I've never been to Windrock and would be interested in going up there at some point.

Go with someone who knows the park, otherwise you could spend a lot of time leaf looking and not doing any real wheeling.  Ask me how I know :)

LOL This is the reason I haven't been. Thanks! :)


I think I'll have better luck recruiting for a day trip instead of the long hauls. I definitely want to make it to Windrock this year so we are going to save that one and try to make the scheduled ride for July.

AOP has the Gambler 500 scheduled for March 30th. I'm assuming that's the "500 miles in a $500 car" thing but could not find a lot of info on it. So AOP may be out.

I'm game for Gulches, just realized I've never been there either. Not sure why since it's so close. But I agree, I would want to make sure the conditions are good before heading over there which might mean no rain between now and then.

Gulches is a 4 hour drive for me. Day trip wouldn't be feasible.
If at once you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

I would most likely be interested in a day trip on the 30th, just gotta figure out when my older son leaves with his friend for spring break.  Chocco is always an easy one from metro ATL and dries out well, so that gets my vote.  I'm gonna take it easy for a while with my stock axle shafts on 37s so a mild trip would be great.  I have a buddy with a Taco on 285 Coopers that might be able to join as well, he isn't looking for anything difficult.

Thereís been a couple folks throw around Chocco and that might be a better bet than Gulches this early in the season. I am game.

That's better for me, but I'm still not committed.

He asks for a $40 donation per truck. Passengers included.
He raised the price for trucks because of trail erosion/maintenance.
I'll meet you guys there, but can also pm the gate code in case you get there before me.

As an aside, he said he'd open the gate for the club any time there are 5 or more trucks...

Always weather permitting here, when it's really wet the trails are off limits.

If Iím being honest, initially that $40 seems a little steep for half-day of wheeling but I have never been so canít say if itís worth it. Iíd like to come check the place out and Iím sure we could get 5 rigs in on it. Can you confirm that we can ride on the 30th, weather permitting? Then we will get a ride check-in started. Thanks for your willingness to help get us in there.

Might as well just do some Forrest roads if youíre going to go to Black Moose.

I agree $40 is sort of steep. But its close.
Just past the outlet mall in Dawsonville.

And there are some legit obstacles, rocks & hills that are quite fun.

Definitely not a weekend destination for most, but a good half day/full day of play...

March 30 is a go.
5 rigs is not a requirement for that weekend, but in the future if you guys want to go once you know the place, he'll open up for a minimum of 5.

I work for him & have access to the property pretty much any time...

Couple more...

Definitely more fun than fire roads.

There's a cool creek bed with big rocks and a washed out v-ditch and a bunch of rocky hills and woods trails.
I'm pic limited cause I'm usually there with just me and my daughter and just take pics of her...
