Re: Goin\' to Tellico for the first time
first day go up schoolbus hill and down through squeeze rock.
this takes about 1/2 a day, so you could easliy hit upper 2 on the way back and call it a great day wheeling.
the second day... if that wasnt too bad for you guys, go up guardrail and helicopter, then down schoolbus. if this doesnt take too long, or you guys think the trails are too easy, hit lower 2. if the trails are still doable but you wanna push it, dont waste any time and head towards slickrock. if you do slickrock, expect to get back late. Lower 2 is only about 300 yards of hard stuff.
if its wet.. then try trail 5 first to get a judge of the trails.
my favorite trails are schoolbus and upper 2 (going up). both have challenging ledges (stairs). schoolbus is very steep...very very steep. guardrail is scary, but its a short winch up if you dont have pat there yelling at you. helicopter has a go-around.
wish i was going too.. they say windrock is even better, but tellico has the best trails I've seen.
dont be such a stranger mel.
ps.. get the 304 into something yet?
