Florida Jeeper this Sunday at Beasley, anyone want to join?
« on: April 02, 2018, 11:21:11 AM »
Hey there, got my 13 JKU Rubicon with 35's and 2.5" lift (and winch/recovery gear). Going to be in town all day Sunday meeting a buddy who is buying a motorcycle in Atlanta and driving back to OH Monday. (staying near Blue Ridge, GA Saturday and Sunday night). When I booked the trip a while ago I thought it would be alot warmer.

Are there places to go? Can anyone recommend a place to ride? Since I am from Florida all I know is mud and sand. Really want to do some rocky trails (nothing too advanced as I need to have the Jeep in good enough shape to drive to Massachusetts monday for work). Ideally a trail that has some sort of great view along the way.

Anyone care to join? Would love the company and local experience. Otherwise any recommendations where to go? Doesn't need to be Blue Ridge, just needs to be within round trip driving distance of it.

That is what I found recently too, have you been up there lately? Is it ready to ride given recent weather and rain forecasted for mid week?

you will need to call the Forest Service #, the gate is closed if the weather is bad, if its open you will be fine.

Starting to think adventure park but that drive round trip is a little more than I would rather do. Ill call the forest service and see if they will open or not as well.

Can anyone speak to if Beasley Knob is easy, moderate, or hard to drive?

Trey is still closed. Beasley is easy, stay away from 93b unless you locked front and rear and know how to drive
