
Payton Pl - 2
Chicken Trl - 2
Swamp Rd - 2
Swamp - 3
Blue Ridge - 2
Chain Link - 2
Overlook - 2
Scenic View -1 to 2
Arsanal - 1 to 2
Tombstone - 2
Bulldog - 2
Phoenix -1
Fizzle - 2
Gauntlet - 2



We did walk over to the famous "Boat Ramp" and as we were approaching, it claimed another victim - orange Toyota. We heard the sound of a driveshaft hitting the ground. The pinion yoke left with the drive shaft.





We looked at some of the trails that had names of fear, like Mercy, Hell's Revenge, Execute, Elevator that might make some of the big boys tremble. Again, the name of the trails fits the trails.



The park has clean bathrooms and showers. We met the owner and he was super nice. He was in the process of digging a pond so folks could kick back and do some fishing. Also we noted a lot up things that are being built to make the place even better for a family outing. Again, we were really impress with this place and the attitude of the owner wanting to make this a great place. All of the folks we met were super nice. The cost of $20.00 for the day and $30.00 for the weekend was a extremely great value. You got your monies worth. The trip from Leeds to the park was 1 hour. Plenty of parts stores near by for any parts that you might break. Also several motels and restaurants near by.

I would give this place a 5 out of 5. You can see our pictures at : Choccolocco pictures by jw_britt - Photobucket You really need to visit this place.

Choccolocco was a great park and it looks like it's only going to get better with the pond going in and it looked like several other projects were under way.

Here are a few more pics:









Here's the Toyota from above. Notice anything missing?










A nice view from the top:
