Take 76 to Upperhightower road and follow it until it becomes dirt. When you come in on the other side it crosses a river into a state park.

Hey Austin! The Charlie's Creek tip was the ride of the year!!! Thanks again. We climbed the hills, crossed the creeks and splashed hard on the mud. Hope you can join us when you're on this side of the pond.

lol

tell your dad all about it. we'll start a thread on it before we ride. we'll make sure to post the videos after and you can jeep vicariously through us.

--basically just get to persimmon rd and follow the rest. this is a route to charlies creek as well. once you're on forest service rd, just continue until you see a river crossing on your left. take that and continue and you'll be in charlies creek.
Thanks. We'll check it out. Are you up for wheeling when we go?

I can't really give directions to charlies creek bc i've always take back roads to get there but I can find something for the other two.
Do you have an iPhone? If so, you can drop a pin on the map and share the location. I've got the Forest service road maps for that area, so I'd love to figure it out if you got a spot that you really like and its legal.

cleveland99 Thanks I think we are coming that way weekend after next is there anywhere clos to ride seems bell is only a short ride
04-15-2013 12:12 PM
lee indy thanks for the info.
04-15-2013 12:03 PM
austin d just joined the forums today so sorry if i'm a little late on this. but I've grew up in Hiawassee and have been to the bell more times than I can count. once you find shake rag rd (located beside a gas station), continue down that road and it'll fork in the road and you want to stay left. if you see apartments on your left then you're going the right way. you'll continue up the mountain until you hit gravel and you're at the base of the mtn and then have fun! btw if you have children please be careful. once you reach the top of the mountain, theres a drop off on one side (the back side) and it quite a ways down :x

rodin I used to go to blood mountain every other weekend with my coupe. would love to know about some trails around there.
03-23-2013 05:46 AM
ilovetojeep I was randomly with my family and found this driving around! I didn't go too much further than the entrance. Let me know how it is! At the time I was in a stock 2012 f150 haha.
03-12-2013 05:51 PM
jkdreams I'm in for anytime this weekend or a Saturday ride in two weeks, but I'd have to bail on a Sunday ride that week.
03-12-2013 03:58 PM
Michigunman Confirmed - Bell Mountain is at the end of Shake Rag Rd. It's just south of Hiawassee off Highway 76/17.

kappaknight Never heard of Blood Mtn.

Surely someone must know Bell? I heard it was 15 minutes or less away from Tray.

Are you trying to hit Bell this weekend? I was going to check out Blood Mountain, but I would be up for something else.
