My first trip to Uwharrie!

Hey everyone, I am finally planning on making it up to Uwharrie next weekend with a local 4x4 club. Can't wait to go! Anyone have any suggestions for the trip? Trails to hit, or avoid? We're staying on Arrowhead, I don't know if that matters. Anyway if anyone else wants to join, the more the merrier! Wouldn't mind meeting some forum members anyway!

What sort of mods does your Jeep have? I've done almost every trail there except Dicky Bell and Dutch John, Daniel was pretty fun.

Right now all I am working with is a 2004 Rubicon with a Fabtech 6" Long Arm suspension lift. 35" Bfgoodrich AT, and a ZJ steering conversion. No aftermarket bumbers or armor or anything else.

u will do well on all the trails there at Uwharrie. If u see something over ur head, just go around it. And always remember that u have to drive that jeep home.

Psh yeah, your jeep is probably more capable than mine and mine did everything there. I took an easy line around the last obstacle on daniel and kodak.

We made our first trip out on Thursday, it was HOT, nobody on the trails at all, it was perfect...I am not sure how they rate thier trails, but we didnt do Daniel or Kodiak. Maybe next time, and its a stock 11 Wrangler

Sweet! Well the only thing im worried about is that theres a chance of thunderstorms all next week around Uwharrie. I was excited to do some actual trail riding instead of the "mudding" thats only available around me, but I heard that once it rains there, it becomes a clay mud mess! lol Hopefully I can Escape it.

It does. And it gets super slick too. Don't let it soak your hopes though. The trails really suck when it's dry. The dust is terrible and worse than the mud IMO. I may be down there myself if things work out.

Pray for rain! We were down there this past weekend Thurs-Sat, bone dry, the dust was unbearable and the place was like a ghost town, not to mention the 100+ heat!!

It's so dry down there that only a monsoon would make it excessively muddy, LOL! A few showers would help; the FS roads are just unbearable right now

Most of the crew im convoying is leaving the Jacksonville area around 230, so we should be there around 6ish... We'd be leaving earlier but I have to do a "final audit" for the marine corps since im all but out... well see you there tonight! Can't miss my jeep its a big lime green rubi so if you see me, feel free to flag me down. Otherwise once we get settled in I'll mosey on down to your site! Happy Trails!

You shouldn't need any of it if you are not riding alone.

Braves got smoked 9-0 but we got great seats pretty close to the field like 17th row close to home plate. The only videos I got was of Ivan's JK, the YJ nathan i think, and Edgar? black JK not many pictures of anybody else. Dad took a bunch Sunday going through dutch john and daniel.
