Tellico ORV Area Info The Upper Tellico ORV Area is located
in the Nantahala National Forest near Murphy, North Carolina
in Cherokee County. Murphy is located in the southwestern
part of the state where North Carolina, Tennessee, and
Georgia all come together, and at the junction of Hwy 19/74
and Hwy 64. The Upper Tellico ORV Area is famous for some of
the best 4x4 trail riding in all of America. Names like
Guardrail, Helicopter Pad, Slick Rock and School Bus all
conjure up visions of rock piles, steep hills and off camber
ascents to challenge off roaders of all experience levels.
The Southern Four Wheel Drive Association (SFWDA)
maintains the Tellico ORV trail system and contributes
thousands of dollars and man-hours to this endeavor each
year. If it weren't for their efforts in conjunction with
the Forest Service, we wouldn't have this area to enjoy with
our friends and families. Please do not litter or drive off
the established trails. This is a dry county and it is
against the law to have alcoholic beverages in your vehicle
within the ORV area.
Camping: Yes and
The Tellico ORV Area is a fee access area. The cost is $5.00 per
day/vehicle payable at the Forest Service entrance station. The station
is operated on the honor system, so you will need to have correct change
(they do accept checks).
