Spring is here and things are turning green outside... that tells us that the OHV trails at Uwharrie National Forest will re-open soon! Trails will re-open on the morning of March 29, 2013, (that's this Friday!)!
OHV trails re-opening means it is also time for the second annual URE Spring Jamboree at the Uwharrie Offroad Training Center!
Sponsored by Kevin Powell Motorsports, Tarheel 4WD Center, James River Equipment, R.S. Braswell Company, Mid State Toyota, M & L Motor Company, and Lake Norman Power Sports Scott Fields and the UORTC have pulled out all the stops! This Saturday, March 30, there will be 4x4 Field Games and other competitions, vendor booths, an ATV and UTV test track, helicopter rides, and the swap meet! Bring the wife and kids, stop by the Eldorado Outpost for a ham biscuit, hit the trails, then check out the swap meet while the family grabs a hot dog from The Smoking Dog folks!
NC4x4, ECORS, local and regional clubs will be on site, along with folks from Tread Lightly! Uwharrie is our last public access battle in the state of North Carolina and access is threatened. UNF needs the Offroad Community, more than ever, to help maintain the trails and keep them open for our enjoyment. Even if your winter modifications aren't complete or you have a big trip coming up and don't want to break, stop on by to say hello to friends or meet some new ones.
