Another great trail ride at Choccolocco Mountain Off Road Park. Not many showed up, but we still had a great time. There were 4 of us in the group. Trail ride started off good. We stayed on the 1 & 2 trails since this was everyone’s first time at the park except for me. Did not want to scare off DRFC on 3 or 4 rated trails. Sometimes if you get DRFC on a difficult trail, he wants to bail on you, so we try and keep him in the center so he has to stay with the group.

My wife confiscated my camera for her photography school, so I did not get to take many pictures since I was limited with son’s camera. Trail ride started at 12:30 PM. We started off on some trails that I did last time.

About 2 hours into the ride, our first breakage occurred. 84Ranger somehow was able to lodged a tree log between his axle and the frame, pulling his driver’s side rear break line in half along with the steel line that leads to the passenger side. After some studying, we took the rubber line off on the passenger side rear disk caliper and hook it to the driver’s side disk caliper and to the main line that feeds the rear brakes. So now he had 2 front brakes and 1 rear brake.

So I plan was to get him back to the parking lot and he could ride with someone else. It sounded like a good plan, but somehow we ended up next to a big TeePee, no Indians were found. Of coarse this was for a trail called “TeePee”. Well I guess we made a wrong turn and ended up on a trail called Rubicon, right next to TeePee Trail. It started off great. I few little rocks and than some little bit bigger rocks, than some BIGGER rocks. We were on the wrong trail for sure. It’s one of those you get so far, you think it’s going to get better but it doesn’t, it didn’t. At the end of the trail, which it seemed forever, there were some boulders. I manage to get over them and Lee (JK) made it over also. As the JK was making it over, I found a bypass trail for DRFC and 84Ranger. Would I do the trail again, I would say yes. It was a fun trail even though we found it listed as a level 4 trail. If you like a rock garden, there is plenty growing rocks on this trail waiting for Jeeps. We than proceeded to the parking lot to leave 84Rangers’ truck.

We rode on some other trails after that. About 5:30PM we did a trail called “Short Cut”. It was a long trail with loose rock, dirt and some deep 2 foot to 3 foot canyon ruts that you had to straddle. DRFC was about to turn around until we told him it was a level 2 trail. Whoops someone read the map wrong? Anyway, no one fell into the ruts but when we got to the end, it was blocked due to some new construction. So we had to turn around and take one of the side trail. Everything was fine until DRFC turned around, which those spots were limited. Somehow he decided to break a hub during the turnaround. We had to pull him with a tow rope in the turnaround. Maybe this is when he hit his front bumper on a dirt sidewall causing the fender to hit his door which caused his door to bend which prevented him from exiting his vehicle to look at the damage? If looks could kill, we would all been dead. We went back to the base camp and decided to call it a day. The owner and his wife walked over to say hello. Super nice folks. He stated that anyway he could help CAOS, just give him a call.

So here are the few pictures I took, along with a YouTube video. Hope you will enjoy. I think if we ever had a club ride out there, yawl will really enjoy the place. You don’t have to have big tires out there to have fun. We did run into one club ride out there. It was a group from Mobile Alabama. Seems like they had about 10 to 15 folks out there.
