Looking up upper two

Top of upper two

This is trail one right along side of the creek. There was alot of silt flowing down the road.

Middle of lower two. You can just barely tell where the ledge is.

This is pretty much what every trail looks like. Trees down, grass planted and sloped. It would be almost impossible to use these trails for anything else but to hike. Even that was hard.

Looking up from the bottom of Slick Rock.


Ledge top of Slick Rock.

Anyways this is what I did today. It took me a few hours , but an easy day hike for anyone that is mostly in shape.

Thanks for the pictures, Billy! Very upsetting to see the condition of Tellico. This is where I started wheeling in the late 90's... my family spent many a weekend in those woods. GREAT memories.

It would take a lot of time and work to get it back into ride-able conditions.

If it ever manages to reopen I know some people who would donate significant money and support to SFWDA and help maintain this amazing area.

LYIN' KING They were a "tool" and will not now stand in the way of a job their backers consider well done.

yellowxj Thanks so much for the pictures! I always have wondered what it looked like since the last time I was there.

zeke6785 Always wanted to go wheel Tellico. I remember watching the old Off Highway Adventures with Rick Russel with my dad when I was younger. Then seeing it on Xtreme 4x4 made me wanna go there even more. This is so sad to hear/see.

bobtail82 We just drove thru there yesterday. No construction going on nor equipment in the area. The road is not finished, looks like they just ran out of money and abandoned the project.
The old switchbacks are still open and drivable, just the surrounding mountain side tore all to hell
04-18-2012 04:27 AM
YellowjeepCj No word yet on a rescheduled hearing date. I will try to get an update on when we think we will know something this week.
04-12-2012 12:34 PM
mxcr You can hike anywhere in the Nantahala Forest without a problem..
Where to park , would depend on what section you wanted to go to.

I would like to do this hike for old times sake. Does anyone know the best place to park for a hike of the old Tellico trails.....trial 1 side (NC) or compground (TN) side? Will I be busted by rangers and/or Trouts Unlimited guys?

I'm sure you would have posted if you know, but is there any update on the date?
