As we've never been, can I assume that means, come through the gate, turn left, and find the zip line? 
Pay down at the bottom
go up the hill
to the left is parking and zip line
to the right is more parking, bathrooms

And be prepared, you will think you may be lost as you come into the park through a neighborhood.  I know the first time I went to Chocco I was sure my GPS had gone haywire, but sure enough you will find the entrance if you follow the GPS.

Don't speed when you come into the town of Jacksonville. It's a small college town and real low speed limit areas

Roger that... I usually just assume that with any small town.  Especially with out of state plates dragging the buggy along...

I missed the entrance last time... you'll be looking for an address that doesn't exist. Instead of a driveway/mailbox with the number on it, it's a short road that goes by another name which looks like it dead-ends, but the park entrance is just beyond the end of the road.

You can use the address on the website.  It takes you to the house on the corner of the road you turn on to get to the park.

Also, another tip - if you have 4hi on the tow rig, you may want to engage that before you go up that hill to the parking.  Don't be shy with the gas either.  Steep gravel road.

Unless you have a duramax. If so just drive as you normally would and all will be ok. JK I put mine in 4hi when we went in june.

Yes in my old Powerstroke found out my 4 wheel
drive didn't work on that hill.....started sliding
backwards. Truck, trailer and Jeep had to be pulled
up.

I am hopeful that my new ORI strut will be in just in time for me to install it so I can go on this trip.  I should have the front end fixed later this week and I'll figure out the caliper bolts sometime this weekend...that just leaves the strut as my final problem area...I hope!  I'll only do a day trip, and since i am getting in from a trip to Asheville on Friday evening, I might be late so I'll catch y'all on channel 7, if that happens.
