Only Peter's Mill & Taskers Gap have a fee.

Other privately owned parks will also have fees.

All other trails are free as long as they are open to the public.

Shoe creek is open and free to drive across , but this time of year the backside of the mountain will have thick ice over the trail in places. Be very prepared if your heading up there in the near future..

DeLorme Atlases are a sure bet. (ADC doesn't make paper maps anymore, rooster-suckers)
Check on Jeep Forum regional Virginia, and the only sticky is an interactive map that one of our own made (Matt?). Rt. 56 and Perkins Mill Rd. are the two ends of Shoe Creek Trail (aka Crabtree Falls)

I'm just here for the gasoline. --Max

Hey guys, got a few questions.

The Mrs wants to go on a just-us weekender trip. She is very much down for scenic drives. I, of course, am trying to squeeze in a little wheeling. What I am wondering is whats the story about Stony Run Jeep Trail, Bald Mountain Trail, etc. I want to shack up in hotel for the weekend, go for nice summer drive that is scenic for her and off pavement for me. Basically, what (AND WHERE) can I go that is not Potts, Flagpole, or Shoe Creek? Been around those parts plenty. I'll be alone, though-that bothers her more than me. LOL I don't think there are too crazy trails out there other than that stretch of Potts, but even some mud would be cool.

Help a Jeeper out!

that is also called the big levels area. if you look at the map, there is a "straight" path up the mountain, and a path with switchbacks. straight path is harder, the switchbacks path is more of a scenic drive.
starting at the north end is going "up" the mountain.

2 vehicles of us spent 3 days camping there last summer. NOONE else came through the trail. no phone signals up there though.
its a very long walk to get help

FYI.. something has happened to the Virginia Legal OHV Trails google map.
alot of points / trails have dissapeared.
looks like google made some change...

Sounds awesome, where is this "straight path up the mountain" start? Have you an interstate exit, intersection, google map screen cap?

Gotta find a local hotel!
