Absolutely! There are quite a few good ones and several that I just went out today to but wanted to wait until I had a few other to run with. The ones I know of are fun and there isn't a worry about getting stuck.

There are two really good ones in Garner right beside the Jeep dealership there and one in Cary that begins at the intersection of Evans rd and Morrisville Carpenter rd. Also the page rd exit 282 from I-40 has some good trails too!

cmon! 47 people have viewed this thread and none have added any info about good places to go wheelin?

There are no just off road fun trails that take you through the woods without banging your Jeep's skid plates or driving over things you could get caught on. I might try it again to see if I missed something?

I have plans this weekend and next...maybe the following weekend? I don't know of any trails around us however I would love to go play at the Wal*Mart construction site but that would probably be frowned upon.

There are tons of construction areas here--long stretches of major roads with wide dirt piles next to them.

My jeep keeps pulling to the right, officer.....

If it wasn't so darn far I would ride there just to get some ribs at Pan Pan's. Been a few years since I have been to that area

I would be in for some Cary/Raleigh area rides. I am new here to the forum. First Wrangler, and I'd like to get it off road, but not dinged up just yet. She's only a week old.

I didnt realize all of you were here in the Raleigh area!! Hell yeah i'm down but this next month is no good, stupid army school i have to go to, they tend to not like it when you dont show to those kinds of things. But when I get back def!!! I enjoyed Uwharrie, theres also one in Mountain city Tn called Calliente (i think), a buddy and I went to 4th of July weekend, GREAT TIME!! We should all get together one weekend and hit something, big or small.

If you guys plan a local trip and I'm not working, I'll be interested!
I would probably be interested in going after work, if I don't have anything planned!

So, I went out today and embarrassed myself trying to even *find* the Uwharrie trails. I went to Troy, NC. Found a dinky ranger station with NO info on the Offroad trails (plenty of info on hiking, BTW...).

How does one get to the beginner/newb trails at Uwharrie? I need specifics. I drove around and around the perimeter of what I thought was the forest, but saw no trails to go off on. Do tell...

Hi Shell, I will try to find that trail. Hopefully it's not too technical for a newb like myself.

Hey-don't feel bad. I am on my second TJ, but still consider myself a newb to the trailing thing. I have taken both off-road, but nothing serious. I have been too chicken, as they have both been daily drivers. I am wanting to get into more myself, so hopefully a group will form here for a trip and we can all get brave together!

Awesome!

I have been looking for somewhere to go that will get my jeep a little dirty without much damage as I am still newbie. I will check out the trails near Raleigh if I can find them.

From what everyone told me is at the beginning of the season it is the roughest with the humpty humps... they haven't been worn down yet.

Also if you go when it's sloppy its "a whole new world."

It was dry when we went and the only damage a stock TJ got was on daniel. Every other trail was very stock friendly.

It's off 109 and to buy a pass it's at the Eldorodo Outpost. It's a BP gas station with a kareoke guy singing out front... yes.

It's like a big ol' country store/gas station and the entrance is south of that about 1/8 mile. I came in from the North.

Hey I live in Raleigh very close to NC State. I am interested in local trips as well since my jeep does not like highways.

Anyone want offroad this Thu (10/7) or Sun (10/10)

This is my first Wrangler (stock version) and want to try it offroad without dinging it up. New to offroading.

Uwharrie sounds like a good place from this forum posts. Also from earlier in this post "There are two really good ones in Garner right beside the Jeep dealership there and one in Cary that begins at the intersection of Evans rd and Morrisville Carpenter rd. Also the page rd exit 282 from I-40 has some good trails too!" - wondering if anyone else has tried these and what they thought?

If anyone is interested and knows a local Raleigh area place to offroad I have this Thu and Sun open. Willing to try Uwharrie also.

Uwharrie is a good place but be careful there. You can seriously bang up your Jeep quickly just even on the simple trails. Definitely recommend trying it out though! The one on Evans is private property so I wouldn't do that and so is the other in Garner. you need permission from the land owner to get out there. Just a word of advice. Page rd is still under a lot of construction and there are lots of places. Some of them have been blocked by dirt I think deliberately but they are still tearing up everything out that way. There is a mud place not to far from Raleigh about 30mns that some of us might be checking out this weekend. Not sure quite yet though. If you ever just want to go for a drive through some of the woods around here with another Jeeper, let me know- I'm always up for it!
