From April 9 – 12, Jeep Jamboree held their 10th annual Tennessee Mountains trail ride in Oak Ridge, Tennessee at the Coal Creek OHV Park, also known as Windrock Recreation Area.
Inspired by local Jamboree coordinator Bob Yarbrough, this three-day ride was a 3-7 on the trail rating scale, making it a great time for beginners and veterans alike. There were plenty of “spots where you’ll have a bit of white knuckling,” says Glenda Gau, Jeep Jamboree adventure consultant, but the ride was a blast.
Coal Creek OHV Park features 72,000 acres of beautiful scenery and a variety of trails with “everything from rock outcroppings to mud to logs across the trail,” says Glenda, “and our trail guides are there to help you.” With the varied terrain, participants had to be sure they had the right Jeep parts and accessories to make your three day ride a smooth one.
Tow points and CB radios are required for all of Jeep’s Jamborees. Jeep Jamboree is hosting 33 Jamborees in total for 2014, but Glenda says tickets go fast, often selling out in as little as 30 minutes after they go on sale Dec. 1 at midnight East Coast time.
