Be careful tho.... once that "off-road" bug bites you, it gets in your veins!
Have fun. I was just there this past weekend and had a great time.

Well, next week I'll be back in NC for another family reunion. I'm going to once again attempt to get to Uwharrie. I do have 2 brief wheeling outings under my belt now, so I'm a little better prepared than when I posted this thread last year. I'll still probably be going alone vehicle-wise, with 2-3 passengers with me. I'll be sure to avoid anything that looks like it could be trouble without a companion vehicle. I'll have a recovery strap and an old cheapo hand-held CB radio. I sure hope I can make it there this time.
Question: are the trails open every day of the week, or just the weekends? Our reunion is the weekend, but I'll be arriving on Wednesday of next week, so I would likely have a weekday or two available to go.

|Igrok||Every trail there is doable in a stock Jeep - even Daniel. I wouldn't recommend Daniel to noobs or people w/o lockers, but if you're crazy enough, you can get up it without any mods. Just stay towards the left going up at the top.|

|Tribefan||Unfortunately, I never ended up having the time to go. I was (and still am) pretty bummed about that.|

|Leo G||New to this site and just wondering if you ever made it to Uwharrie? If so, how did you do? I have a new JK and I'm looking to take it for a ride without breaking it.|

|Tribefan||I'll be back in Ohio by then. Unfortunately.|

|gimp5561||what day you going|

|BruceLeroy74||You should never go wheelin alone. Way to risky. My .02 worth|
|08-27-2012 06:34 PM|
|Tribefan||Hmmm... That concerns me a little.|

|Redneck grrrl||I would say that it depends on the weather, if the trails are dry no problem, if they are wet, the same trail can be a slick slimy hell hole and I would not recommend anything stock trying it or going alone. Just my .02|

|Tribefan||Sweet. I'll definitely check into that. Can't wait! Thanks again.|

|Kevin wade||You should stop at the Eldorado Outpost, they have free trail maps. Lots of info and cool shirts and food. You could do the applicable trails in a couple hours but may want more time to check out the area.|

Awesome. That's exactly what I was hoping for. My Hankooks are the same (32") stock size that came on it. Just a little more capable A/T tire.
If we're just riding, not stopping to eat or relax, any guess as to how much time would be ideal to set aside? Or is it more of a thing where it just depends how long you want to spend there?

|Kevin wade||I was there with a tj that had 32 inch tires. The trails are marked and you can have lots of fun without hurting anything. It's a cool and beautiful area. My son and I are going again in my new jk.|

Visiting NC (from Ohio) next week for family reunion. Driving 2 month old, nearly stock JKU Sport. Only functional mod is swapping stock SRAs with a set of Hankook Dynapro ATMs. No winch. No lift. Etc. Never been off-road. There would be 4 occupants in my Jeep. No second vehicle to serve as our companion.
Would I be too ambitious/naive to go to Uwharrie and try to spend a couple/few hours enjoying the trails? I don't want to do rock crawling or go through mud/water up to the doors. I just want to ride on some trails and not destroy my Jeep.
I'll be the first to admit that I know nothing about Uwharrie except it's 1 1/2 hours from my cousin's house, it's a 50,000 acre forrest, and there are logging trails.
This is my rig:
