Looking to Offraod, North Georgia

Yesterday I went to Helen to do some offroading. I visited Poplar Stump road (about an hour away from where I live) however some of the trails were closed. Also, the terrain is for the most part very simple to ride. A friend recommended Sheeps Wallow and it was really enjoyable. I am very interested in learning about what all is out there, because I know there are tons and tons of trails in North Georgia. I am not looking for anything too challenging, (rock climbing, etc.) as am I relatively new right now, but I am eager to learn! I drive a 2011 Rubicon Unlimited, 4 and 1/2 inch lift on 35 MT's; no winch yet. I am interested in something not to far away from the Norcross area, (preferably 1 or 2 hours away). Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Trails you have visited and enjoyed; really anywhere I can wheel because I want to get out there. Thanks, I love the jeep community, rock on!

Thankyou. Sheep's Wallow is in Dahlonega, Near Hwy 52 and a ways off of 400. From 400 next to the outlets I typed it in on the navigation and got there in about 30 mins or so.

Georgia Trailriders has a list of trails and OHV parks.

Login

Jeepsontrails.com also has some trails and OHV parks (locations and descriptions). Bell Mountain and Tray Mountain are popular spots. Bell is short but when you get to the top it's a beautiful view. Also, there's a part (that you can choose to bypass) that's pretty rutted out and downright fun but don't try it alone. Tray is a mild trail but it's fairly long.

I have tried Tray Mtn. before but I didn't get up that far, because I had been climbing alot that day before and got hot oil. I made it all the way to Bison View lodge and then turned around, and up until then it wasn't that hard. Thanks for the input guys.

Wassup guys I'm new here to, but I live just outside of White County which is where Helen is located. Trey gets a little rough on past the lodge. Once you come to the mud pit circle with three roads coming into it, bare right. You will go across the Appalachian Trail and you'll see a sign that says 4x4 only. It's not mud as much as a rough bumpy rocky road. We are wanting to get a group to start riding with us up here. I've rode these trails my whole life, So any questions about trails, I might just have the answer. Anyways, God bless guys! Happy riding!

I see you've got the 3.8 l engine. If you get the hot oil light, ler her cool down for a few minutes and then drive the rest in 4low. Last ride to tray, every one of the 3.8l running larger tires got the light within a 15 min. Never came on again after 4low.
