Win This Jeep - Help Support our dear friend Scott Field's fight with Cancer

Many of you do not know our good friend Scott Fields. Here is a little look into his OHV life. Scott is very sick and we are trying to support him, his family and the current issues. Please help us help Scott in this time of need. Support the Carolina Trail Blazers, Jason Watson and Team, as they support the Fields family.
— SFWDA President; Ray Stanley

A message from the Carolina Trail Blazers, James Belcher.

The Uwharries, prior to becoming a national forest in 1961 by decree of President John F. Kennedy, were used for hunting, gold mining, timber and farming. All of those activities left a system of roads and trails throughout the forest which continued to be used by recreationists after the Uwharries were name a National Forest. Motorcycles, trucks and early 4wd vehicles accessed the forest for many purposes. With the advent of the ATV in the early 70’s usage of the forest increased.

In the late 70s and early 80s, motorcycle clubs, notably NC Trailriders, under the leadership of John Worsley, were using the forest trail system and developing and maintaining new trails. At this time Scott Fields was living on Badin Lake and as an active outdoorsman, Scott was an active user of Uwharrie National Forest. Scott was an ATV owner who frequently rode the Forest Service roads and hunting trails in the Uwharries. As a “local” Scott became friends with John Worsley and NC Trailriders. Scott would use his Honda Foreman ATV to serve as a pack mule for the motorcycle club as they performed their trail work carrying chainsaws, axes, gas cans and other equipment the motorcycle riders couldn’t carry.

In 1982 Scott purchased a “79 Dodge Power Wagon. This vehicle was capable of carrying much more trail development equipment and Scott’s role in developing the Uwharrie trail system increased as well. At about this same time Forest Service personnel and motorcycle club leadership began to have issues over the trail system usage and maintenance. Legal motorcycle access was even suspended for a short period between 1982 and 1984. It was at this time that Scott began to have a vision to incorporate the off road trails into a Forest Service operation that would serve the full size OHV users in addition to the motorcycles and three wheeler ATVs that were using the trail system. In 1984 the trail system was reopened for all motor usage and was being used by motorcycles, ATVs and full size 4wd vehicles which were becoming very popular.

During this same period of time, 1982-1986, a 4wd event called the Smoky Mountain Trek was being held in the Nantahala National Forest area called Tellico. With the proliferation of full size 4wd usage, the event began to grow beyond its bounds, and the need developed for a recreationist advocacy group to work with the Forest Service in maintaining the trail system.

In the spring of 1987 a new organization was formed to be an advocate for the many individual and club 4wd enthusiasts in the southeast United States. This association was formed as the Southern Four Wheel Drive Association. The inaugural meeting took place in Gatlingburgh, TN. Among the attendees was Scott Fields, a member of the Carolina Trail Blazers 4wd Club, Inc. Scott is a charter member of SFWDA as is the CTB club.

Through his contacts with local enthusiasts, Forest Service personnel and SFWDA leadership, Scott brokered a deal whereby SFWDA would assist the Forest Service in developing an OHV system in the forest which would bring to fruition his vision of a multi-user trail system.

Several of SFWDA’s leaders at that time were experienced heavy machinery operators and Scott recruited their services in operating the machinery that modified the single track trails into something suitable for full size 4wd vehicles. Gunnar Byrd, 2011-2013 SFWDA president, and Griff Shirley were the men on the machines during this phase of the Uwharrie OHV trail system development.

As with many Forest Service programs, the participation of the general public, especially sport specific enthusiasts, was a key to maintaining the new OHV trails. As Scott’s vision began to take shape, the need for someone to coordinate volunteer efforts in this maintenance was self evident. As a resident of the area, an enthusiast and visionary of the project, Scott was the logical choice, and so began his 16 year run as OHV volunteer coordinator for the Uwharrie OHV trail system.

In the mid 2000s Scott suffered some business problems which forced him to curtail his OHV volunteer activities and move away from the Uwharie area. The OHV volunteer coordinator position passed through several people and as participation and communication between the coordinators and the Forest Service declined the Forest Service decided to began using an Adpot-A-Trail Partner program. Instead of having a volunteer coordinator that would work with the various clubs and individuals, clubs would adopt a specific trail to maintain in the Uwharrie OHV system and the Forest Service personnel would coordinate with club leadership.

