12*2*11 Peter Mills Run

Would anyone be down for going up That Friday to camp and do the trail the next day?
My buddies and I (17 years old) would probably get there around 10 pm. First offroad experience. Would love for other Jeepers to come chill with us and have a great time!
Lemme know if this is something yall are interested in. We'd be driving from Richmond city so that's why it'd take us a while to get there.

I can't do it that weekend but this December would you be down for going there on a Wednesday night and wheeling Thursday? I'm in high school as well but also have a job and i can't get off every weekend.

Will do. I'll actually be there on the 17th for the first time if its not snowing with the NoVa Jeepers for a Member's only ride. After I get a feel for the trails (namely Flagpole) I want to go back with my older brother and neighbor with his Jeep. What's your set up?

1. An address to plug into GPS.
2. How much money to bring.
3. Where I can camp.
4. It says theyre open April-November... does this mean they won't be open December 2nd?

THanks again.. sorry for all the posts.

Hectic, in your opinion is Peters Mill a good trail for the OP, a first timer with no wheeling experience and a stock TJ going by himself? I haven't been there but I feel like Flagpole might be more mild.

I just spoke to Hectic and he said that this is actually much easier than the other one, and that he has ran this trail in his JK without touching 4wd so you're good to go.

As long as you're stock you should be good to go without rubbing. With stock tires, the axle will stop going up and hit the bumpstops before it hits or rubs anywhere. I don't even think that'll happen on this trail though.

okay so you definitely recommend doing without the sway bars then? and i should deflate tires to 15 psi correct?
