8th Annual Run on Beasley Knob, Blairsville, CANCELLED

Postby Van » Wed Feb 03, 2016 7:34 pm

It's time for the 8th annual mid Uwharrie run on Beasley Knob OHV, Ga.

10.6 miles of trails ranging from difficult to most difficult.

Come and enjoy the cool weather of the GA mountains during the summer.

Trail fee $5 bucks per day.

Please insure you have the proper safety/recovery gear for/on your vehicle and yourself/passengers.

Camping at Trackrock Campgrounds:
http://www.trackrock.com/

Or at any of the nearby hotels.

Alternative camping at Lake Winfield Scott. Reserved camping for $12 per night.

For the real outdoors-man, you can camp at the OHV for the 5 bucks you pay to ride the trails per day... in other words... play like your a bear in the woods type of camping.

Jerry and I have reserved sites #68 and #69 from the 16-19 June at Trackrock. Sites #65-#67 were still open as of today.
Eric is staying at?? or coming up Friday/Saturday.

I'm in for Saturday and Sunday, maybe Friday if I can get out of work. I'll probably stay in blue ridge at the inlaws then head over.

I may try to make this. It depends on work and how much of my stuff I can get bolted onto my new ride.

That would be great. Last year we didn't have much of a turnout... but we tore up the trails nonetheless (meaning, we had a lot of fun). :mrgreen:

So ran the knob yesterday, it was very crowded. Didn't get to go down the ledges on the way down the mount. There was a Cherokee with a broken axle parked sideways about midway down. So we bypassed that. But the rest of the trail was a good challenge. They didn't do as much maintenance this year. There is alot of ruts and hard stones and ledges I dont remember from last time. It was a blast only minor damage sustained.

Glad you had a great time. :D

Did you do the FS road with the river crossing while you where up there?

We might have to try the hard trail out... but only with plenty of daylight. :lol:
