Google maps shows its a 368 mile trip. Wayehutta is in Western North Carolina about 60 miles west of Asheville near Sylva.

Yeah I ride there occasionally, more so when I rode dirt bikes and 4 wheelers. I went to college at wcu, which is right next to it.

Traffic for the RZR's has dropped off some. We have a group of 2 or 3 of us that ride just about every weekend. They are just about done with Trail upgrades. If you enjoy trial 7A better hit that soon. I think the plan is to reroute it around the big hill climb and switchbacks.

The Roy Taylor forest that the park is in is about 40,000 acres according to the last brochure I have. Right now there is around 40 miles of trails open to ride.

Windrock trail system is much larger with 250+ miles of trails. The trails are all maintained at Wayehutta. I haven't been to windrock in a few years since its about a 2:30 drive for me over I-40. Windrock is a great place to ride but I haven't been since I purchased a RZR. The day fee at Wayehutta $5 per day with a self service pay box or $30 for year pass. They don't allow camping but there is a covered picnic area. It has similar logging road type trails as windrock as well as "most difficult trails". Trails 2, 11 are wide fast trails. Trail 1 is the main loop and offers a mix of everthing. Trail 7 7a has deep rut section and two steep switchbacks. Trail 6 and 9 have rock crawling areas. I'm 20 min away from Wayehutta so for me is my normal weekend destination and sometimes during the week. Windrock is certainly larger trail system.

I guess i might be interested depending on how challenging it is. Honest answer....how long does it take you to ride every trail there?

Is there anywhere near to camp with a 40' Toy Hauler? I'm in Greensboro NC and would not mind making a weekend trip if you think it is worth it. Maybe someone has some trail pictures?

Thanks

On a normal day we hit about 80% of the trail system. You could do it all in a day without stopping and going a fast as possible one way. If you like challenge thou 7A and 9 eat up some time especially when you want to try it again using a different line. Most of the large trails are two way and different depending on direction. The lower side of Trail 1, has some nice uphill climbs which are fast and several hundred feet of elevation change to the top. The best challenge days are days its raining and everything becomes difficult.

There are several camp grounds in the area but non onsite. Moonshine Creek and many others close to Cherokee. We get a lot of folks that just trailer the razor for the daytime and stay at the casino in Cherokee or Dillsboro.

It has been a couple of years since I have been there. Have they opened new trails that are rougher to ride?
