Wheeling in the Pines

I just bought my xj about 6 months ago took me till september to get all the work done to it that it needed. Im finally getting my 30" BFG A/T's put on next week (DD gotta get decent mpgs). Ive been to the pines once offroading, but fairly familiar to the area since we rented a cabin for a week annually in atsion on the lake. The last time i wound up on some private road and a piney chased me out literally. Wheres the best spot to go? I'm looking to go next weekend sometime. Ive been thinking of Apple pie hill and my friend who wheels his JK on 35s mentioned carranza road off of 206.

You can visit Apple Pie Hill, but
DO NOT GO UP
The signs are all gone but it is illegal on top and you will be fined if caught ;-)

the legal trails are tyhose that are on a map and do not have any signs posted up... but unfortunately alot of the signs do not stay up due to *******s.... For the most part though... if its a "named" trail on your gps or on google its legal to be on.

Those puddles can be very deceiving out there, some of the ones that look nasty are only a foot deep and some have nasty rutts...

That looks awesome. Im about 2 months before my IRO 3.5 inch lift so I am all stock right now but Seeing you guys stock looks pretty cool.
I do have a love for stock jeep offroading just because it teaches you common sense and the limits of the vehicle. A lift and tires gives people confidence and any new lifts are the ones that get stuck most.

Wharton can be fun, but no way I'd take my new(ish) XK down there. Sure wish I had an old XJ or something to take out.
