This is Globe. It is located near Blowing Rock, North Carolina in the mountains. Usually this trail is not bad, unless it has been raining or ther is snow on the ground. At least a small lift and 32" tires are recommended to be able to ride the whole trail.
This is me at Globe. I saw that I could do this, so I tried it. I was leaning quite a bit. I really didn't care if I rolled my Jeep over because the night before this ride I rolled it upsidedown.
This is Chad Zimmer and his Toyota. Check out more pics of Chad and his Toy here.
This is me going over The Rock. This is the most talked about and difficult obsticle on the trail. I've seen trucks with 3 inches of lift, 33" mud tires and lockers not make it over and get hung up on their frames, diffs., and trannys. I made it over after several tries. Below is a pic of Dustin in his FJ 40. Here he is stuck on his frame. He did no damage except for a few scratches and bent exhaust pipe.
This is a view from The Rock down the trail.
This is Casey Carpenter in his '86 Jeep MJ (Comanche). He has a custom leaf-over rear and a custom Tomken front. He runs 33" BFG Muds, Precision Gear 4.56 gears and ARB Air Lockers front and rear.
