Uwharrie Off Road Trail Adventure

Expect the Unexpected! 


My Jeep climbing up a muddy trail


Expect the unexpected is something every off-roader should be prepared for when they hit the trails. It's one thing I learned when I wheeled in Uwharrie during the Carolina Trails Off Road Spring Invasion IN 2019.

My Jeep on Dickey Bell Trail

The last time wheeled at Uwharrie, I wheeled the three "D" trails; Dickey Bell, Dutch John and Daniel. Those three trails are the most difficult trails at Uwharrie National Forest. This time I wheeled the other trails which are easy to moderate. 


My Jeep on a muddy trail


The rains in the area days before the event created very slick, slippery red clay covered trails. Rain can make an easy trail difficult. The first time I was on the trails they were dry and dusty which allowed for good traction. Not this time and it became a huge learning experience for me.  


My Jeep trying to get traction on a muddy trail

I was very frustrated on parts of the trails because my Jeep was getting no traction. I had to be towed on one trail where my driver's side tire kept slipping into a two foot rut. Several other off-roaders made it thru, but they had their throttle timing down to a tee. Something I needed to work on.

Selfie with my muddy Jeep

It took a few slick trails to get used to hitting that skinny pedal harder than I am used too. I am usually crawling up rocks not muddy slick trails. By the end of the day I was doing pretty good.
