I'm at auburn right now, have a 79 CJ7, but i dont take her out too much. I've been out to drunk creek a couple times with other people and it is blocked off from drivin through it as far as i know. still fun place to go tho.

Hey, I posted in the Dothan thread too, but like I said, I'm up for a ride anytime. Just name the time and place. I loved taking the backroads up to Auburn when I was in school there. Haven't taken that trip in a while.

for real guys, im at auburn now too... and i just want to go ride around off road a bit... anywhere is fine with me. I have been through most of the tuskegee NF main roads, and a few of the "trails" that were wide enough to fit down. I am down for anything in the auburn area though... if ya'll know of some good spots share it!

btw, 79CJchik, i think i saw that jeep on your profile today parked in auburn... i always notice a CJ when i see one!

Where is Drunk Creek???



Should we have an informal Auburn jeeper meeting somewhere in the Auburn area? Maybe a Sat lunch , weekend picnic outing or an evening eat and greet???? Just a thought.

Drunk Creek is out in Loachapoka. You can get to it a couple different ways i think. I got a buddy to give me directions to a spot he took me to once:

"1. get on Hwy 14 (MLK Drive) going S/W
2. turn right onto Waverly Rd. (first right past the post office)
3. turn left onto Co Rd 65 and continue until you hit the bridge
* instead of turning at CR65, you can turn left onto CR64 and it will be a lot quicker but the last time I did this it was blocked off. not sure if it still is though so it may be worth a shot. "
Those were his directions and i'm pretty sure its drunk creek, regardless is a really nice drive out their, really pretty.

I have no idea which way we went becuase it was several years ago, but the road we took was pretty challenging and 4wd was required... and it was dry, no mud. My buddy that took me was driving a GMC Sierra extra-cab though so I'm sure a Jeep would be a little easier. If it's open I will definitely be going back there to give that road a try myself.

Thanks CJchik for the directions.
Where did you ride in the forest?? Have you been down the trail off of 915?

Nowhere to wheel in Auburn

I lived in Auburn for a year and a half, never found any trails. You could find your way onto some hunting land but that is just going to get you shot. You could drive up to Gardendale and wheel til it breaks. Greyrock is awesome too.

We turned off of college street to the right (if youre heading towards tuskegee) right before a church. We just went down a bunch of roads wide enough for my CJ to fit and when we came to a dead end just turned around. We crossed over 85 and came out on Wire Rd to go home. I was just followin directions cause it was my first time in there.

I dont believe i've been off 915, how is it?

The trail off 915 was very fun and a little challenging. I would not suggest street tires...... I would suggest a winch or trail partner. I was a little foolish to attempt without help now that I look back on it.

I think the Auburn Jeepers need to have a eat and greet or something along that line pretty soon.

I think it'd be great to meet up somewhere and eat, but I wont be able to until the Spring semester starts in Jan. most likely

I'm pretty sure i went down that trail off 915 a few weeks ago... it was a tight squeeze all the way to the end, but it was fun! I am also totally down for an auburn jeeper's lunch.

i rode out to drunk creek today, nice directions, got me right to it. there are some dirt roads out there, but most of the ones that would go to any really decent spots are gated, and im not about trespassing. all the same, it was a nice drive out there.
