If you go to the West (left) you'll go on to Tom Thrash's property that is now leased by the folks from Durhamtown. That area is an ORV riding area now,, but they want you to access it from the Boiling Springs (Murphy) side.. don't know about a meth lab,, but some of the Moonshiners TV show is filmed in there.. hope this helps..
Thanks, I will tread lightly! I want to check out the "new" Tellico ORV someday, hopefully it will be similar to the old area. Sounds like more of a Jeep trail network right now but still worth exploring.

Speaking of Moonshiners, we bumped into Wayne while riding FR81 near Stewart's Cabin last year. Unfortunately, he had no samples for us.

I want to explore this area but would hate to end up on private property leading back to a meth lab and on the wrong side of a locked gate.
when you get to the western end of the road that goes to porterfield gap, the road continues on to little snowbird - the google aerial doesnt show it well but you cant goof it up. it connects to little snowbird real close to juanita branch road. its super obvious when youre there

Good to know. I'm only able to get over that way a couple of times a year so I am slowly learning the dirt/Forest roads. Now I can piece together a decent ride and not get lost.

I've actually done this in the Little Snowbird area, and I have the scratches on my Super T to prove that it's been drug under a gate.

Be careful up in that area.

Saved for later. I've seen this on the map and wondered about it. Sounds like an interesting ride.