Without Scott Fields and his vision it is very doubtful that there would even be an OHV trail system in Uwharrie National Forest. He is owed a debt of gratitude from every enthusiast who uses those trails!

Here is what the new BKORP is like?

Busted Knuckle Off Road Park Logo.png

Nestled in a cove just outside downtown Stevenson, sits Busted Knuckle Off Road Park. 600+ acres of classic North Alabama terrain. Rocky hills and rising hardwood benches cover the perimeter of the property with a long, open valley running through the center. We have a little of everything, from casual trails to the most extreme hill climbs in the Southeast. Located right on Highway 117, entrance and exit to BKORP is a breeze, even for semi trucks, with plenty of open area for parking. If you've never been here before, come see what all the fuss is about. If you have been here before, come check out the many new trails!

Primitive Camping is available on the park campground. You may arrive on Friday to setup camp and depart on Sunday if you prefer.

California Residents declare a victory for the Off Road Community

California Legislators and Governor Make the Off Highway Vehicle Program (OHMVR) a Permanent Part of the State’s Recreation Plan

   After many months of concentrated effort the California State Assembly just recently passed amended legislation that provides permanent status for reauthorization of the highly successful Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation program. The State Senate concurred and the legislation was submitted to the Governor for signature. On October 3, 2017, the Governor signed legislation making the OHMVR program permanent.

BAKERSFIELD, CALIFORNIA - After nearly a year of work with the California Legislature, State parks, Governor Jerry Brown, and stakeholders from across the country, the California OHV program has been extended. In addition, there’s a partner bill that makes the program a permanent part of recreation in California.

S.B. 249 and S.B. 159 are the legislative bills that Governor Jerry Brown signed into law. The California OHV program was introduced in 1971 and is funded by self-imposed user fees and taxes.  The program does not utilize general tax funds to accomplish its goals. The program also has an extensive “Grant Program” that provides funding for education, law enforcement and restoration through state, federal and local communities across the state

Over 80% of OHV opportunities in California are on federal land and facing budget shortfalls at all levels. The OHV program is an integral part of making sure that responsible and meaningful motorized recreation continues in California and provides the necessary funding to help augment those short-falls.

While it may seem that a complicated state like California would never allow OHV use, this proves that a viable, responsible and important program can work its way through a super majority and become stronger. Our original goal was to keep the existing program intact while at the same time make it permanent. With strong collaboration and hard work, we have accomplished these goals and are now looking forward to the future of off road recreation.

SFWDA Presents - Fall Meet n Ride 2nd Annual at Daniel Boone

Fall_M&R_2017_Header

Join SFWDA on November 4, 2017 for our
Fall Meet n' Ride, Slade, KY. 

OHIO RIVER FOUR WHEELERS and Kentucky Krawlers would like to invite our friends from SFWDA to head north for our second annual Meet & Ride day of wheeling in the Daniel Boone National Forest / Red River Gorge area. We would like to show our appreciation for all the support SFWDA has provided to help develop and promote the Daniel Boone Back Country Byway / DBBB.

There are NO registration or trail package fees for this event.

This may change due to Hollerwood Park opening later this year. We will notify through the Facebook event page. We are working on a free cost event even if Hollerwood Park is open.

We have enlisted volunteers from several local clubs to assist as Trail Boss,Mid-gunner, and Tail-gunners, for several trail combination packages, from Mild to Extreme. We will have something for everyone. Experience some of the trails you've heard about in this area: DBBB, Carburetor Hill, HairPin, WidowMaker,
and others. We have added extra trails this year, that were not open last year.

The Slade / Natural Bridge area is about 165 miles north of Knoxville, TN at Exit 33 off the Burt T. Combs Mountain Parkway.

We are eager to help you enjoy the trails we call HOME.
The following pages list registration instructions, hotel, camping & RV accommodations and local restaurants that will be open to make your weekend enjoyable.

