Wk Beyond Shoe Creek

Just did Shoe Creek this past weekend, it was a blast.

Wondering if people had gps/google coordinates to other trail heads?

From hwy 56, Head north on the blueridge parkway,I want to say it's mile post 23 but could be mistaken it's called balled mtn overlook, that's the trail head for big levels. Very easy to find

Sweet - is it similar terrain? I'm rocking a lifted Grand Cherokee, not a rock krawler.

Also, is it campable - that's what my buds and I like to do. 4x4 + camp fire + camping.

It's comparable to shoe creek. It's alot longer and more trails but it's all doable in a near stock rig and there's plenty of places to camp. No check in or $$ involved. It's a good place to take some friends I normally tow my jeep up in my truck now so I can carry all the gear and people in it, park/camp at the top and go wheeling from there. Lots of amazing views. It follows the ridge line for a couple miles

Be careful on big levels though…ran the trail end of July and there are some really deep mud holes that were very full because of the recent rain. I have a 5" lift and the water came up to the fenders on my Rubi. There are bypasses for most of the deeper holes though. Its also bumpier than shoe creek so letting ur tires to about 20psi will make the ride alot smoother too.

Sounds good - So as long as the rain cooperates sounds like a good late fall trail.

You don't have a gps or google maps coord for the trail head entrance and exit do you?

There's also a few more trails located near the same area as these, and as far as I know they are legal but since I have never seen another post about them I won't give away their locations unless we make a group trail ride this fall
