Like to revive this tread if possible. New member here and live in NC. 

Uhwarrie is really great! Been many times on everything from horseback, jeep, quad and bike. Trails are rocky and it's definitely a workout for any bike. (Cr250r braaaaaaap) fun but a chore to ride. Quads are the way to go for sure, easily able to do most trails with a few very challenging ones if you like. I had a blaster and 300ex several times there and it's always a great place. 

$5 a day fee to ride all you can plus it being a national forest u can camp anywhere you want freely.

It has grown in popularity over the years so weekends are crowded and can be hectic at times. 

Rain plays a factor as well. With the soil type it turns muddy quick.

Dry days are dusty! eye and mouth protection is a must!

With that I hope to spark some interest and will be happy to meet up for any adventures!!!

I normally go all the way in the park past the shooting range and start on 89 at wolf den trailhead. That way it's more of a loop to get back to the tow vehicle. Last time I was there the trails were not marked clearly or driver error got me tangled into some difficult trails that my poor 2stoke blaster wasn't ready for. Lol. The hill on what I think was dickey bell was lots of loose rocks and it just wasn't possible for me to make it up on that thing without letting it go for a few flips back down by itself. As crazy as it seems I look back and miss the experience it left me with but at that time I was ready to just live right there and not move another inch.😫 finally made it to the top and the trail head wasn't far from there. 

But I have seen them doing a lot of maintenance in the off season on their Facebook page with new guardrails and more markers on the trees so hopefully it won't be an issue any longer.

      I just heard Tommie Smothers died, I watched his show in the 60s, it was a great show one of the best. He will be missed, if not for Mom liked you best, then definately for YOYO MAN and his state of YO.

      MGoing to apologize in advance to those that have a soft spot for wolves. They are definitely not my favorite species of animal.  They continue to grow bolder and bolder even with the population exploding all around us in this wide open valley floor. This valley is approximately 40 miles long by 35 miles wide. Was once mostly agricultural but over the last 25+ years, the kids of long time property owners have sold to the highest bidder.  Developers buying up small farms and ranches for millions of dollars and eating away at the local agricultural way of life, destroying the rural Montana I, and many natives, once knew, covering up perfect farm land with urban sprawl, never again to produce a grain of wheat or barley,  potato,  canola seed, or any crop of any kind ever  again.  Lining developers pockets, raping and pillaging another rural area and leaving the infrastructure in a colossal mess and the local cities trying to figure out how to pay for the improvements to move the traffic, overloading an already overloaded tax base.
      FINALLY, after years of farmers and ranchers lobbying and legislation, they finally opened up a season to hunt the destructive and devastating consequences of the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park. These animals have become a huge problem outside of the park boundary. Did the powers that be actually think these killing machines would stay inside the park boundaries? Really? Hmmmmm, not the sharpest tools in the shed. Their population has exploded over their reintroduction into the park in 1995. They released 41 wolves into different areas in Yellowstone Park, then made it illegal to kill any of them that came out of the park boundaries. Pretty much leaving farmers and ranchers defenseless in protecting their livelihood without becoming a criminal. If they did ever shoot one the investigation process has been so stringent and stressful a lot of them have done the 3 S's. Shoot, Shovel, and Shutup! There are now over 1500 wolves in western Montana, over 1100 in Idaho, over 400 in Wyoming, and almost 150 in Eastern Washington. Who knows how many have migrated back into Canada.
      They finally delisted the wolves and opened up a hunting season on them, something that should have been done years ago before they decimated our elk population. 
      A friend of ours was able procure a tag and was able to fill it yesterday morning. The wolf was down in the middle of the valley floor stalking his cattle on his family ranch, definitely deserved to be taken out. Personally would like to see more taken down, they have gone well beyond repopulation with this program and have spent millions on tracking and thousands of man hours, colossal waste. Glad to see another one gone.

      Considering pulling the pin on an ARGO xplorer 570 xrt 2 up unit. Has anyone had any experience with these. They offer a pretty good sounding warranty but I don't know anyone who's got one to know if they're good about following through on their warranty promises
