Help for George Washington National Forest

Me and a few friends are finally going on our first big offroading trip since buying our jeeps over a year ago. We have settled on GWNF and i have been searching for a trail map or any other info and all i can find is the name of trails but i have no idea how to get to them. If anyone knows the area could they possibly give me directions to the trails and what type of terrain i can expect. Were driving about 4 hours to get there so i don't want us to be disappointed if we don't do alot of wheeling. Thanks in advance

Pick up a Virginia atlas. They have detailed maps of the National forest. I live in the middle of the Jefferson National Forest. There are trails near me that are labeled as Jeep trails in the atlas. They have state road numbers and can befound on GPS.

If anyone is interested in going any weekend let me know. I know of a handful of trails in the area from tooling around by myself out there. Would love to check it out with someone else so I wouldn't have to worry about getting stuck...
