trails

I have just recently done some mods to my 2011 Sahara Unlimited. I have been to Hollytree (north Alabama/South TN) and I have been to Wooly's OffRoad in Columbia, TN. I enjoyed Wooly's much more compared to Hollytree. Has anyone been to both Stony Lonesome and Wooly's? How do those two compare?

I am ready to get back out there with my new mods

Alabamajeeper Stoney Lonesome is my favorite place to spend a weekend. I've had good times and I've broke a bunch too. It's a great time and I highly recommend it. I've been to Hawks Pride and their trails are all cut by doziers. It's fun but I like the more natural trails. I like riding anywhere though. I'll be hitting up Stoney alot this year.

Magichelmt Great links. Thanks guys. I'm in Meridianville just north of Huntsville. I have a stock 2013 JKU Sport. One day I will have a small lift and some decent off road tires.

ronb256 Boone you and I have the same driveline setup. I haven't had mine off road yet but glad to know that you have and had no problems.

Boone Stony Lonesome is an awesome park. I've been a couple of times and HIGHLY recommend it. If you get hungry, you can leave the park and drive down the road about a mile to the Stony Lonesome Cafe. When you pay you get an armband so you can leave and come back as you wish for the day. I recently rode Hale Mountain, and it depends on what type of wheeling you prefer. Stony Lonesome is dirt trails with the occasional mud/clay areas. All types of trails from beginner to pure rock climber that are all well marked. Hale Mountain is more of a rocky terrain that has plenty of dry creek beds and challenges. The trails are somewhat marked, but a local university is in the process of marking (GPS) the entire park. Stony Lonesome is a smoother trip, if that makes sense. You definitely test your suspension on Hale Mountain! We had a ton of fun at both locations with little to no trouble. Here's my rig setup so you know what I drive; 6cyl auto, 4 inch suspension lift, BFG all terrain 33's, d30 & d35 3.07 open carriers (stock) with stock axles and winch.

I hope this helps,
Boone

AirDWN Tuscumbia looks like a great place to ride but I'm in Birmingham. Cullman is a hellofva lot closer to me than waaaaay up there. Nevertheless, if anyone is looking to take a ride up to either park in the near future you can count me in.

Bean68 If your gonna drive that far you might wanna check out Hawk Pride Mountain. They have some amazing wheelin and a large chunk off land. It's in tuscumbia, AL. Check out there website at www.hawkpridemountainoffroad.com Its a great place for the whole family. With something for every type of rig.

looked like an adjacent lot. But last time I was there it looked like they were bulldozing a road from the trails to the area. That was back in July. They may be finished by now. They were also bulldozing a lot of vacant area. They may be getting ready to build more cabins. They've had a couple Jeep Jamborees there, so if it's good enough for them it's good enough for us mere mortals.

There's a couple spots where there's a picnic table or two. Last time I was there it looked like they were working on a few store fronts. There's also some small cabins in the area.

The trails are GREAT. They're well marked from easy to advanced to extreme. They're great about pulling you out if you get stuck ($15 deposit). I drove my 07' JK up there with my at the time worthless 255 70r 18 Bridgestone Duelers and handled all but a couple extreme rated hills.

You'll be okay as long as you stay on the trail. There's a couple deceptive mud holes there, though. The mud in Cullman is unusually thick and heavy, almost like clay, so don't be brave and try to run through them unless you paid your deposit. I got off course and tried to go through a mud hole covered over by thick brush. Stopped me in my tracks all the way up to my frame.

However, there's plenty, plenty easy trails to wonder around on. You can't possibly get lost unless your clinically blind. All the trails lead you back to the entrance. Also, from what I've seen, they're expanding the park. I'll be going back there when the weather cools off more around the middle of Oct.

AirDWN I'm shocked no one has responded to this thread.

The only official off-road park left that I know of in the state of Alabama is Stoney Lonesome in Cullman county just outside of Dodge City. I've conquered every hill there except the extreme hills called gutt buster and some kind of name like widow maker or something like that. There's enough to keep you busy for at least half a day. If it's good enough to hold the Jeep Jamboree it's good enough for the average off-roader.
