I'll try to make it, if I don't have to work that weekend, some other guys I know are also planning a trip there that same weekend!

Last time I went to Uwharrie my GPS took me one way going down from Raleigh and another coming home...ugh. Whats the quickest most direct route from here?

Kspike 08-16-2010 11:58 AM

I'm no good with directions, sorry. On the weekends I'm usually the passenger and don't really pay attention. As I live in Asheboro, I do remember that we take highway 49 most of the way. I'll ask later and see if I can be of more help. Wavey :D

^^^^Uwharrie NF Recreation Guide

ok the trail Jammers are putting this on the back burner b/c with have the Flats the weekend after and a Mtn City Callalantee Trip at the end of sept/oct date not set yet.

I've never been to Uwarrie but lived in NC all my life and wanted to go. The more I talk with guys that have been there the consensus is it is a very beginner trail.

With that being said, it's 2.5 hrs from me and now I'm not positive now I want to spend the trip down. Carolina Trailblazers will be there but I'm not familiar with anyone in their club.

Unless we can get a group together I might bow out so please tell me if your positive you want to go.

A little birdie told me that that is opening weekend for hunting season as well.........

:eek: no thanks to any "more" bullet holes in my jeep.

I've been, it's a fun trail, very well mapped out and courses for all levels. I'm definitley down if I dont have to ship anytime soon, waiting on that word as I type. I'm also on nc4x4 forum and a few of them were talking about going up there for Laborday weekend.
Callentte is great too, beautiful drive up there from Raleigh. There are roosters that live next door to the camp ground tho so no oversleeping LOL.

It is Hwy 64 to Hwy 49 to Hwy 109.

Kspike 08-17-2010 11:36 PM

Now that rings a bell! I can get myself to the lake but no good at telling others. Just follow me.

EdJonesJeeper 08-20-2010 06:26 PM

Kspike 08-20-2010 08:28 PM

Kspike 08-20-2010 08:40 PM

What time will you be going? I may be able to meet you there. Are you going with other people?

Kspike 08-20-2010 09:12 PM

That would be great but I'm not sure of time. Meeting someone that is coming up from Carolina beach and he is going to call when he gets to bisco. If you want, pm me with your phone and i'll give you a call when I have details. Just a small group of us but all are extremely experienced with uwharrie trails.

harwa004 08-20-2010 09:20 PM

I am headed the OTHER direction tomorrow--to the coast. Otherwise, I would be there!

Adam H 08-21-2010 10:02 PM

I doubt I'll go. I flipped my motorcycle Wednesday morning and broke my collar bone. I doubt I'll want to try wheeling a stick shift.

ESP123, don't worry. Gun season won't come in until October. You'll just have to worry about arrow holes.

Shadeemry 08-22-2010 02:25 AM

I'm from Raleigh, was wondering about those trails, what kinda mods if any are recommended? I have a yj 95 with some mods on it.

Kspike 08-22-2010 09:28 AM

I went yesterday and had a fantastic time! Wheeled every trail in my stock jk except the front side of the "Daniel" trail. Only scrubbed the skid plates twice. It rained here all day on Thursday so there was plenty of mud and dust was minimal. Perfect day. Most of the really difficult spots on the trail have a bypass around them but it is extremely rocky so make sure you have a spare.

As for lift, jk is stock on 32 inch bcc m/t. No scrubbing. We took my stock t/j last year and hit just about everything on the trail. A minimal lift would have been perfect.

Working on downloading photos and will post soon.

Kspike 08-22-2010 12:14 PM

Posted pics on the trail forum.

EdJonesJeeper 08-25-2010 08:30 AM
