    As it says, Chocco on July 24th. A few of us dropped by there on the way to N&M's wedding and the place looks too cool. Steep, loose rock and plenty to offer.

    From what we saw you can run anything from a big-wheel to really big wheels. Camping is available and they were working on showers when we were there. It's also less than 1.5 miles from downtown Jacksonville AL so all the luxuries are easily within reach.

    Choccolocco Mountain, 2056 Pelham RD S, Jacksonville, AL 36265

    It's only about 1:20 from the 75/285 area, we can either camp or make it a day trip, don't care which.

    From the infamous "Boat Ramp"

    So folks with 31s-33s can run it or hit some of the bypasses?

    It's a scouting trip for a few reasons and this is one of the questions we're looking at. I see a lot of buggies out there so I don't really know but from what I've heard and been told: YES, there are trails from mild to wild. How many & how long I don't know but there's only 1 way to find out.

    Edit--Ignoring the redneck factor:

    From "mild": stock 4-runner on 33s


    to wild: no words needed


    Here's trail map: you can download the .pdf version from their site

    Not to discourage the scouting, but I have heard that this is definitely a BIG WHEELS type park.

    Went out there a couple years back.

    'Interesting' crowd.

    It was fun, but not as much fun as Morris Mtn, IMO. Some really super nasty trails. Boat ramp is for the big HP big tire crowd. Good bypass for boat ramp.

    I'm interested to hear what ya'll think.

    Been there a handful o' times... Stocker rigs will have no issues getting around the park. Though, you may have to take longer bypasses and even get seperated... it's worth a scouting trip, and stock-ish rigs should go.
    That said, some of even the easy trails have pucker factor going up and down.

    gotta do it, members have spoken. Too many conflicting schedules and broken trucks to pull it together before the 17th.
