Question Good dirt trails in ATL area?

Anyone know of any good decent dirt trails that I could try my WRX out on? I have never driven this car off of the pavement and am just curious how it does on some nice dirt trails. Nothing too radical, just something fairly smooth to play on.

Any ideas?

i'd like to find this also. an "idea": there are a lot of construction sites, especially for new neighborhoods. right after they cut the initial roads and before putting in the curbs and gravel/asphalt - the surfaces are perfect - wide smooth dirt - with very few rocks. you just have to catch them at the right time... say, maybe a sunday morning when no one else is around. just make sure you drive thru slowly a few times to check it out thoroughly.

i'm not recommending this, nor have i ever done it. ...cuz...that would be wrong...

anyone else?

I did this in a 1986 volvo (yes i know it was stupid). Definately hit a rock that in a mud pit, ripped a hole in my oil pan, and some other parts...to make a long story short it ended up dropping my tranny, and seizing up my engine.

Default Must Try

This is a fun back road in Paulding County GA. Find your way to Hiram GA on Hwy 278- Take 278 West headed to Rockmart GA. Before you leave Paulding county Brushy Mountain Trail or RD will be on your right. It starts out with gravel but turns to dirt. It is about 8 miles long and there are very few country residences on it. The best time to go is mid morning. You can drift your car through every curve. I would not suggest you go right after it rains I did and there are a few parts with GA clay that were so bad I stopped and turned around because I did not want to have to scrape that clay off my Yellow Rex .

Even though there is some gravel in a few parts it is still allot of fun. Hell I even scared my self a few times doing those unbelievable four wheel drifts. It gives you a uneasy fealing the first couple of times.

Have Fun

WRX4FUN,
Can you mapquest this road on 278 in Paulding County? I did a search for Brushy Mountain Trail, but mapquest was unable to locate it. Even a approximate map location would help.

Default Ok

I tried map quest also and could not bring it up. You are so close just drive to Dallas and I will show you were it is. On the Paulding county map it goes from Braswell Mountain RD in Braswell GA down to Dallas GA Hwy 278.

Brushy Mountain Rd, Dallas, GA, 30132

I just looked it up on expedia and found it listed as the above. It shows where it intersects with 278

Later
