Durhamtown 4x4 Park

Anyone been to Durhamtown 4x4? Would like to hear any opinions... it's about 80miles from ATL, thinking of heading out sometime, but curious as whether it's worth the time.

Thanks!!

I went last weekend and had a blast. It has plenty of trails some that are tame and some that are mild. Grand Canyon/Cougar Canyon are fun, Slippery Nipple is rock and was by far my favorite course. They also had a Jeep obstacle course, plenty of mud, and a rock garden. It took us two day and nights and we still didnt get to do it all.

I did head out a couple of weeks ago, and it was a blast. Meant to post back here, but...<lame excuse goes here>

It was my first time out there, and the guys were pretty friendly. We had long chat with Mike (the owner) and another Mike... who had been instrumental in designing some of the courses. Unfortunately, some of the ATV trails were closed that weekend due to a race, so we were restricted to the Jeep trails.

If you're going alone (i.e. one vehicle), I'd highly recommend having a winch and making sure you have a winch mount point before you get into any mud. They look VERY deceiving!! I did get stuck twice -- the first time I wasn't paying attention, and thought it was "no big deal"... and ended up rocking myself out. The second time around, I had to winch myself out... I had lost all traction because of the really sticky mud, and also not getting enough wheelspin on the Rubicon 4-Lo to spinoff any. I've since heard that in the Rubicon, 4-High is pretty much "good enough" to go through mud, and 4-Lo should only be used for rock climbing & climbs. Sounds reasonable, but I'm yet to confirm.

But all in, it's a great place. They have some facilities for camping, cabins, etc., and although we didn't utilize, seemed good.

The one negative was the map -- maybe it was me, but reading & following that map was possibly the toughest bit of being on those trails!!

I went a few months back and it was ok, and I agree the hardest part of Duraham town is the map.

Anyone interested in Durhamtown tomorrow?

I've been wanting to check this place out. Im going up tomorrow morning. Would prefer to go with a partner just in case I get stuck. The more the merrier. Sorry about the short notice.
We will be up there by 10:30am. if anyone wants to join. Since its my first time at Durhamtown, I plan on staying on the light trails.
