Top Secret Wheeling Spots
Some of the best places to go wheeling are often kept a secret. We got the chance to head down to Tuscaloosa, Alabama to do a little night wheeling at one such spot. This place is a well kept secret among the locals. I can’t blame them for keeping the place to themselves. It was an awesome riding spot.
We arrived around 10pm and unloaded the buggy at a friends house. Then we drove the sticky tire clad beast down the road to a dirt trail that dropped off onto the property. The property is old mining land that has been reclaimed. There was a nice shallow creek that wound its way through the property with plenty of trails branching off of it. This place had it all. Hill climbs, rock crawling areas, and fast dirt roads. The coolest part was that the mining had left behind huge tunnels through the hills. These tunnels were 15 foot tall and just as wide. Some of them were at least 300 feet long. You even had to rock crawl through one of these tunnels where rocks had fallen from the ceiling. We made our way through 2 of the tunnels on our trip. Did a couple of pretty nasty hill climbs and even opened up the 383 on some windy dirt roads before loading it back up on the trailer and heading home.
This secret location is one of the best places I have been for some recreational wheeling. I can’t wait to get out there this summer and do some riding again. There is nothing like a hot day of wheeling ended by a nice swim in a creek. Check back as we check out more Top Secret Wheeling Spots.
