Do you know what part of Va?

I see you are from C'ville, me too.
I know of Peavine Hollow near Free Union, don't know if there's a trail there.

Of the subject:
Let me know if you would like to wheel sometime.
I'm just learning the trails around here, nothing to serious, I'm mostly stock except for some armor.

Well I replied in a PM to BRAY6 but I figured I would post here as well.

Peavine Mountain is not the same as Peavine Hollow. I know the Peavine hollow area but do not know if theres anything up there. I would guess its all privet land but have not checked it out.

I am looking for local trails also. Detailed directions seem to be hard to come by. I am in the Lynchburg area. I attempted Shoe Creek today and it scared the heck out of me. I have been there before when the weather was wet or clear and it was cool until a downed tree on the top of the mountain stopped me in my tracks. I think once past the hiking entrance it would be alright but going in it was a sheet of ice with about 2 feet of snow before you slide off the mountain. I aired down to almost 10 psi and still had no traction most of the way. If it wasn't for the little bit of snow on the sides I woulda been screwed. I guess it was just too cold up there. I'll definitely keep an eye on this thread to see if anybody lets go of any info. I know the parkway is closed so I haven't been able to scout the trails off of there yet.

Good Luck,

Mrcln1

Peavine Mountain (lynchburg)

Directions: Take Route 130 east toward the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just south of the Blue Ridge Parkway, turn left onto Route 727 go approximately 1.5 miles and turn left onto Forest Service Road 318. (Route 727 turns into Route 610.) Seasonal road closure due to weather and road conditions to protect the natural resources.

I wanna say I've been on this trail. I started in Big Island just across the river. From what I can remeber they open and close portions of it at different times by moving dirt here and there. We actually went under the parkway at one time. While it's nothing really extreme there's a few mud holes and climbs depending on what's open. Great scenic trip and fun to explore. I'm probably going to try and head out there before my baby gets here. I'll post to see if anyone wants to tag along
