The 4th Annual CF OBX run will be happening either late July or early August. We haven't set a date yet but it's usually a pretty good turn out. If you hit up Corolla you go on some roads/trails behind the dunes. Not sure of anywhere else.

I live on Hatteras Island.We have about 3 miles of trails in the maritime forest.
Whoops and a few sandy spots. It's fun and nice but not exciting.
Beach driving requires a permit (have one). At low tide jumping the camel humps is fun.
I hit a couple of local properties too including the go-cart track that is closed down.
As mentioned,Corolla has trails instead of roads and 2 spots to have fun in and a bunch of water holes 4-5 feet deep. That's 1 hour North from here.
Hit me up for an adventure.
Also have a home garage with welder and most tools and know-how for an XJ.

30 minutes. Cross Oregon Inlet Bridge and you are on Hatteras Island.
Forest trails are in Buxton, another 20 minutes.

I have been riding and exploring the place for 20 years on mountain bike, dirt bike, hiking, horseback and in the Jeep.
The jeeptrails access hiking trails and singletrack.
There is 1 private road and it is marked. It's mostly slow stuff because of the whoops. There are some fast parts for rally style driving once a pass is made to check for anyone else. Mostly shaded too.
I rarely see anyone back there. Occasional walkers on Sundays. Horses on the back trails in the morning.
There is a scenic gravel road in Nags Head behind The Nature Conservancy. Nice drive with hiking trails off to the sides.

It isn't the kind of place I would get stuck? I don't have a winch

Not at all.
I only use 4x4 to make one turn. The rest is hard-pack and a little sandy. I do not even air down. However letting a bit of air out will smooth it out. A lot of it you could ride a bicycle on. You will not get stuck.
I live 15-20 minutes from there. The beach driving is closer.
I Have a garage and welder if you have any projects.
I just installed a LED bar inside the front bumper.
