Yellow Springs/English Mountain - Smoky Mountains

I guess this is the right place for this. I've had my TJ for about 6 months or so but today was the first time I've really gotten to go wheeling besides little stuff like Parsons Branch. The trails were pretty hairy and i was worried about not having lockers and running Dana 30/35 but i must say I'm extremely impressed with my Jeep. It went anywhere i tried to take it no problems and now that I know a place to go I definitely plan on going more often now. There were some monster jeeps up there but i didn't get any pics of them. I didn't get a whole lot of pics because i was having to much fun but here are a few of the trails.


















Looks like someone didn't make it.

Its in Cosby, TN. Its called Yellow Springs RD. It used to be an old logging road years ago. The pictures don't do it justice. It looks like a trail through the woods but its actually all rock. I didn't get any pictures of the good stuff but lots of crawling through pretty good size stuff.

That's only an hour give or take from Asheville. My wheeling buddy and I are always looking for new places to go. Its doable in semi stock rigs?

It's doable stock but the main concern would be clearance. It's really really rocky. I have a 4 inch lift and 33 12.50's and while I have plenty underneath, my rear tires were digging in the rear fenders quit a bit. But its a good excuse to get those metal cloaks I've been wanting

That looks like a good afternoon ride. Not too tough but enough to keep you occupied.
