Hey Big, y’all know we have some real good Swamp Krawl-n in Central Florida, u know up-n-down all those sand hills with tea water in between them, if you want to wheel for hours go to Grand County Utah / aka Moab……….
Harlan County reminds me of Murphy and the Beaver Dam Area / aka Tellico back in the early to mid seventies when it was still the frontier of wheel-n, give it a few more years for it too become well worn with several decades of traffic, and the amenities have not caught up yet……..

|bjordan||I never had chance to run tellico, and Harlan is on the bucket list but I hit gore va a few times a year. You have to go during an event since it is not open 365 to jeeps but is a great park with tough trails, great views, and a few trails are miles from the trailer. Can anyone compare tellico and Harlan to gore? Gore events are put on by big dog off road.|

|HDandJeepman||I've been going to Windrock and Harlen for years, there both great. Atomic hill has been extreme buggies only for a few years. There is another place between them called Euclid Offroad that has as or more extreme obstacles than both. The plus is that is privately owned and all trails are within a mile. If you break your rig in two its not that bad to get it loaded since they have a large tractor to help. Check out there web site. The closest to Tellico is Greyrock in Al. hands down. Its right above Birmingham. You can't beat it if you can get invited. Not all of it is as nice as Tellico but some of it is better. I still miss Tellico. Hope you guys had fun up here.|

Cant wait for Nov to get here. Joe, I promise you wont be disappointed...... I have never been to Tellico, but been to Harlan 4-5 times now and every time we try something new. I wish I could find a good trail map online.
Get your rig ready..make sure you pack your balls too.
oh ya....we have done Atomic Ridge as well. that didnt turn out well, started it after lunch....got back to the hotel around 1am....2 rigs still on the mountain. barely enough cell service to call mountain rescue. LOL great weekend!

So, some enterprising PBBer needs to make some T-chirts with a map of the trails printed on it upside down. so you can just look down and see it.

|jodyfj40||If you want that I don't know if i'll make it home tonight feeling, then try Atomic ridge at coal creek. It's not the longest trail i've ever riding but if you manage to complete it in one piece its at least a 45 minute ride back to camp. I had that feeling you are talking about over 4th of july when me and brother decided it would be a good idea to do an extreme trail on our razors not knowing what was ahead of us lol. Coal creek and Black mountain are both large parks and I would not want to be broken down on the other side of either one.|

Never been to windrock. I've heard there are a couple difficult trails.
Callalantee was good, but will never reopen. There is a new park opening in Mtn City that is close to callalantee
Harlan is the new tellico.

|Ghost||Harlan is the closest to Tellico that I have found. It is better in some ways and nto as good in others. Give it a try I think you will like it.|

Just got back from a trip to Harlan a few weeks ago. It was our first trip and we had a blast. Good trails from easy to moderate, nothing too severe.
Uhwarrie is only 1.5hrs away for me so we ride there often. It's very small and only good for a day trip. It's not a destination spot if you have to drive a long distance to get there. Easy to semi tuff trails.
Windrock, TN - Ride for days and never see the same trail twice, easy to severe pucker factor.
Callalantee, TN - Now closed but was my favorite by far. Most beautiful scenery and everything from easy to no f--way. I've heard rumors it might reopen.

I guess the thrill of, "will I make it out tonight" kind of thing.
|09-08-2012 07:29 PM|
Im in the minority. I like gravel roads within close proximity to the obstacle. Good for spectators and recovery.
I have wheeled Tellico and Harlan. They are very similar.

|bigford||Looks like a few of us may try to get Harlan Nov 7-12th I'll try to make this but if I can't I know there will be several others from Florida who will.|

|LR3||I never got a chance to wheel Tellico, so take my suggestion with a grain of salt, but I know that there are a few places in Tennessee and North Carolina. The ones that stand out in my mind are Aetna, Prentice Cooper, which are in TN, and Uwharrie in NC. I have wheeled Aetna, but from what I have seen from the other two as far as documentation goes, they seem to offer something for everyone.|

Unfortunately, Slade is under attack just like Tellico.
|08-29-2012 01:24 PM|
For those folks that never wheeled Tellico ,,, Harlan is the closest thing I know of to compare it to.
LOVE wheelin Harlan ,,,, but Iv,e never had that "DAMN WERE A LONG WAY FROM CAMP TO BE THIS BROKE EPISODE" there.

Harlan & Windrock are both nice - but both are designed with easy roads t get around the bulk of the park which the harder trails shoot off of. I am not aware of any park in this area with truly difficult network of trails that don't have pretty easy access roads linking the trails together.
I'd love to find a park that could build a trail you actually are ON THE TRAIL for a couple of hours, without having easy cut-outs to gravel.

I went to harlan this past year and I've not been to a place similar since. It reminds me of the woods and trails of Tellico with Windrock's rocks. If that makes sense. The mud is similar to Tellico too.
|08-27-2012 08:05 PM|
|mean green||Harlan is still much more easy to get around then Tellico was. You can get out in a hurry if you need to. I'm going to Windrock for the first time this weekend and it sure sounds alot like Tellico. I love Harlan and go multiple times every year but to me, its not totally like Tellico. You had to be committed to the trail at Tellico. Harlan has little trails all over the place. Damn I sure miss those hills.|
