Re: Trails in VA

puddles shmuddles, some of those are like 4ft. deep. haha. The rain gullies coming down the mountain are tricky too. I've been down those trails when I was at Tech. We ended up in a thornbush prickly pear patch, my friend drove his K5 in it and said, "it's ok, they didnt scratch the paint at all." His truck was white, of course you can't see scratches in a '79 K5. The Jeep I was in went through and had new racing stripes afterwards. ha!

Damn those trails were fun. I bet they're quite nasty now. I'll be going to Tech in September... I won't be diving into any thornbushes though.

Re: Trails in VA

Thought I'd revive this old thread. I live in Harrisonburg, Va and have been itching to do some mild- moderate off roading but can never find anyone to go with. If anyone is planning on doing any wheeling this fall and would like one more for the group shoot me a pm.

Re: Trails in VA

I went up to Shoe Creek in mid October with one other truck. Caught up with a gang of FJ's from FJCruiserForums on the trails. Was a pretty fun ride until my friend broke his driveshaft mid-trail. We camped overnight, bonfire, beers, and had a good time. Towed him off the trail next morning and headed home. I'd recommend Shoe Creek. I've heard you can do it stock, but there are some places you need some extra clearance. Nice big boulders to climb, steep inclines/declines, and some water crossings too.

Re: Trails in VA

I was researching this topic and saw some trails to the west of harrisonburg called like Long Run, and Flag Pole and some random FR numbers. Whats the deal with these? Are they worth doing? I live in Norfolk so thats a solid drive for me and would like assurance that its worth a weekend trip. Would like something too with some solid obstacles. I like a challenge and my friends have way more capable jeeps.

Re: Trails in VA

Since my last post i have joined a 4wheel drive club up in blacksburg and have found out about a couple trails, theres one up near harrisonburg area (i think) called shoe creek, i havent been personally but people make day trips out of it and say its not hard at all, then if you google potts mountain jeep trail its a little further from you but definitely has some pretty good obstacles on the main trail then theres other little trails that break off that have some hardish obstacles, i sustained bed and bumper damage at potts pretty much only because it had been raining for 3 or 4 days before and was raining the day we went so it was very very slick, i would also recommend at potts having someone thats pretty built with a winch go first (just my 2cents) and there is a big field in close to the middle of the trail that you can camp on. then in a few weeks we are going to harlan kentucky for what is supposedly a huge crawling park with miles and miles of trails that would easily make a couple days camping trip

Re: Trails in VA

my buddies have all been to harlen, they had nothing but good things to say. Shoe creek is right by wintergreen ski resort, i did that stock on worn highway thread tires. the hike to crabtree falls is worth the trip tho. We did uwharrie in NC last weekend, thats pretty close to greensboro which is probably closer to you in blacksburg than us at the beach. Uwharrie is pretty epic for trails and overall camping experience.
