The Uwharrie ORV trails are owned and operated by the US Forest Service and is located northeast of Charlotte, NC off Highway 109 between Denton and Troy, NC in the Uwharrie National Forest. The Badin Lake ORV Area offers a wide variety of ORV opportunities, along with many horse trails, campsites and group camp sites, a shooting range, and water recreation opportunities.
Several trail system entry points and parking lots exist into the trail system including the Daniel, Flatwoods, Wolf Den and Rocky Mountain Parking Lots. Uwharrie has a variety of trail difficulties available from easy to very difficult. Some of the harder obstacles do offer easier bypasses. During dry conditions traction is good but during wet conditions traction can be nonexistent.
Difficulty - Moderate to Very Difficult
Fee - $5 per vehicle, payable at either of two parking areas
Length - 10.7 miles
Notes - Much more difficult when wet, closed January 1 to March 31. Beasley Knob ORV is owned and operated by the US Forest Service and is located just east of Blairsville, GA off (south) of US Highway 76 in the Chatahoochie-Oconee National Forest. Two entry points / parking lots exist into the trail system - Windy Hill Rd at -83.925, 34.882 and Rosemary Dr / 93 @ -83.907, 34.896. The southern parking area at Windy Hill Rd accesses the trail system via a 'Difficult' trail, and the northern parking area accesses the trail system by an 'Easy' trail which ends at a 'Most Difficult' trail.
Beasley Knob has a variety of trail difficulties but most are pretty steep. During dry conditions traction is good but during wet conditions traction can be nonexistent and the area is closed at times by the US Forest Service due to wet and dangerous conditions. SEO has assisted in several vehicle recoveries during wet conditions and suggests that less experienced drivers be extremely careful during dry conditions and not attempt Beasley Knob in wet conditions.
Difficulty - Easy
Fee - $0
Length - 26.1 miles for main loop with 12.2 miles of spur roads
Notes - Easy, mostly negotiable in 2 wheel drive, 4 wheel drive required in some areas. Wildcat Ridge Loop is located mostly on US Forest Service in north central Georgia and straddles the Fannin County / Union County line. Primary Access is off of Highway 60 and Doublehead Gap Rd. The Appalachian Trail crosses the lower portion of the loop and several easy water crossings are scattered along the route along with a few fishing spots and camp sites.
Much of this loop is accessible in two wheel drive but four wheel drive is suggested and required in a few spots. Remember that using four wheel drive in loose conditions can reduce wheel spin which will reduce impacts to the trail. The entirety of this loop should be open all year but please do not attempt to go around any closed gates or barriers that you might find.
This map will undergo updating in the future to include locations of camping areas, fishing spots, and other pertinent locations.
