•Tin Benders Jamboree: An annual April thrashfest at Johnson Valley's Hammers.
Uwharrie Nat'l Forest, Troy, NC
Ali Mansour: The one I have the fondest memories of is the Rocky Mountain Loop Trail in the Uwharrie National Forest OHV Area, outside Troy, North Carolina. I've enjoyed Uwharrie's red clay countryside for years with my friends and family. It's definitely not the toughest trail system on the East Coast, but that hasn't stopped me from breaking, rolling, and having a blast. The most attractive part of the UNF trail system is that there is something for everyone. Add a good rainstorm and a boring hillclimb transforms into a high-revving, tire-spinning adventure.
Kevin McNulty: I like all the trails around Telluride and Silverton, particularly Black Bear Pass.
Fred Williams: The Johnson Valley Hammers trails. I can't pick just one. The are offers some of the best rockcrawling in the nation and has variety from easy to insane for any wheeling level.
Rick Pewe: Of all the trails in the world, my favorite is the Rubicon. While not the toughest trail, the sheer beauty of the 'Con along with its incredible history makes it my top-ranking place to wheel.
