My first trip to Uwharrie!
Hey everyone, I am finally planning on making it up to Uwharrie next weekend with a local 4x4 club. Can't wait to go! Anyone have any suggestions for the trip? Trails to hit, or avoid? We're staying on Arrowhead, I don't know if that matters. Anyway if anyone else wants to join, the more the merrier! Wouldn't mind meeting some forum members anyway!

What sort of mods does your Jeep have? I've done almost every trail there except Dicky Bell and Dutch John, Daniel was pretty fun.

The_Jode 07-05-2012 09:50 AM

Right now all I am working with is a 2004 Rubicon with a Fabtech 6" Long Arm suspension lift. 35" Bfgoodrich AT, and a ZJ steering conversion. No aftermarket bumbers or armor or anything else.

u will do well on all the trails there at Uwharrie. If u see something over ur head, just go around it. And always remember that u have to drive that jeep home.

ShowroomShine 07-06-2012 07:15 PM

Psh yeah, your jeep is probably more capable than mine and mine did everything there. I took an easy line around the last obstacle on daniel and kodak.

We made our first trip out on Thursday, it was HOT, nobody on the trails at all, it was perfect...I am not sure how they rate thier trails, but we didnt do Daniel or Kodiak. Maybe next time, and its a stock 11 Wrangler


The_Jode 07-08-2012 10:45 AM

Sweet! Well the only thing im worried about is that theres a chance of thunderstorms all next week around Uwharrie. I was excited to do some actual trail riding instead of the "mudding" thats only available around me, but I heard that once it rains there, it becomes a clay mud mess! lol Hopefully I can Escape it.

Kernal Clink 07-09-2012 07:58 PM

It does. And it gets super slick too. Don't let it soak your hopes though. The trails really suck when it's dry. The dust is terrible and worse than the mud IMO. I may be down there myself if things work out.

Vulcan Classic 07-10-2012 04:52 PM

Pray for rain! We were down there this past weekend Thurs-Sat, bone dry, the dust was unbearable and the place was like a ghost town, not to mention the 100+ heat!!

It's so dry down there that only a monsoon would make it excessively muddy, LOL! A few showers would help; the FS roads are just unbearable right now

Coasttrash 07-11-2012 02:41 AM

I am driving 11hrs thursday to spend the weekend up there ha! I am staying at arrowhead as well

The_Jode 07-12-2012 08:10 AM

Haha thats awesome Coast! We have about 10 rigs going, and were staying from campsite 39-46ish... Im not sure waht trails were doing but youre more than welcome to ride with us! The more the marrier imo!

Coasttrash 07-12-2012 09:23 AM

Yeah man that sounds great we are at site 28. We are on the road now and are gonna drive until we get tired ha

The_Jode 07-12-2012 11:10 AM

Haha awesome, safe drive then. Hope to see you out there.

Coasttrash 07-12-2012 10:22 PM

We made it to Greenville SC today. So a short drive to uwharrie in the morning. Is anybody going to be there tomorrow?

Pullsout 07-13-2012 03:23 AM

Me and the misses will be there later this after noon

The_Jode 07-13-2012 07:09 AM

Most of the crew im convoying is leaving the Jacksonville area around 230, so we should be there around 6ish... We'd be leaving earlier but I have to do a "final audit" for the marine corps since im all but out... well see you there tonight! Can't miss my jeep its a big lime green rubi so if you see me, feel free to flag me down. Otherwise once we get settled in I'll mosey on down to your site! Happy Trails!

Coasttrash 07-13-2012 09:27 AM

Sounds good you can't miss our tent it's a 40 something year old tent that's yellow ha hopefully it won't leak

MikeLisa 07-13-2012 01:46 PM

You shouldn't need any of it if you are not riding alone.

Many stock vehicles ride there no problem. Just pick liones that suit your rig.

jwhite727 07-15-2012 08:33 PM

if any of you guys went trailing with me or the jode please email so we can swap pics/vids.

Coasttrash 07-15-2012 09:43 PM

I am typing this in the tent trying not to sweat it was good riding with yall (silver tj). When ever we get home I will email yall the pictures and videos. Did yall do all of Daniel thus morning? Dad and I did the whole trail going towards the parking lot off Dutch John I think that was the trail.

Pullsout 07-15-2012 11:05 PM

Coasttrash 07-16-2012 10:57 AM

The_Jode 07-18-2012 09:34 PM

Glad to hear you made it back safe Coast! How was the Braves game?

Coasttrash 07-18-2012 09:39 PM

Braves got smoked 9-0 but we got great seats pretty close to the field like 17th row close to home plate. The only videos I got was of Ivan's JK, the YJ nathan i think, and Edgar? black JK not many pictures of anybody else. Dad took a bunch Sunday going through dutch john and daniel.

The_Jode 07-18-2012 09:45 PM

Yup, you got them all right! Did you do all of Daniel? we only had time to go up the backside. Were all still compiling our videos and pictures, but I'll post them when theyre all together.
