About

The Carolina Trailblazers Four Wheel Drive Club is a family oriented club formed in 1971 and incorporated in 1973. We ride trails of medium difficulty most of the time but we sometimes ride trails that are suitable for stock vehicles and sometimes hit the real hardcore stuff.

We “Tread Lightly” to minimize the ecological impact of our hobby and try to leave the trails a bit cleaner than we found them. Many of the club members live near Hickory, NC but some live as far away as Eastern NC, SC and TN. Our scheduled trail rides usually take place on the weekend of the second Sunday of the month and can be a one to five hour drive from Hickory. Sometimes there will be an alternate ride for those not able to do the primary ride. A club meeting is usually held during the monthly club ride.

News & Activities

Club trail rides are usually the second Saturday of each month. Occasionally this schedule is modified for holidays. In most cases the club meets at the proscribed meeting point at 9 a.m. A short club meeting usually follows and we began our trail ride immediately following the meeting. Please allow yourself enough time in your schedule to eat, fuel up, socialize, air down, etc before 9 a.m. All schedules, directions to the meeting point, difficulty ratings and other vital information can be found in the club newsletter.

Members are encouraged to invite guests for cluboutings, keeping in mind that they are responsible for the behaviour and actions of their guests. Guests are encouraged to apply for club membership, keeping in mind that repeated, continual attendance at club rides requires that you be a member of the club. If members friends want to ride with us on a regular basis please encourage them to join the club! The scheduled trail rides usually include a mixture of difficulty options depending on the modifications to your vehicle. Often rides are split into different groups to accomodate vehicle differences. NO ONE is left behind on our club rides! If you start out with us, you end up with us!
