Trail 15 is no gravel road. Trail 10 and 12 are the two main connecting trails through the park, they are basically fire roads in most places.

Body damage is relative. I have gotten body damage at Harlan, Windrock too, even at the Gulches. It all depends on how aggresive you are in your trail and line selection. I prefer tougher trails and tougher lines. The FJC is FAT and heavy. Combine those two and sometimes you get body damage.

Trail 45 that runs up the mountain from the campsites to the playground is a bear when wet. Somewhat scary coming down when really wet. If you guys are that worried you may want to beg off and go elsewhere.

I am just wondering if there will be enough stuff to enjoy ourselves, stretch our levels, but still not involve grinding my door against a rock. Very Happy

I am going to investigate Coal Creek/Windrock. That would be a better trip for the family with

I have also been to Harlan plenty of times with no damage at all. Go on the Blue room and search Harlan, lots of trips by FJCS there.

Nick and I will both have our wives and two little ones (mine are both under 3), so the unknown is tough to deal with. Youtube searching led to a lot more "daily driving rigs" on medium to challenging trails at CoalCreek/Windrock than at Harlan.

My wife FREAKS out when we go wheeling, even in Uwharrie.

I just got a crap load of boxes from Bud Built, so I'm preparing for either.

But yes, I'm leaning more toward Windrock now. If for nothing more than we can hit Pigeon Forge or Gatty on the way to or from - and maybe even a ride through Hurricane Creek. Just more to keep the little ones occupied. I don't think there's much to do other than wheel in Harlan, so the kids would go nuts after a while.

I'd much rather do Harlan when I can go alone, without the family. Maybe the later part of the year (when the wife goes up to NY) Smile

I still think Harlan is the better choice. There will be plenty to do.

I might actually be solo that week. I'll have to see if I can get some days off Smile
