Y yuThere are a few things that we are famous for in the south such as our ice tea and hospitality. One of the things that we aren’t as well known for is just as ingrained into our culture is our off road trails. There is nothing more exciting than bring out my Jeep or RAM 2500 out to my spot and just letting lose. There are hot spots all around Georgia but like anything else some are a step better than others. This is the top Three mudding holes and off-road trails in Georgia.
The number one location is Durhamtown is claimed to be the largest off-road resort in the United States. It has 6,000 acres for exclusively off-road driving. It offers 40 miles of Jeep trails with three obstacle/technical areas to test the skills of the driver. On site lodging and hunting is available for those who wish to make an extended vacation. For your safety they provide call boxes and medical technicians for just in case!
Number two belongs to the Beasley Knob OHV Trails in Union County. This national forest provides 10.6 miles of challenging terrain at a low cost of only five dollars per day. This location provides for two different trailheads to enter into the trail. The only down side is that they are closed from January to March due to the effect off-road driving can have during the cold months on the trail.
Tray Mountain is the third choice as it has a bit of every feature for beginner to novice. There are many features including areas for basic camping areas. Sites that you will see are creeks and small waterfalls as you traverse through the Tray Mountain. Of course, the view is spectacular, especially during the fall season.
If you don’t yet have an OHV or a 4×4 that you want to bring out, go visit Thomson Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and RAM down in Thompson GA . It’s just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road from Durhamtown.
