No Plans Yet, working all weekend coming up.

Shoe Creek: Is Open!

Big Levels: Closed Until April 1st(call Ranger District for updates, might open early)

Harrisonburg Area: Open as far as I know, but not 100% sure.

Weather is supposed to be awesome next weekend. You guys trying to camp or just go out for the day? Either way, I'm interested.

flagpole, 2nd mountain/dictims, and at least part of long run and stateline are open. Shoecreek is close to you and probably a great way to get her broken in

I read on another forum that the bottom half of Shoe Creek is a little rough for a stocker. I think we will just do the top half as a down and back day trip.

I took my wife and three kids all over those trails a few weeks ago in our Stock 2012 JKU. One small scratch on the gas tank skid was all the trail damage..it could have been avoided, but we were having fun...

Custom Built NP231's Complete Teralow & 2wdlow Units available.

Flag pole front side trail is very easy and no problem for a stocker.. back side is little more technical but is not impossible..

to put shoecreek in perspective for you I went through it in a bone stock extended cab colorado... I think I had about 28 or 29" tires at the time, but thats just the main trail there are tons of other obstacles for for many rigs to have fun on

Yup, from 33 its very easy. From Union Springs Rd it is fairly wash out and a couple spots are tricky. I could almost not get up the staircase obstacle a few weeks ago.

My GF goes to JMU. We will be doing a long run road overnight trip in april, we should meet up

There's a chance I'll be up there. If so you won't miss us, 97 sahara tj on 33's with brand new bumpers, fenders and side armor. And a black ranger on 33's with flags flying and the cb blasting

After seeing the pic's from WahooJeep's trail ride at Flagpole, I am now leaning more to doing a day trip up in that neck of the woods. I will admit, I only have a few weekends left in VA before I deploy again.

Is anyone heading out for a Saturday day trip? Jon-Jon, are you going to be at Shoecreek in the morning?

I can do anything, just give me instructions.

Unfortunately, I will be in California during the month of April, but back just in time for Wheelin for Hope at Oakridge.

I was up there yesterday for the day, ran the trail up then went to the water falls, and then back down the trail. It was great! Had the whole trail to myself. Seemed rockier than last time i was there haha.
