Looking for good trail riding in the southeast

Me and some friends have rail buggies (think VW style rather than rock bouncer). We mainly ride in the national forest here in Florida, but obviously would love to go some new places. Most of the southeast seems to either be rock crawling or trails limited to side by sides. Are there any good trail riding spots in the southeast that allow street legal buggies to ride there? Something like Hatfield-McCoy, but for buggies.

There are a ton of rail buggies that ride at Rush Offload in Rush, KY. Its probably a pretty long haul for you but the park is worth it. If I'm not mistaken its 7,000 acres.

Every year when we go to Harlan KY we see a group of vw style sand rail buggies. The place is so big you can take 2 or 3 days easy and just ride the main gravel connector trails which can be steep and loose gravel. Plus a majority of the rock crawling trails and obstacles are just off the main connector trails. You can pull over and watch some of that.

Awesome, thanks guys. I'm planning to build a truggy (rail buggy style frame with front mounted LS/Auto and rear solid axle). It will be 2wd though, so it wont be great at rock crawling. I just really hate to tear my stuff up too, which is why we like fast trail riding. I've heard of both places, so I'll be sure to put them on my list.

Windrock fa sure, like many have already suggested. Land between the lakes (LBL) in Kentucky is rail buggy friendly as well.
