What area are you going to be wheeling in?

Actually, it's pronounced "mill-e-wah-que" which is Algonquin for "the good land."

It takes about 3.5 hours more or less depending on speed. We made it there in 2.5 before but last weekend it took 5 haha had women with us. And that sounds good I get off work at 4 unless
I cut out early and I'm planning on staying Friday and Saturday night. Hopefully crabtree meadows isn't full of people so we can camp there for free

You can camp on shoe creek, there are campsites all along the trail.

Big levels was very overgrown up the center "hard" section at the beginning of April. If you don't want pin-striping I would recommend sticking to the switch-back main trail.

Sounds good, I'm down for camping 2 nights. Not always fun to wheel all day then drive home. We can always meet down the road somewhere. If enough people come and we can all meet by me or up 64 a little more then caravan it from there.

I have no worries about pin-stripping, I've already started my collection

Thanks for the info. I also know a family that had a private trail down the road about 5 miles from the overlook so if they are up there that weekend we can all try it out also

@jeepnation: we can defiantly meet up somewhere hopefully some more people join in on this.

Its about 20 min. north of shoe creek. Starts at the bald mountain overlook on blue ridge parkway.

Theres a couple of rocks to play on and a few little mudholes, but its actually pretty boring. Its like a messed up dirt road 90% of the time. I did the whole trail in 2hi until i got stuck in the mudhole. Then i switched to 4 hi. Shoe creek isnt as long of a trail, but theres a few more things to play on.
