I bought my year pass at the ranger's office in Troy. I bought mine in June so this does not apply to me. However she did say some of the season passes bought later in the season were good for the following full season too. This might be the case with yours. I don't have mine in front of me, but I think it is green and reads 2011 on it.

Looks like yours is probably only valid until this December. Looks like you have to go back several times to get your money's worth!



Honestly when I bought mine I doubted that I would go more than a few times, but I wanted to support the park and the OHV trails. Now that I have experienced the fun I would hate for it to go away due to insufficient funds.

i probably wont buy a season pass now..as im more than likely not going to be at URE for more than 5 times this year...i agree with brian that i would like to support the parks and trails ...i think a good idea would be to have a "CLEAN UP RIDE" some time and see if we cant get those passes for free...it would be good for everyone involved..the parks and the drivers...I think Chad had mentioned that there was a way to do this...im not sure what it is and im sure that Chad can expand on that...i am still wanting to make a ride next week and maybe we could incorporate a clean up too....thoughts???

Is this ride still on? I REALLY need to get my FJ off road for its maiden voyage. I feel 99% that I can get there the 17th.

I will read my manual again this week to try and understand the ATrac and Diff Lock. I saw somewhere on here that the trails are passable with a stock FJ. That is pretty much where mine sits...only off-road mod of sorts are my sliders and the 5100s up front. What trail(s) will we be taking?

I agree, we should start or adopt a trail maintenance/ clean up day. I am not sure how to organize this maybe we need to talk with the Park Ranger or the Outpost folks. I would love to do this to help perserve the trails for future use.

Looks like we will be able to make it out this coming weekend too!!! Depends on the weather system but we might try and come out on Friday night (around 7:30) and camp off Wolfs Den trail like last time. Chad you down for that? It will be me and my lady Very Happy

If folks camp the night before, do they come out to the Outpost as a meeting place or would we meet somewhere else? What time?

I'm in for the trail riding saturday and sunday. i'm trying to work it out to camp sat night but all my equip is old and needs replacing. Does it cost extra to camp? Is it better to camp in the campground by the lake or on the trail?

Sorry to be such a noob.

this sounds like it is gonna turn out to be another great weekend...really looking forward to it as my wife is gonna join us too...hey BOBBY...i think that we should start with talking to the OUTPOST folks and see if they have any info on "trail cleanup"...starting there i think is a good place..if we need to talk to the Park Ranger then we move onto that...i think it would be a great thing to do for the trails and for us as a group...im wondering if there should be a person assigned from NCFJ to be the liason with the Park Service...im thinking that Chief David Bronson might be brought in on this subject...anyway it sounds like this weekend is gonna be a good one...

The folks at the outpost have no connection to URE other than it being the reason they are successful. Dewey you know the guy who coordinates trail work days and can get us in touch with the forest service to adopt a trail. Eli is the man to talk to. The guy with the red dodge raider.

As far as camping... camping on the trails is free. If you look at a trail map you can meet us at the campsite any time all night friday on Wolfs Den, Take teh main forest service road down to the wolfs den trail head and continue on wolfs den until you see the 4runner parked up on the left in a uphill corner.

hey scotty dog...the best way to understand the atrac and diff lock is to actually use it in a situation where you need it...it can seem extremely confusing but in actual practice its very very simple...and when we get down there at URE we will all show you how it works...and you will actually be very amazed...



Chad...i dont know the guy in the raider...but imsure we can get a hold of him sometime and see what we can get done...it sounds like a great idea especially if we get free trail passes...its worth it to me to stop and pick up trash and even work on the trails...

Forecast is now calling for 60 - 70% chance of rain friday, less or none on saturday. Hopefully this will just settle the dust like last time.

Will anyone be running on Sunday or is it Saturday and head back home? Saturday is out for me (have to run to TN and back that day). Could use the above mentioned Atrac vs. Diff lock lesson as well.

Read the manual AGAIN last night, think I have it, but definitely need practical experience. I understand when it is wet at URE, it can be quite challenging. Does that change anything for us stock/non-AT tire folks? My General Grabbers only seem to grab small pebbles to hold in the tread and tick as I drive down the road until they kick out, probably onto someone's windshield...I hate tailgaters!

Unless we get monsoon season for a well then ire wont be an issue for stock tires. The ground doesn't hold water down there's. It just runs off and drys out really quick.

We need to find out who Eli is to coordinate this Trail clean up. Chad is this Eli from NC4X4 with the red Raider? How can we can contact him and who should be in charge of arranging these club trail meetings? I would love to be apart of them!



The weather does look like it may rain better bring some boots! Cool



Who else is down the camp Friday night? Like Crogers said just take the main service rd in until you come to Wolfs Den trail, then go down a ways on the Wolfs Den Trail and u will see us on the left. Looking forward to another trip and seeing you guys again as well as meeting some new folks!
