ATV Riding

Author: E. Silva (aka Mr. Awesome Expert)

If you really like ATV’ing in NC, then you’re in for a treat as I am to talk about a few super great trails that you can take your partner or group ( or just yourself, even ) to go check out. The first would be the trails at the Brown Mountain OHV Trail, which you’ll find by the Pisgah National Forest right in the heart of Morganton. This is one of the busiest ATV parks, in any season of the year, I will not lie…. so plan well ahead of time for when you want to visit. Keep in mind that weekends are SLAM – TIME, in other words, when they tend to be the busiest …. so finding a spot, some space ( and heck, even a little privacy ) during this time can be quite tough. Keep that in mind, I say, and don’t forget it …. try to come on a Monday or Tuesday at around 3 pm, he he he he he heh, and you will certainly beat the rush and avoid horrible traffic, long waits, and many other visitors crowding the space. It’s the ideal time to come.

Keep in mind this next thing as well : With all trails here combined, you get a full 34 miles of space. Easy to moderate are the difficulty levels. If you want the toughest challenge of all, for these trails, try the one and only Black Diamond Trail …. they consider it the most challenging there is, by far.

Another great area for ATV riding would be Appalachians Outdoor Adventures, which takes you first – hand right through all of Asheville’s best Smoky Mountain trails. It also passes nearby Boothe and in total gets you about 70 miles you can drive / ride around in. It’s got some of the most scenic views of all in this area, truly eye – watering nature features. It’s a visual spectacle for the senses! You can basically rent ATVs or UTVs here all at a packaged deal, typically of which the rate is good for a whole day. They won’t kick you out early, he he he he he heh.

When you pay for a day pass there, you are typically getting permission to ATV / UTV YOUR HEART OUT and ride all you want ( and that price includes unlimited re – fuels during that time, as well as food and drinks for the whole day, a packaged deal which I think is more than well worth it, at the end of the day ) . If you want to check out one more spot where you can take your ATV ( and who wouldn’t want to learn of one more, right? In fact, the more, the merrier …. ) , then check out the one and only Uwharrie OHV Trail System. It’s connected to the Uwharrie National Forest and features over 20 miles of trails, too. Fun, fun and more fun!
