Not sure of dates yet. I'm thinking summer when the kids are out of school, so we can go up on Thursday or Friday.

I will probably go, it's a freaking haul...but so worth it

Also the trail pass ends up being like 30 bucks.

I could probably take two days off. Like Tyler was saying...if I go I will be there for 4 days or so

If were are going to do this, lets hammer down some dates. For those in the know, what is the cost of the trail pass? Is it per day? weekend? etc? Any links?

Stan posted this earlier. Is this where we would be going? If so here is a link to the permit pricing.

I would really like to go here or Windrock in Tennessee. Windrock could be pricey for a family though. Sad

If you are going with multiple family members, Harlan is cheaper for sure. Windrock charges by the person, not by the vehicle.

Harlin is one of the best , if not the best, parks in the east. The trails there run from mild to wild with everything in between. Climbing is normal at Harlan, lots of steep climbs. Rain is a HUGE diffuculty multiplyer there as well. I have been on some of the harder class 4 trails at Harlan in the FJ and had a blast. The class 4s will require a lift, good tires and at times a winch. I prefer to challenge myself, so a winch is normal. I've had the pleasure of driving an FJC with a lefty at Harlan and the lower gears make a difference.

I'll have to check the wife's calendar when I get home to see which weekend hasn't already been planned for me Neutral

I would run Rail Bed first to kind of gauge the difficulty. Rail Bed is a good milder trail for Harlan.

I also booked a cabin for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

If you make reservations try to stay on the Putney Trailhead side.

I just reserved Cabin #4. Why would you get that nasty looking #2 model, when #4 was wide open? I will reserve judgment

Great prices
