over here in Pickens/Liberty SC we have "Rices Creek" its 10 or 20$(il get a confirmation on the price later this afternoon) to ride all day, mud, small rock climbs. Iv been told their are mud holes that eat trucks but never been over to check it out sense i dont have the setup for srs off road. Issaquena over in central SC gets a bit mudy and 2 small hill climbs. i was told about Rocky Bottom lastnight but not sure of location.

Horse Pasture off 178 towards NC has some decent roads. Cross over Hwy 11 from Pickens Liberty and when you pass scatter brains you're getting close. It will be on left just across the small bridge.

I thought they cleaned the Horse Pasture up and smoothed the roads out after they built all those houses. Rices Creek ORV park myspace: MySpace - Rices Creek Off Road Park - 36 - Male - EASLEY, South Carolina - myspace.com/433801287
no official website but has all the info and directions

Gulches ORV Park

Blue OHV Trail & Red OHV Trail in Manchester State Forest
Cedar Springs OHV Trail, Enoree OHV Trail, and Parsons Mountain OHV Trail in
Sumter National Forest

Not sure if all of those allow full size vehicles. there's also a reserve around Clarks hill/Edgefield but again, not sure what type of motorized transportation they allow. all of them have a web site and should provide more info if a Jeep is allowed and where.

Columbia SC:

gone are the days of just riding thru fields, going down a power lanes, tearing up dirt roads .....etc. 1. Either owned by someone 2. Owned by SCE&G (the power company) or 3. Dirt roads don't exist anymore (good ones around here anyway)

You must be allowed, pay entrance fee, and "gotta plan a small trip" just to get dirty.

horse pasture, is cleaned up. was there earlier this year and it's all thick gravel. unless you wanna look like something off a black and white tv screen, keep the top on and windows up. I had the sunglass line on my face but with gravel in stead of sand.

Heard of rice's creek. Also heard their land use permit expired and they couldn't get it renewed. Rumor or truth?

Parson's Mtn, fourwheeler dirt bike only.

Fruit mtn, my intrest is sparked, only cause i haven't heard of it. Directions details, PM me if you have rides going. Looking for new jeepin buddies. if i have second rig i'll make Yota' buddy my spotter and make him leave the pre runner at home. See thread in trail pics for earls ford.

There are no public lands trails open for Jeeps in SC. Gulches and other private parks is all the riding there is in SC unless you have your own land.

Does anyone know of any any viable off road trails here in South Carolina yet?

I live in Greenville and really need to find somewhere to go wheeling.

I went up to Pisgah this weekend in Brevard, NC and even all the camp site access trails there have been paved! Very disappointing.

I checked gulches website but to be honest the video made the trails look pretty simple and not worth and hour drive to get there.

Has anyone been? Is it worth it?

I've got a 97 TJ, 33 inch tires, 6inch lift, winch, etc that I'd like to challenge.

Help me out!

Also looking for some off roading buddies so if your down hit me up!

I have been there many times. It is a good place to go. You can camp there at night and ride the trails at night also. They have trails for stock to wild. You will not see any pavement there.

I also am in greenville and have a 1997 Jeep TJ. Just traded my 95 YJ for it.

How much land is usually needed? I'm in the process of looking for a used Jeep and have about 15 to 20 acres in Summerville (outside of Charleston) that I am planning to use for mudding. Don't know if that would be enough but the rest of the property is being used as a horse farm so I need to keep those trails intact.

I would like to make it available for others but I have to figure out how insurance would work and also need to make sure it doesn't change the agriculture tax status of the land.

Most places have at least 80 acres. 15-20 would work but you would have to limit number of vehicles.

There are a few good places near hendersonville I have lived here all my life there are pinical mountain and boyscamp at chimney rock which is a harsh but beautiful trail. Its about 500 ft higher then chimney rock. and has amazing views. and best way to find trails is find the local redneck hang out spot on like thursday fri and sat afternoons after dark go up to them and most likely they are board and will either want to go wheeling and show you or they will tell you thats what i do everywhere I go. and there is a sick rock hill climb just 10 min from down town hendersonville



I will post some pics of wheeling trips up here later

Anyone from SC should check out Upstate Legends Jeep Club. They are on Facebook and have a website.

Hey I have been trying to find some good trails in the mild or lesser range. Could anybody PM or text me some info? I am in Lexington, SC. I just got my first Jeep a JK Unlimited Rubicon. Its the only thin I could find to replace my old locked 94 Land Cruiser. Really anxious to try it out. Been riding dirt bikes around for years. Always looked for single track though. But just got into wheeling here in the last couple of years. And don't know of many spots. Thanks for any help.

Your not to far from gulches off-road park. There is trails in there for everyone. Even stock. But you will be surprised at what you jeep will do stock. People there are friendly and will help you accomplish anything you try. Give it a shot you will be hooked. There are also rangers there that will take you on a tour of the place and take you threw a few trails that they know you can do. Just follow them and what they say and you will be shocked. If you go let me know. We go often
