yeah...about that...im kind of a newb on here but the pictures can be found on myspace at www.myspace.com/rebelproud4x4, and id probably reccomend 33s at least...but if somebodys got a fair amount of experience there are ways to go around most obstacles with 31s. besides that, LOTS of rocks from basketball to truck hood sizes, some 2-4 ft deep mud, and one helluva cool hillclimb. there'll be an optional trip afterward where im gonna be exploring some more trails i found on a map in the same area, a few look promising. hopefully all will go well since its mah b-day weekend (no mud baths please...i know its coming) anditll be a good time. there are a few campsites along the way for breaks also.

Would be easier for me to meet you at the Harmon Den exit if that would be cool?

the thing is the trail just goes right off the interstate and it would be before harmon den for me. but if you wanna meet me at fines creek exit 15 that would work. its just a lil bit up the road.

yeah its hurricane. doesnt matter. the first campsite isnt too far if you wanna meet there, or fines creek since youll have to get off there and turn around anyway.

its pretty cool, nothin too crazy. the biggest thing is that its all unmaintained FSR, and its a shame ive went in there a couple times and hauled out a bronco-load of other peoples trash and shit.

we actually usually come out on the other end. we're coming out the same way this time, but theres nowhere to park a trailer 'cause its a dirt road that turns directly off the interstate. guardrails on both sides.

you might be disappointed. I turkey hunt back there and the road/trail isn't what it used to be. Unless they've opened up some new spots I'm not aware of I'm pretty sure you're over built.

you could always park trailers off the Harmen Den exit at one of the big campsites and drive up to Max Patch then go down Hurricane. Hit the highway and drive 1 mile. The Hurricane exit is at MM8 and the exit is at MM7 if I remember correctly.

if you are planning on towing something there you WILL be dissapointed. Its a cool place but its more of an expedition style trip in a stockish rig. I took my z71 tahoe on 285 bfg at's all through there and the old lady drove the whole time. It was a good experience and fun but not a trip for a untagged rig that needs to be towed there in my opinion. These are considered roads and if you in an untagged rig you will get busted.

this area is great for expedition riding and camping.

also its prob not a good idea to bring a bunch of rigs at one time or tear the land up, we dont want it going the way of cullowhee.
