I like to support local (statewide) companies.

Mountainside Off Road Park in Gadsden is pretty good. It pretty much has something for everyone. Their website went down recently, I believe due to an ownership change and was still down the last time I checked. But they do have a Facebook page.

Just got back from wheelin the southern portion of Skyway Motorway in Talledega, Nat'l forest. The name is misleading. I needed 4 low, mostly for speed control on the many deeply rutted portions. It's all passable with no damage to a stock Wrangler Unlimited. Shows up on my GPS as county road 6000-1. southern end waypoint is on hwy 148 at n33,11.7474' w086,03.8091 just west of county road 7 in Clay County, north of Goodwater. It's also just east of County Road 607, and they're real close. The one you want heads off uphill with some badly washed out asphalt visible. 607 is a good maintained gravel road.

We did it today south to north, and you come out on Hwy 77, just north of Horns Lake Road, or County Road 209 in Cleburne county. In Cleburne County, the Skyway is called County Road 307. There is another section to the north, but I haven't been on it this year. Eventually you can follow it all the way to the store at Cheaha SP.

Lots of ruts, lots of smaller rocks, a few good sections and some pretty good vistas, but mostly in the winter. Too many leaves right now. It's about 9 miles from 148 to 77 as the crow flies, but you'll probably put 12 - 13 miles on the Odo. Take a lunch, take your gal and enjoy the ride.

If you want to find a waterfall (almost dry today), High falls isn't too far away. Have your GPS search for Clairmont Springs Road and High Falls Drive.
Waypoint is n33,22.2115' w085,50.5865

The trail is at 2 o'clock on your right as you enter the parking area. There is a fork right at the beginning, take the one on the right, the higher ground. Very rocky, be careful with that gal, and your aren't at the top till you've climbed 2 steel/wood sets of steps. It's not that far, maybe a thousand feet.

Just wanted to update that the family and I drove the other section of FS 600-2 (i.e. Skyway Drive) that jbstok mentioned previously. We started at the eastern terminus at the junction of Hwy 281 and Adam's Gap Rd. (33.404164,-85.874432). We stopped at the junction of Union Road/CR310 (33.328458,-85.990101). FS 600-1 (i.e. Skyway Drive) picks back up further westward as jbstok describes above.

The official National Forest motor vehicle map can be found here: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_...rdb5213098.pdf. If the road shows up on here, it is open to motorized traffic, provided you adhere to the seasonal designations listed at bottom right.

The forest service road started off as a rough gravel/dirt road. Nothing really technical. In fact, we "passed" a Super Duty dually not far down the road. It was definitely a tight squeeze for him! Any stock 4x4 would be able to handle it, probably w/o engaging 4wd. Ground clearance is more what was needed for some washouts.

However, once we crossed onto the portion of the road east of Hanging Rock/Gunterson Rd, the trail became much more fun. I actually engaged the 4:1 4-low in some parts to help control crawling over some of the rocky portions. There was no mud to speak of, but it had not rained here in a week or two. I was hoping to make it up the Union Rd as well but did not have time.

Attached are a few pics of the what the bulk of the trail looked like.

If you are looking to get off the beaten path with your Jeep, this is a fun ride. If you are looking for more extreme crawling/bogging, look elsewhere.

Rode part of the skyline motorway Saturday. Started out on Kentuck then hit Cheaha and came out below Waldo. Nice ride. Never used 4wd. Took about 2 hours. If your looking for nice easy ride you should check it out.
