Alabama has more parks, closer together than anywhere. Albeit most are small(ish) and the truly "hardcore" trails at a single park could be covered in 1-2 days.

A lot of the parks like AOP and GMP (when it was open) the trails change enough and new trails are cut, that they are worth re-visiting every few years.

A lof the really hardcore rock CRAWLING (I'm talking about the type of stuff that isn't really "fun" to ride, more work and picking perfect lines to avoid stuffing your rig into a multiple winch necessary scenario) isn't in parks per se. It's offshoot trails up dry creekbed ravines out in the boonies.

Yeah I’ve been all over Alabama that’s not far east on looking far east and yes that’s the trails I’m looking for the ones that you don’t want to ride

I'd imagine a state like WV probably has more places to hardcore rock crawl than you could do in years... Who knows how to actually find said trails and how to access them.

Probably about like in the western states, Idaho/Montana/Wyoming... I find it hard to believe that there isn't a badass rock crawling trail every 50 miles out there.

I reckon that legal access is the issue though...

There's a couple of places in those states mentioned in this thread/listing. However, I have no idea if any of them are still open etc.

I've never heard of any wheeling to amount to anything in NC or SC (since Tellico closed)

It amazes me that in a mountainous place like western NC, that more popular wheeling spots don't exist.

I don't think there are that many people on here that regularly (or ever) wheel farther north than KY...

And the ones that do travel to wheel, usually go to the bucket list places out west.


I've been up to Big Dogs in Gore, VA (about 10 years ago) and it was some cool big rock trails and hard wheelin', BUT, there are/were still dozens of places in Wilder, Windrock, Tackett, Royal Blue, Harlan, and Slade that I haven't put tires on yet...

Always wanted to wheel in Oklahoma too.



The thing I always see about parks in the north east, are they are really small. like 20-60 acres...

Drives me nuts to drive for hours and hours to go 4wheel somewhere and you drive past a dozen powerline or gasline right of ways, or even just the woods around a cow pasture that has more badass looking rock crawling than the park you're driving to.

Just came back from a new place in WV. Guy said they have another place 10 minutes away. Call ahead and they’ll show you the hardcore stuff. Here’s a link to a thread I made about the park, worth the read.
