Figured id start a post, seems like most of the good places are disapearing, id love to have a on going thread that doesnt stop about where people can ride in Southeast TN or N GA, preferably LEGAL , Also any word on Upper Tellico Area, Slick Rock,News, Ideas, Get togethers, Etc. Im aware that most trails in Cherokee are actually good if the gates are open. So if anyone knows of new places or just old places long forgoten just start posting.
Here is a list of places im aware of
Upper Tellico - Closed
Prentice Cooper- Open - I think
Wind Rock- Eh
Slick Rock- Closed
Owl holler- Closed
Coke Plant- Illegal
Behind Toyota Dealer in Cleveland- Illegal -----get my drift
Big hill at the Exit in Cleveland TN- Illegal
Back yard - Too Tiny
Mud hole in the the drive way- Pathetic
The Ocoee area is in the Cherokee National forest, 10min from my house , trust me there is no where to ride legaly. Occasioinally they open some gates up in the National Forest and you can ride on some old log trails. Used to be able to Ride at LOST CREEK in RELIANCE , but that is off limits also, I grew up here, and know the area well. If you just want to ride trails then the Ocoee area is great, but that is just about it TRAILS. HOWEVER, if anyone is interested the only place i know that might be fun is Jacks River, across the bridge its supposed to get kinda harry, from what i know its called 7 creeks , b/c you have to cross 7 creeks to get to where you are going. Hopefully this Tread will catch on more././././././././///????????????????
I'd be interested to hear about those as well. There is also Aetna Mountain in Chattanooga, Windrock as mentioned. Beasley Knob is a fun day trip. Other parks are Gulches ORV in SC. Durhamtown Plantation has a new 4x4 section in Union Point, GA. I've been pioneering the East Alabama parks. I'll be at Choccolocco Mountain in a couple of weeks.
i have never done either one but have been doing some web crawling and plan to try both out in the near future, tatum lead is a trail system maintained by the forestry department, and sheepwallow is just an old county rd that has been washed out but is still open for travel
