Thanks for the help!
In Shenandoah County the pickings are sort of slim. You can cruise some of the forest roads around Wolf Gap. When the seasonal roads are open it's better. Way better.
Further south, Flagpole is ok but I like the Long Run forest road system down on the north side of Hwy 33 west of Harrisonburg. There are more roads in there than you can do in a day. You have Second Mountain, Dictum Ridge, and Feedstone Mountain plus if you want to make a big day of it you can exit out to the north on Rocky Run road.
Look for one of my recent Flagpole posts. I posted a Garmin Adventure link that shows quite a few trails. While many of the roads I named above require 4WD there are none that have a technical crux like Flagpole.
