Ashville NC

I am going to be in Ashville/Fletcher NC 7/25 - 7/29 and have Friday 7/27 open and was wondering if there are any trail rides going on? If anyone knows the area and wants to get together for some offroad that would be great!

I live in Asheville - awesome place. Not many places to wheel, though ... at least not compared Colorado where I used to live. The only real public 'trail' would be Hurricane Creek out I-40 towards the TN line. It's suitable for a stock vehicle. The other stuff is private.

Short Hurricane Creek video I through together last fall when me and friend did a quick run one Friday morning:

When I wheel 'local', I generally go to Uwharrie.

Wish I could join you if you go, but I'll be out of town ...

Have fun!

Is hurricane creek rd a forest service rd? I did a quick mapquest search from Fletcher and it has me coming in off NC-209 to get to hurricane creek rd. Will this let me out on 40 at the end? What is the best way?

I appreciate the help.

We made it out to the trail on Friday. To be honest I compared your video clips to the areas we were in and found nothing familiar, maybe I was in the wrong place?

We were heading west on I40 and between mile marker 7 & 8 there was a drive off to the right, we took it. About a mile in there were old cabins on the right. We came to a fork in the trail and stayed right, ended up turning around due to mud filled trenches that were too deep for my stock JKU. Once turned around (that was a trick) we returned to the fork and stayed left. This took us past some old busses (still have no idea how they got way out there) and some cleared areas that look as if people camp there (fire pits). We continued up the mountain trail until we came to a large tree that had fallen over the trail with no way to get around it. I checked my trip meter and we were 5.7 miles from I40. We got turned around and headed back. As we got to the cabins we came upon an oncoming truck, stopped and talked with the driver. He said he had one of the cabins. He asked how far in we had gone, we told him. He just smiled....then continued to tell us how many jeeps had rolled over as they tried to get out on the top of the mountain, he told us that we had gone further than most. He said he goes with his 4wheeler and the trail is barely wide enough for that. Not sure if we were being fed a line of <<<< or what but I will admit the trail we were on was very narrow and not too many places to pass any possible on coming traffic. Anyway we had a great time, it was quite the adventure.
