Do you think there'd be any issue with bringing my wife and two small kids (7 and 8) to Uwharrie when it dries out, to try one of the easy trails? I am getting a 2-door Sahara.
I took mine in a stock 2000 Sahara. No sweat...go with someone is preferred.

Riccochet My advice, from someone that's spent some time and money in Uwharrie, is to wait till it dries out. I see you have a stock JKU. Even Wolf Den trail will be near impossible for someone with no skill when it's wet. If you don't hit the up-overs properly you'll high center, slide off or get stuck. Uwharrie is a slick, sticky mud mess when it rains. It's hard for people with highly modified Jeeps to navigate even the easy trails.

I suggest waiting out this rain and then taking the course or go with some fellow Jeepers from the forum.

GreenRubi I don't know much about the Uwharrie 4wd training course, but I just checked out their facebook site and it looks pretty interesting. If you are brand new to wheeling it could be well worth the $225. Their site says that includes 10 hours total of instruction, freebees, lunch and a trail ride.

There are several trails at Uwharrie you can do in a stock jeep without any issues. For example, Wolf Den, Falls Dam, Slab Pile and Sawmill. Another option is to go out to Uwharrie with a group from the forum. It wouldn't cost you anything and you could get tips and advice from the more experienced wheelers in the group.

For your first trip I would try to go out there when it is dry. It has been wet a lot this summer and Uwharrie is more challenging when it is wet.

Uwharrie Training Course 4WD - 101 Training

I'm looking for feedback on the Uwharrie 4wd training course Scott Fields hosts. I have zero off-road experience with jeeps but years of ATV experience (I understand obstacles, getting hung-up etc.). It's $225 for the day and wondering if it's worth it considering I may only going to Uwharrie a couple times a year (need to find a group to educate the new guy). Any feedback is appreciated. My jeep is stock so I want to get out in the woods to see what I really need as it's my DD and I can't wreck it. Thanks!
