1st Real Jeep Trail - Peters Mill Run - VA

Hey guys. I have a stock 2000 TJ, and yesterday I took it to Peters Mill Run out in Edinburg, VA to camp and trail through today. Since it's stock I was a little worried but it did great and I'm definitely going to be adding a lift kit and better tires soon. First real jeep trail; I've only gone on construction properties with a ton of mud and friends property with a lot of land to go crazy in. I'll hopefully have some videos up using a GoPro we duct taped to the hood, but for now here's some pics and a quick snippet of some frozen over mud puddles we went crazy in.

When the trail bug bites it bites hard - love your grill inserts by the way!

Did this trail on Jan 2nd. Was a little disappointed about how easy and short it was; but still a good time. It's certainly worthwhile if you are driving through the area and have not done it yet but I wouldn't drive more than an hour to check it out. It's takes about 1.5 hours if you take your time.

Haha yup. I drove 3 hours.... But it was fun. No trails are really near me, unfortunately.

Camp

Where did you camp at when you went to Peters Mill Run? Also, is there anything i need to do besides just drive there? (like a permit or anything)

Yes, you need to get a permit $5 per driver. Think I found list of vendors on a site somewhere. Check on George Washington National Forest web site. There's camping in GWNF, too.
