Hey guys, i was wonder if any of you guys knew of any trails around Boone that a stock 06 wrangler can go on. I just got my jeep and am wanting to have some fun with it.
Also if anyone know of the trail off of Richland road from 321. i went to look for it but when i got about 5 miles down richland road it turned into a private drive way.
any help would be tons of help!!

Richlands road is a Forest Service road and legal to drive on as long as you stay ON THE ROAD. This means the creek and the "playground" are off limits and private property. If you are off the road/trail by more that 15 feet your are trasspassing. Basically to legally ride Richlands road is a dirt road.
A stock anything can manover this trail legally.

We took our stock jeep out to Uwharrie National Forest and it did pretty good out there. Believe it is only a couple hours from you. Also has great camping there to make a weekend out of it.

yeah, Uwharrie is where a lot of people have suggested for me to go. im definitely considering going there soon once i get a break from college. i heard there are some great trails.
i wish i could find trials similar to those trails out in the west where you can so nothing but mountains and dirt trails everywhere, thats the trailing im really wanting to get into. ive only had my jeep for about a month, its been my dream car since i seen it on the movie Jurassic park, but ive been dying to earn my Trail Rated Badge. and i really want to do some sliding in the muddle a little also

Uwharrie is perfect for your stock Jeep. If you are new I would stay away from the Dickey Bell trail, and Daniel, but everything else is fairly easy. I just came back from a weekend trip yesterday, and my 'lil 90 YJ with 33's went everywhere with no issues.
The trails are wide and there is something for everyone. Better hurry they close in December:thumb:

10-08-2012 12:35 PM
It was pretty fun, that first rock was tricky like you said but once i figured out the line i needed to take it went great with no problem. the trail is a lot longer than i expected but your directions were perfect, i made it out fine.
im wanting to go the weekend of the 20th and the 21st.
hopefully i can get a group from here to go also

Fishing in an old thread in case any of you still monitor it.
Anyone riding this coming weekend, May 4-5 , in the Boone area? I may be up there and looking for some wheeling partners.
