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.

Unfortunately, Slade is under attack just like Tellico.


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.

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.

Brian

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!

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.

It is pretty bad. I done it last summer by myself going in on the side farthest away from hwy 116 and coming out right at hwy116. Its straight up and down on the back side. I broke an axle on the way up and had to winch once but other than that I made it pretty easily. Your rig better be in tip top shape 110% to even think about atomic ridge.

The places are completely different in spirit as well as logistically, thus they are not truly comparable. At Gray Rock the trailer is always near; at Tellico the trailer was at least a few miles away.

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.

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……..

I have wheeled Tellico several times. I am one of the local gurus of Harlan. Their will never be anything like Tellico.
The closest thing in mind to compare to is slade.
