Upper Tellico Off-Road Vehicle Area

On June 7 though 11 this group of 4x's of the Jeep-L mailing list hit the challenging trails of Tellico North Carolina.  Along with this group was Rick Masters of Pennsylvania who provided the pictures of his trail report of this Tellico trip.  The following are not in any particular order so those of you who know these trails of Tellico all too well may notice the trail runs a little out of place.  Thanks Rick for the Report.

The Upper Tellico ORV Area is located in the Nantahala National Forest near Murphy, North Carolina in Cherokee County. Murphy is located in the southwestern part of the state where North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia all come together, and at the junction of Hwy 19/74 and Hwy 64. The Upper Tellico ORV Area is famous for some of the best 4x4 trail riding in all of America. Names like Guardrail, Helicopter Pad, Slick Rock and School Bus all conjure up visions of rock piles, steep hills and off camber ascents to challenge offroaders of all experience levels.

The Upper Tellico Area is a high-elevation basin formed by the Unicoi Mountains. The Tellico River and its numerous feeder streams are born amid the high oaks and dissect the 8000 acres of rugged, steep terrain. Elevations range from 2500 feet on the Tellico River at the North Carolina Tennessee State line to 4979 feet on the Grassy Top Mountain. The forest cover is mostly mixed hardwoods with some pine and a variety of understory species.
