I live on the kennesaw Woodstock line. We just bought our Jeep a month ago. Never been off-roading. My wife and I would love to join another group of experienced riders for us to follow. My email is [email protected]. thanks and we look forward to riding with y'all.

Took the wifey on the power lines between Sugarloaf Pkwy and Suwannee this past Sunday. This was just enough to get my JK a little muddy and ensure my wife was comfortable with going off-road. We had a blast. Yes, yes, I know.... LAME! But it was fun and a good intro. Wifey even said she wants to do more next time so now I'm looking for someone to tag along with the next time you guys plan a day trip somewhere to N. GA or somewhere else fairly close.
Could you tell me how to get there? I am trying to head out in the afternoon. Just going with a buddy.

On second thought, I may have actually found it by chance on google maps...do you enter by purcell road?

Dirt Oval

if you're looking for a good place to get a little mud on the tires, there's a big dirt lot in the woods off of GA92. its just next to the lifetime fitness, across the street from the Woodlands neighborhood. Theres a bumpy oval track, a couple jumps and mud pits, and a steep loose dirt hill to climb up.

There is a place called union grove down in lithonia. Legality is debated though. I know tons of people that go there on like a weekly basis, but when i went there, the cops told me to leave. . . along with the 7 cruisers, 4 bikes and one charger awaiting me at the gate. Someone called the police previous to the event though, and i WAS the only one dumb enough to show up, even though someone threatened to phone them.

Awesome! Good that your fiancee had a blast too... that could be a deal killer if she didn't. :)

Also, do you have a location for the Charles Creek road? If so, I'll add it to the list.

I know this is an old thread (lol, I started reading it just now and saw things like, "Let's meet up next Wednesday at the so-and-so" and started getting excited. Then saw it was from 2011! :))

Anyway, funny story about the Sugar Hill power lines. I am shopping for my Wrangler in March. I have a fatherless kid I mentor every week who lives in Sugar Hill. So I'm driving with him towards Mall of Ga and see a Jeep dealer. Stop in and they have a JK 3.6 with 6 speed manual, which I haven't been able to find anywhere for a test drive -- all autos.

Salesman tosses me the keys, and me and the boy go for a test drive. We're just cruising around the backstreets, paying no attention to things (I don't know the area all that well.) Come out at a parking lot next to the big old building that used to be a foundry or mill or something and is now a collection of shops, I guess. I turn into the parking lot and just cruise through. It's dark out, raining slightly, parking lot empty.

I cruise to the back of it, notice a slight part in the bushes. I nose the Jeep up into it and suddenly, like the Pevensie children stepping through the Wardrobe and into Narnia, I found myself in an off-road wonderland! :) I started easing down into the dirt and went about halfway down the first hill before realizing I was going to make a terrible mess of somebody else's Jeep and I didn't want to do that.

So I took it back and bought my own from him. On the way home from picking it up (I had to order so didn't get it till May 3) my first stop was at the power lines! Been back several times since. I like most of it, but that narrow bridge at the low point, when it's wet, pretty easy to slide off sideways and have to winch yourself out. (Just sayin'... :whistling:

Got my Jeep in March (06' Rubi), live in Lawrenceville. Only place I've gone so far is Tray Mountain in Helen. Love that area, but would like something closer to home when I need my mud/trail fix. lol Also, kind of new to the area, Only lived here a little over a year. So any trail locations, info, etc.... would be awesome guys! Thanks!!! email me: [email protected]

I want to know more about the "powerlines" area. Wife does our grocery shopping there at the Wal-Mart between Sugarloaf & L'Ville Suwanee... it's around that area right? Where would I find an entrance? Is it legal?
Thanks guys!

I think you may be talking about something that will be on the right if you're driving towards that walmart from old norcross on Lville Suwanee. If that's what you're talking about then I've driven past it for years always curious about what's back there. Satellite image indicates that there's very little. Honestly it's probably not legal and that's why I've never ventured back there. Other trails in the Hiawasee area are Charlie's creek and bell Mtn. Near dawsonville there is sheeps wallow. Do a quick search and you'll find info about them. The Jeeps on Trails website has them documented as well.

Edit: as far as gwinnett goes, there's really nothing that's legal.
