After CroZet got closed, I have the itch for some wheeling. I usually go there so I don't want to drive too far, from Richmond.

Where have you guys been going?

Shoe creek is a great place to camp and get some trails in. Just not enough tough obstacles for me. I do love going though

Shoe Creek is a nice easy trail. if you want something a little more interesting you could go to Big Levels. last time i was there there were water pits, some easy/moderate crawling obstacles, great scenic views and loads of good places to stop and camp. its about an 8 mile trail and usually takes me about 2 1/2-3 hours to run if im not camping on it. i suggest airing ur tires down as it is a little bumpier than shoe creek.

I was seening of anyone knows of places like that, since that was about the only place I would go.
then it sounds like you would like Gore... check out the videos in my signature for some of my trips there. from Wild to Mild