Registration & Rules to Ride:

You MUST go through the SFWDA event site to register (RSVP) for this event.
Space will be limited this year to 150 vehicles. We had 138 last year.
Non-registered arrivals may be be added to groups if space allows.
Once you complete registration at SFWDA website, PRINT A HARD COPY OF YOUR REGISTRATION FORM AND BRING IT TO THE EVENT. YOU WILL NEED THIS FORM FOR THE INTAKE &TECHNICAL INSPECTION PROCESS.

We will offer 4 difficulty levels of trail riding this year:

  • EASY - Stock All Terrain Tires (31in.) - Green Sticker
  • MEDIUM - (33in. minimum tire) - Blue Sticker (Locker could be useful)
  • DIFFICULT - (35in. minimum tire)- Red Sticker (Minimum one locker)
  • EXTREME - (38in. minimum tire) - Orange Sticker (Front & Rear locker required)


You may go down in tires size if you like to join an easier group, however you may not go up in difficulty level with a smaller tire size.
This is to insure we keep rigs moving on the trails during the day, since other group will be using the same trails.

Due to the terrific turnout last year, we will begin the Intake / Tech Inspection Process at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning. Get in line early to ensure your spot in the group you'd like to ride with. Groups will depart the campground beginning at 8:30 - 9:00.

EACH rig must carry a First Aid Kit. You will not be put into a group if you don't have these items onboard.

Your rig MUST have one recovery point on vehicle.

A CB radio and full size spare tire are strongly suggested.

Each vehicle will bring a lunch meal & drinks to enjoy during a break on the trail.

Regardless of what difficulty level of ride you choose, at times you will be traveling on Kentucky county roads. You may not carry or consume any illegal drugs or alcohol when trail riding. Adult beverages around the campfire in the evening are welcome.

Our goal is for everyone to have a safe & fantastic experience.

The CREEKBED CRAWL is new for Dixie Run 31! Finally a competition for everyone...

Trail 16 (Creekbed) Multiples Classes * Framed Vehicles Only * Trophies * Prizes

Trail 16 (Creekbed) Multiples Classes * Framed Vehicles Only * Trophies * Prizes

The CREEKBED CRAWL is all new for Dixie Run 31!  Finally a competition for everyone...


Is anybody interested in a little old school rock crawl competition?

 SFWDA and Southern Jeeps with 2 outstanding sponsors; Motobilt and B. Lee's Offroad will be hosting this all new competitive timed event on Trail 16 (The Creek Bed Trail) on Friday at 2 PM at Dixie Run 31. 

This competition will be for framed vehicles, Tube Buggies and extreme rigs can enter the Shootout on Saturday. There will be 2 classes , 37” tire and under and 38” tire and over.

 Trophies are being donated by Motobilt for 1st through 3rd in each class and B. Lees Offroad is sponsoring the event and donating prizes to the class winners. B. Lees is also donating a lot of stuff to the Raffle Saturday night too, so go check out the Creek bed Crawl Sponsor at Bleesoffroad.com and Check out Motobilt.com.

Use #DixieRun31 #CreekbedCrawl, #bleesoffroad and #motobilt to share your pictures and videos of the event

The course will not be extremely difficult but will be technical and will test your maneuverability and attention to what the best line is. Don't hit the cones , don't stop and definitely don't back up and you could be the winner of this event.

Rock Crawl Rules

1) Points are most important, time is only to decide tie breakers. If some one gets a perfect score in 4:59 and someone completes the course in 3 minutes but they have one point penalty , the perfect score is first place regardless of time.

2) The course time limit is 5 Minutes. Failure to exit the course in 5 minutes is considered a DNF. (Remember points are most important but you still need to finish.)

3) Lowest score wins. +10 points for hitting a cone +5 points for backing up +5 points for stopping more than 3 seconds ( If you stop for more than 3 seconds and then back up you get both penalties, so if you think you need to back up you probably should go ahead ) DNF for spotter touching the vehicle at any time while it's moving -10 for bonus gates -10 for spotter riding in the vehicle the whole time

 To enter just come to Trail 16 (the Creekbed) and look for the banners.
