Where is Wilsons creek? If it's not too far out, then I'm in.@Tank the Jeep
I am up for a Hurricane trip once spring arrives.
Also, I hope to have some easy rides for folks who want to run the fire roads around Wilsons Creek area. The rides will include some relatively short, easy/medium hikes for those who are interested. Hikes will include waterfalls and scenic views.
I really want to learn more about this area. I tend to head to Brevard and Old Fort, but am actually closer to the Wilsons Creek area and would love to understand the forest roads / dirt roads that would be fun to explore.@Tank the Jeep
Wilsons Creeks is North of Hickory and Lenior.
Wilsons Creek is also designated a wild and scenic river.
The headwaters for Wilsons Creek are up in the Grandfather Mnt area and the Blueridge Parkway (BP).
From Charlotte, go North on Hwy 321 N.
Once in Lenoir, go North West.
There are several fire roads to get from Wilsons creek area to the BP or Blocking Rock NC.
There is an amazing amount of trails, hiking, water falls, scenic views, lakes, etc. all in that area.
Also, some of the best mountain biking and road biking in NC is in that general area.
That’s three of us. sounds like a wheeling trip when it warms up a little.I really want to learn more about this area. I tend to head to Brevard and Old Fort, but am actually closer to the Wilsons Creek area and would love to understand the forest roads / dirt roads that would be fun to explore.
If you are interested in the chat group where we plan outings in/around NC just message me. Include your full name and cell phone number and I will get you added. Really good group of guys/gals. All experience levels welcome.Just picked up a new Jeep and I would love to check out some trails in NC. I had a TJ about 15 years ago when I lived in Maryland but I have no clue where to wheel around here.
I already added 315/70/17 BFG KO2's to the stock wheels and got a Tazer Mini to correct the speedometer and tweak a few other things.Familiar with some of the spots here but definitely not all. Wish we lived closer to the mountains, not a huge fan of Durham.... Used to live up in Hendersonville when younger and I love the sound of exploring forest roads in Pisgah. My wife and I have been considering heading towards the mountains to seek out some snow soon.
@SG19JLUR Any plans for customizing the new jeep yet?
That looks awesome. We have 3 kids...ages 3, 5, and 8. Do you think this is something they could handle? We've been on a few hiking trips but it was pretty smooth terrain.@SG19JLUR,
There's a GroupMe for folks who live in your area. One of the guys who runs it is on this forum and will likely send you an invite soon.
Also, most weekends, I'm either hiking, mnt biking, road biking, kayaking etc. in the Wilsons Creek area or higher in elevations in the Grandfather Mnt area. Often I'm traveling on the fire roads to get from point A to B in the Wilsons/Grandfather Mnt areas. If interested in one of those trips, you are always welcome to PM me and see if one of the outdoor adventures would be of interest. Here's a couple of shots of a new-to-me trail found this past weekend, Woodruff Ridge.
