Dirt roads and mud - Charlotte?

Are there any good trails or mud that I can get into while Uwharrie is closed? I live just east of Charlotte

Find an unfinished development. There are a few local to me that I'll occasionally wheel through. You may or may not have trouble with the law doing this. lol

I just moved to Charlotte last month. I'd be interested in hearing more about these locations you're speaking of. Especially since I live less than 5 minutes from 485 (Ballantyne Area).

These are on the north side of Charlotte. Exit 32 area off N. Tryon.

But, yeah, we should get a group together and kick up some dirt.

Why spam something about Raleigh? I'm pretty sure most of us from Charlotte aren't going to drive 2.5 - 3 hours just to hang out.

Are the university area trails legal? Or is it ride at your own risk?

Ya got that right!
If I'm gonna drive that far, I will go to Uwharrie ... but now waiting for it to dry out a bit.
Once it does, we gotta hear more about these trails off Tryon/85 .....

I'm going to say they're ride at your own risk.

Uwharrie for sure once it dries out. Doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon though.

Welp. I went to the trails in the university area today with my cousin who had been there in the past. We got part way back there and there was a downed tree blocking the path. Attempted a 10-point turn and got stuck in a mud rut. It was my first time trying out my winch. Got unstuck. Headed back out. Got stuck in another rut. Winched again. The mud was really bad back there in the areas we could get to. Should have known better but since I had the winch, I gave it a go.

Good to know! I, or someone, will have to roll out there with a chainsaw and take care of that tree.

I've seen ATV's here:

Polaris 3G - Mecklenburg County GIS

Is this where you're all talking about?
