    Are the trails open? I heard a while back that everything was closing.

    I've been to Tellico three times over the years in a built jeep. The trails change (get worse) a lot from year to year. There's not many trails for stockers and beginners.
    Here's a map of the trail system.
    http://www.tellico4x4.com/map1.htm
    From what I remember, trail 1 & 4 are the only true EASY trails. Everything else, you'd be lucky to get through with 33's and atleast one locker.
    If you go there....DO NOT go alone!!! Have another vehicle with you!!! Those trails are not for the faint at heart nor the un-prepared.

    Have you looked into other offroad parks down that area? THere's a couple of 'em....Search google...

    Do some more research and check out some local Tennesse clubs. You're far better off going out with a club who has experience and knows the trails.

    There were some pics floating around showing parts being paved and graded. With my Jeep in a prior life we went there frequently, that was a beautiful place with something for every skill level.

    Yep it's BS but in defense of the forest service we have had a lot of rain this year so erosion is horrible but they could open up other trail's or fire road's but we have an over abundance of envirementalist's here in WNC so I doubt that will happen wish they would go to back out west and try to save some venomus reptiles.

    Yup, Go visit Hot Springs in Madison County. Hell, even Asheville. Then the reasoning for all of this environmental hoopla will make perfect sense.

    It's only going to get worse in Asheville. Two people who are very pro-environmental were elected.

    Tree hugger's and Liberal's wish they would go to California.

    I forgot Instead of going to tellico you can go to coal sumthing in east tn near knoxville shouldn't take long to get there it's all interstate instead of highway 64 it take's me 1 /1/2 hour's to get to tellico and 2 to knoxville so and what I've herd from friend's that atv it's kick ass wheeling.

    Yeah, it is pretty bad there. And downtown at Prichard park is usually a cess pool. Stinky hippies.

    Can any of these places be driven by just one single truck? I want to go with my gf with just my truck alone but I'm concerned about getting stuck and not have a backup vehicle. How difficult are the trails?

    There's a local group probably going to Gulches in the next couple months, haven't nailed down a date yet. Uwharrie is your best bet but they aren't open til April. Anything else will be at least a weekend trip.

    If you really get the urge you can hit some 2 tracks on base. Just stay out of the mud. If you get stuck PM me.
