sounds good. Maybe I'll head over there next weekend depending on how much family is in town for thanks giving.

I drove by there this afternoon outta curiosity. It has a sign on it now stating it is only for hiking and biking, no motorized vehicles allowed and it is barricaded off so that vehicles can't go down it easily.

It's a shame too, as it is a nice looking area but there is various piles of discarded auto parts (old tires and such) that are visible due to the leaves being off the trees. My guess is that is a major reason for the decision to close it to 4x4s.

Yep. I was hoping that it was still open, URE is really the only close by place I know of.

I see they're staying open thru 12/19, I may try to squeeze on last trip in.
There used to be trails running around both South Meck & Myers Park high schools. I went to Myers Park and those got blocked off back then. That was 20 years ago though. I've never found anywhere else close by to ride.

Coal Creek is a little far, but well worth it. i was there for the first time in October, and i'll def be going back.
If you google it, the website isn't the best, but the trails are really good!!
