Thumbs up Shenandoah Valley Trail riding

Finally, Got to go off-roading this weekend with some friends from work and brought the brother in his Suzuki Samurai. I had 2 cliches before I even got to the camp site. The Besttop rack that mounts to the rear door was flexing too much (strapped it down... issue gone), the second one was the emergency flasher switch fried and left me with constant brake lights on. I had to play with it to turn 'em off when I parked, then play with the switch to get it to come on when going down the road. Unless I drive around with the 4-way flashers on.

Thanks Zuba! Here's more

Shenandoah River near Woodstock, Va.


On top of the Mountain for where the Fire tower resides




John hits this little mound... Don't read the the little sign! We immediately turned him around and headed on our way down to the other side of the mountain once actually read it ourselves.


A Kodak moment, with the the exception of the Sammy driver (My brother), we were trying to convert him all weekend long.


My brother hits the same mole hill after I went thru it with no worries (He has lockers & 5:13 gears)


Todd leads us thru the trail as I follow behind Chris to get some shots


John and his YJ heading down the gravel path that leads to the trail



Thanks for looking at them.

Dan

We camped out Elizabeth Furnace camp site.

Trailed ride thru Edinburg Gap Road thru the mountain.

Then headed to Woodstock Fire Observation Tower.

Which we were in Virginia.

Is this part of Peters Mill Run, Or Taskers Gap? We have done the Peters Mill Run a couple of times in the last month or so, But I do not Recognize any of those Areas.
If not, Would love to know where this trail is. And Def have not seen the fire tower either. Any info would Help.....If you Get out again let us know Maybe we can ride

Rick,

Honestly, I don't think I had seen signs that mentioned taskers Gap or Peters Mill Run. I was not the leader of the pack and had not been to these places before. However, the Edinburgh Gap Road (Trail) we were on lasted 4.5 miles and we stopped midway to head towards the Fire Tower. If you use Google Map and type in these places, you can see the trails easily.
1. Elizabeth Furnace camp site.
2. Edinburg Gap Road thru the mountain.
3. Woodstock Fire Observation Tower.

All are near Front Royal, Virginia (south by south-west)

Dan

Rick, Glad to have helped and yeah, I know the feeling about not getting out enough and you're welcome!

I won't be doing any more wheeling this year until spring possibly. Going away for a bit. Happy Wheelin!

Dan
