Hey Jonesy. I currently live near Toledo, Ohio. We have friends in Burkesville and my father retired there. He has since passed on, but I still go there. Kentucky is beautiful and I plan to relocate there later.
As for wheeling spots, it's hard to beat Black Mountain, near Harlan. Harlan County Campground & RV Park
. Head down I-75 and hang a left just north of the Tennessee border, basically.
Up here, we make regular trips to Bundy Hill, a converted stone quarry. Not really worth the trip for you....especially being so close to Harlan!!
Go here--> YouTube - GeneralTJWillys's Channel
<--- to check out some video I shot while at both places.
Here's a video while on Harlan's "Lower Rock Garden".--> Picasa Web Albums - Tracy - Harlan Fall C...
<-- This is also where there was an episode of PowerBlock TV's "Extreme4x4" filmed, as well as where the southeast qualifier for the vaunted KOH (King of the Hammers), took place and was filmed.
If you don't mind a bit of a drive, then I also suggest that you head west, to Hot Springs, Arkansas and hit Superlift Off Road Park. You'd also have a blast there too. It's at least as good as Harlan, maybe better in some ways. Bummer is, it's just too far for me to go there often.
If you're ever in east/northeast Ohio, then look up Wellsville, near the Pennsylvania border, and JeepSkool Welcome to JeepSkool.com!
. I hear they are both fun, but in vastly different ways!! And of course, if you're ever heading up near Toledo/southeast Michigan, get hold of me, and, If possible, we'll make a Bundy Hill run.
