Where: UORTC's -BIG CREEK: Advanced Skills Training Grounds
Why: An opportunity to drive exciting new trails in the Uwharrie National Forest area; test your driving skills and your vehicle’s off road capabilities; enjoy a fun and rewarding day getting to know yourself and your 4WD vehicle. UORTC's best will be on hand to help you if you would like. We can provide expert coaching, recovery assistance and spotting. Safety and TREAD Lightly! are the most important factors.
Big Creek is a 120 acre property located 4 miles North from UORTC's headquarters. This property has been leased by UORTC to develop trails for training, coaching and fun. These trails provide challenges to test modified vehicles with lockers, large tires and WINCHES while providing bypasses that allow a near stock 4x4 vehicle (When Dry!) the ability to enjoy the same trails! Some of the trails are tight and not suitable for full size vehicles without incurring body damage! We call this our 'Advanced Skills Training Grounds' and we do not recommend this trail system for beginners.
The cost of this unique experience is only $40 per vehicle and limited to 30 vehicles! Passengers are free. Drivers must sign a Waiver and a Safety Agreement. All passengers must sign a Waiver. Minors under the age of 18, parents/guardians must sign a waiver for them.
Pre-registration is required by pre-paying! To reserve your spot, contact UORTC, Scott Fields, at 336-906-1644 or scott@UORTC.com . Payment can be made via PayPal using the email address scott@UORTC.com , Credit Card (call 336-906-1644 if paying by CC) or by check made payable to: UORTC and mailed to 4026 NC Highway 109 North, Uwharrie, NC 27371.
One will check in at UORTC headquarters at 9:00 AM (4026 NC Highway 109 North, Troy, NC, 27371) where you will sign your paperwork. OHV trail driving/riding is an inherently dangerous sport and you acknowledge this fact and assume all liability for damage to your vehicle or injuries to you, your passengers or others on the Big Creek property!
We will be breaking up into 2 groups of 14 to 16 in each group. We will do our best to keep friends and family together!
One group will be more for the driver that likes to drive without spotters, recovery help and coaches.
The other group will be for the driver that likes the little extra help from a spotter, driver coach or rigging your winch. Both groups will be driving the same trails just at different times.
There is LIMITED trailer parking at BIG CREEK, register early to insure your spot! There are no bathroom facilities at BIG CREEK! Bring your own food and drinks! We will stop for a lunch break on the trail. The BIG CREEK gate will close at 6 p.m. sharp!
Again, there will be UORTC personnel stationed on the BIG CREEK trails to ensure your safety and provide obstacle coaching IF you so desire.
