Looking for trails

I am a full-time RVer, visiting my son in the Richmond area. I would like to take him 4-wheeling this weekend. Any suggestion for trails within 1-2 hour drive?

Would the Shoe Creek Trail be a good one?

We have a Jeep Rubicon, no winch, lifted three inches, with standard sized tires.

Thanks for the information. I think we will try Shoe Creek and perhaps Big Levels on Sunday, October 23.

Shoe creek is a very nice beginners run but rain can cause it to mild up some! Compared to big levels its about half the size.

We did big levels about a month ago we had 10 jeeps and it took about 5 hours to go the whole 8.8 miles. But yet again we did have to stop and get one jeep running again!

Both trails are very fun but I like big levels more also its closer for me!

You'll have either way, just male sure you take pictures. If you need more detailed maps or either trail pm me and I can get you some awesome maps!

Thanks, I think we will try Big Levels. My son has never done real 4-wheeling, so I would like a trail that is interesting, but of moderate difficulty. A good map would be helpful, but i am unsure how to get you my Email address.

We went to Big Levels for a run Sunday. This is as an interesting trail with some challenging side trails that leave and re-join the main trail. We took a side road up Bald Mountain that was fairly easy. Had to use lockers in the middle of on very muddy puddle, believe it or not, but we could have skirted most of it, had we chosen. Met only 2-3 other vehicles and one hiker -- pretty light traffic for a lovely Fall Sunday afternoon.

Thanks to all the advice that helped me chose this trail and introduce my son to 4-wheeling.
