Alabama Trail Riding

Postby AuburnHummer » Mon Mar 03, 2008 11:09 am

Hi yall,

I go to school in Auburn, Al and took my H3 up to Lake Martin in Dadville, Al. The trail is very scenic and runs around a small mountain to a point out on the lake where I spend my Sundays fishing.

Anyone on the forum from Auburn or Alabama in general?

Anyone ever been to a place called smith mountain at Lake Martin?

Anyone also hear of any other trails or just mud holes to visit in the Auburn area?

I am new to this board and im going to try posting some pics of this place hopefully it works.

Welcome to HXC! 8) Glad to see you found a place to wheel in Alabama. Never been there. Not sure if anyone here is from there, but when there is one, usually the next one pops up and so on. :)

I have been thru Anniston before. What is the trail like?

The one I play on in Dadeville is basically just a bunch of mud holes and a little bit of technical maneuvering.

Since im new I need to ask how to post photos on the page I see the file attachment option but it doesn't seem to be working for me. (maybe is my connection)

I was first introduced to the Humvee outside of Anniston, AL at Ft. McClellan. The Humvee training course they had there was awesome. :yup: Is Pelham Range open to the public since the fort closed? There was some good wheelin' out there. I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures.

Using the Upload Attachment feature below browse to find the image you want to upload. After selecting the file click the "Add the file" button. If the files size is too big you won't be able to upload so you might have to reduced some.

I went through basic training and AIT in Anniston, AL back in 1990...swore I'd never go back. Though, since they closed the fort, maybe I'll go back there to do some off-roading. :lol:

Here are some pics of what I like to call Smith Moutain trail

Where the H3 is parked is usually under water. This was the first time I was able to drive out to that island. The island I was on had more trail so I followed it out to the middle of the lake. Some nearby fishermen were astonished seeing it all the way out there they didnt think it was possible 8)

I regret not getting more pics of the actual trail. Next time I will do that. Where the trail let out onto the lake was this huge hole about 20 yards in lenght and really deep since I was the only truck out there I drove the edge of it to avoid any possible mishaps.

What I wanna do is check and see if there are more parts to the trail.

The trail i usually ride is very short I would say a mile that has about 9 mud holes 6 of them arent hard at all 2 are pretty good and one huge one I haven't messed with yet because I have only been on the trail by myself and dont feel like getting stuck.

One time I went, I got to the end where it lets out to the lake and a group of locals with old lift broncos were taking pics of my truck and asked if I went thru the last hole because they said many people get stuck there.

Ill probably go back soon and look for more trails to see if its a worthy spot.

I might be going back this Sunday if I do I will keep everyone updated on what I find and take some more extensive pics of the trail

MMORV Park some of the trails are alittle tight for an H2, but for H3 and jeeps they're just right. I went through most of all of them. There are also rocky areas for you if your into rock crawling, theres one giant mud hole they call Soggy Bottom. I'll go back as soon as I get a group together. I'm also going to try and get in touch with the owners to see if they can make some of the tight trails wide enough for the H1 and Humvee.
