Shoe Creek has never been worth the trip IMO, but even more now since you have to turn around and go back the same way. Your call...
Saw the link but dont see what you are talking about? You can enter and exit from rt 56 and at the bottom. Both ways are legal to enter and exit.

Read it again and look at the map. No you can't. The bottom is private property and is not a legal exit.

Even more reason to build my own trails on my land... switch it to flagpole/ reddish knob? I've always enjoyed those trails

Yeah we were talking to a guy at the last meet about how nothing but the main trail is off limits. Which really surprised me since nothing is clearly marked, and I've been there numerous times over the past couple of years.

The bottom is 100% legal.... its a public road that leads straight into the trail. Look at the map again and you can see the road number... i have and other people i know have talked to the people who live there. They have no problems with it. And most people start at the bottom anyways.


To help you understand more. Were the red begins at the bottom is were is the beginning/staging area. The road below it is a public road! There is nothing illegal about it.

Yeah very shallow mud holes and very few. Yes very dry so must dust before u hit the rocks. Took about 2 hr going straight up not the winding sissy stuff. I think if my odometer is right it was about 15-18 miles from bottom to the top where the parkway is. Here is the link to my build and on the couple last pages are pics and a video of my trip.

Look, I'm not going to argue with you about it. The main hard road is public. The driveway (marked 827) that leads from the last stream crossing, past the man's house, and to the hard road is freakin private property, ok? A right of way was never deeded to the Forest Service so that is not authorized access without permission from the property owner. The red part of that map is the only part you can be on, and any marking in the white areas is private property.
Try and justify it however you want, but just because we've been using it for many years doesn't mean it was right. It was never right...
Questions? Send a message to the Land Use Officer at VA4WDA.

The trail only takes like 2 hours to complete anyway. The long gravel road is whats freaking annoying!
I wish the gravel rd was what was off limits!!

Just a heads up about Bald Mtn, The straight up paths at the bottom that bypass the winding stuff is illegal and off limits. If you look closely you will see a small sign or two that say it is off limits. Someone may have removed them but if you are caught on the path you will get ticketed. I know for a fact that Rangers do hide up there to catch people. I know it is not as fun but stay off of that path please.
