Hurricane Creek Rd to Max Patch in NC

So... I'm a total newbie to "off-roading". I think I'd prefer trail riding if that's the right term. I just took Horse Pasture Rd to Jump Off Rock at Lake Jocasse in SC, but I'd like to flex my car's abilities a little more than a fire road.

I recently saw there was a pretty big T4R trip up on Hurricane Creek Rd to Max Patch this past February... is this going to happen again over the winter?

From the video, it looks like the road is pretty doable without f@king my new Pro up.

Has anyone done Hurricane Creek lately and can report on the condition, or would want to take me on a "guided" trail ride up there?

I guess I should mention my Pro is stock for the time being... assuming it will be fine on this trail?

Any tips or upcoming trip notices, even to other places in the Asheville area, would be welcome.

Thanks!

So I have not done this before, but I have been trying to find someone to ride this trail with. You also may be able to make some local connections on the facebook group carolina 4runners

I have heard the same thing from some of my friends...it was definitley rutted and I would make sure to take someone with a winch or at least someone with traction boards. I also heard that there was a whole bunch of trash.

Join this Facebook group, most of the people are super nice and helpful! I always get the answers I'm looking for.

Thanks, I'm "pending" now and will ask if anyone has done it recently once approved.

There are ruts but if you go when its dry you can straddle them

A stock 4runner is fine, you may rub skids in a few spots but nothing bad. I'm in a stock trail, only problems I've had was when wet I had to stack some rocks because I didnt have the traction to avoid a verticle drop into a deep rut.

So heading up to NC early September and wanted to go a little off the path but would anyone recommend- Hurricane Creek to Max Patch?

Stock SR5 4R - 4WD
Stock Jeep Wrangler- 4WD

No experience really. I have heard mixed reviews depending on how much it rains before and ruts.

Suggestions?

I'd be curious about a trail report too. I was hoping to check it out next week, but if it's still this rutted I don't see my stock limited coming out the other side unscathed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COESgHBHBXg&feature=youtu.be&t=1964
