    Any movement on your order? Mine has only been 9 days or so, so I'm not expecting much, but today is a month for you.

    If you bought that one in Kernersville, I might have taken that on a test drive before I settled on the one I bought. Thumbs up!

    Anyone know of any good trails near the Triad? I want to build up experience with my Jeep before going to Uwharrie.

    Honestly, man, Uwharrie is a great place to practice. 80% of the trails are perfectly fine for a stock Jeep. You can do all the trails with a stock Jeep, but it depends on your confidence factor. I took my 2014 JKU Rubi through each trail, to include Daniel up and down. There's a very difficult, prupose built rig trail on daniel on the L/H side as you go down towards the entrance to it. There's another path your jeep will do fine going down though. The shelf at the very bottom is probably the sketchiest part, but otherwise, you'd do great to practice out there. Hit me up if you ever want to go. I sold my JK and have a JL on order, but I'll meet you there on the KTM and spot for you. I'm always looking for an excuse to go ride!

    I'm in Chapel Hill. Sting-Gray on order. I was raised in Winston-Salem and I still get back there a couple of times each month. There are tons of NC members on this forum.

    Troy from Raleigh. Just picked mine up today.

    So what are the good trails at uwharrie to start with? What to avoid until you get a bit more comfortable?

    Checking out the trail map below from Uwharrie, you'll want to stay away from Daniel and Dickey Bell. They're all doable, but if you want to practice and have a good time, you can do any of the rest. The trails aren't difficult and there's plenty of opportunity to either go around larger obstacles or points in the trail to turn around and go the other way if you feel uncomfortable. Don't be afraid to get out there with your new Jeep though. The machine will do great. There are some spots where you'll use the skid plates even on the easiest trails. Either way, you'll have a blast.

    Any of the parking areas on 553 or 576 are good places to enter the trails. upload_2018-3-23_8-58-39.png
