NoGaBiker I know this is an old thread (lol, I started reading it just now and saw things like, "Let's meet up next Wednesday at the so-and-so" and started getting excited. Then saw it was from 2011! )

Anyway, funny story about the Sugar Hill power lines. I am shopping for my Wrangler in March. I have a fatherless kid I mentor every week who lives in Sugar Hill. So I'm driving with him towards Mall of Ga and see a Jeep dealer. Stop in and they have a JK 3.6 with 6 speed manual, which I haven't been able to find anywhere for a test drive -- all autos.

Salesman tosses me the keys, and me and the boy go for a test drive. We're just cruising around the backstreets, paying no attention to things (I don't know the area all that well.) Come out at a parking lot next to the big old building that used to be a foundry or mill or something and is now a collection of shops, I guess. I turn into the parking lot and just cruise through. It's dark out, raining slightly, parking lot empty.

I cruise to the back of it, notice a slight part in the bushes. I nose the Jeep up into it and suddenly, like the Pevensie children stepping through the Wardrobe and into Narnia, I found myself in an off-road wonderland! I started easing down into the dirt and went about halfway down the first hill before realizing I was going to make a terrible mess of somebody else's Jeep and I didn't want to do that.

So I took it back and bought my own from him. On the way home from picking it up (I had to order so didn't get it till May 3) my first stop was at the power lines! Been back several times since. I like most of it, but that narrow bridge at the low point, when it's wet, pretty easy to slide off sideways and have to winch yourself out. (Just sayin'...

GWS22 I just emailed you Joel!

joelbarrett Awesome! Good that your fiancee had a blast too... that could be a deal killer if she didn't.

Also, do you have a location for the Charles Creek road? If so, I'll add it to the list.

F150D97 what are the directions to these dirt trails? and there is also mud trails and mud holes behind eastside hospital on tree lane, off of Ronald Reagan and 124.i go there pretty often and know a lot of people that do and we havnt had any problems yet.

pcooksey Living down on the Southwest side near Fulton Industrial. I just bought a Sahara. It is pretty imaculate so I don't want to scratch it up. But I want to do some good dirt roads.
03-11-2012 06:04 PM
Armin ALSO there is a "trail" by the walmart off of lville suwanee, i also live in lawrenceville. Add me on facebook (armin memovic) my phone is shatteredm if anyone ever wants to go to any of these places.
03-11-2012 06:03 PM
Armin There is a place called union grove down in lithonia. Legality is debated though. I know tons of people that go there on like a weekly basis, but when i went there, the cops told me to leave. . . along with the 7 cruisers, 4 bikes and one charger awaiting me at the gate. Someone called the police previous to the event though, and i WAS the only one dumb enough to show up, even though someone threatened to phone them.

Dirt Oval

if you're looking for a good place to get a little mud on the tires, there's a big dirt lot in the woods off of GA92. its just next to the lifetime fitness, across the street from the Woodlands neighborhood. Theres a bumpy oval track, a couple jumps and mud pits, and a steep loose dirt hill to climb up.

On second thought, I may have actually found it by chance on google maps...do you enter by purcell road?

Could you tell me how to get there? I am trying to head out in the afternoon. Just going with a buddy.

bama0915 Sounds awesome. And looking forward to it.
02-21-2012 07:48 PM
MotorCityBear As soon as mine comes in, (mid-March) I will try to connect with you guys for some fun in the dirt.
02-21-2012 03:12 PM
bama0915 I live on the kennesaw Woodstock line. We just bought our Jeep a month ago. Never been off-roading. My wife and I would love to join another group of experienced riders for us to follow. My email is john.f.hudgins@Gmail.com. thanks and we look forward to riding with y'all.
02-13-2012 09:20 PM
MotorCityBear I should have my Sahara in mid-March and would love to join you guys on some "moderate" trails. I am new to off-roading and this will be my daily driver so I am not lifting it or hopefully not breaking anything. I am also in the Norcross area.

sswalker2004 I'm fairly new to Gwinnett county. I'm familiar with L'ville/suwanee rd between hwy 120 and I-85 but don't know where the trail is along there. Can someone tell me how exactly where to go for the L'ville/Suwanee rd trail? I'm sure I could find the power lines near sugar hill but info on the best place to go in would be great as well! Thanks!
06-05-2011 02:08 PM
Armin Theres a trail on Lville Suwanne road by the rail road tracks, not sure of legality though :/ has some small pits, and really deep pits further down the trail. It's a bit narrow though.

We are a family-oriented Jeep club who rides the North GA trails almost every weekend!

Come and check us out and we'll show you some nice wheelin' spots! All of our trails are as difficult as you want them to be! There are the challenging spots for the brave and there are mild spots for the smart and then there are bypasses if you're not in the mood for either!

Check out our forum and join us on a ride!

Here is our Vimeo page so you can see the kind of wheeling that we do!

Thanks!
Joel
Once you join, go to the forum and check it out. All rides are listed there. It is pretty laid back. I am a member but haven't been able to hit a trail with them yet. I think they know when I will be busy with races and plan accordingly. jk

joelbarrett Sure, send 'em to joel@brainslap.com.

Thanks,
