I live in Ashburn and just got my first Jeep a month ago. I have been having trouble finding places online to go offroading for beginners. It seems confusing with all the rules concerning permits and laws and stuff. I'm new to all this and just want to find a place locally to drive without making a weekend out of it. Any advice?

Hey NoVAGrrl82,

There are at least three of us who live just down the road from you in CountrySide. Sorry it seems so confusing. I bought my JK last year and started out on Wrangler Forum, too.

There are lots of places that you can take your JKU off the pavement around here (meaning within a 2 hr drive) and not tear it up. There's Red Cloud Off-Road Park near Woodbridge. There's also Peter's Mill in the George Washington National Forest near Edinburg. The Big Dog events out near Winchester, and lastly the new Chaos Off-Road Park near Capon Bridge, WV.

A little further away you have miles and miles of George Washington National Forest road including the well-known Flagpole run. Lastly, you have Rausch Creek up in PA which is sort of the wheeling Mecca for those in the NoVa area. You can do these as day trips.

Peter's Mill opens early April as does Red Cloud.
Chaos is open this coming weekend for an event. Many trails are stock friendly.
Big Dogs has an event in April. Trails are varied. I love the Big Dogs event.
GWNF trails, for the most part, is open year round and stock friendly.

Recommend that you join one of the many clubs in the area.
I'm a member of NOVA Jeepers and VA Jeep Offroad on Facebook. There is also the Off Camber Crawlers club. Good club.

Best thing for you to do is head up to Rausch Creek for 101/201 training. The trails are great and the instructor will take good care of you.

PM me and I'll make some other suggestions.

George Washington & Jefferson National Forests - Peters Mill Run/Taskers Gap OHV System

Peters mill run is the perfect place for your first time. It's like the bunny hill of trails. The trail is enough where 2 vehicles can passed each other so you don't have to worry about scratching your vehicle against tree limbs.

Yes you can drive up and down it all day. You could do it a few times then go get lunch then hit the trail again. It's only one trail and really not that long but a good place to give you a taste of what off roading is like.

I have never seen it crowded but since you want to take your time, if someone comes shows up on the trail just pull off to the side and wave them by. If you go first thing in the morning you probably have the place to yourself. Most people show up around lunch time.

Hey there .. I 2nd what MikeJKUR said, you might want to try that out first. Definitely a good place to get your feet wet and very stock friendly. Don't think anyone would get pushy with you out there, mostly good folks on the trail usually more than willing to help you out. I would recommend riding with another Jeep just for safe keeping, but the trail is fairly easy. You might want to take the trail to the end and come back, but yes, $5 for all you can drive!

Haymarket here as well… and I'm sure I've seen this jeep in the picture cruising around!

I had a black 2 dr 2013 Rubicon soft top… which is gone… and replaced with a 2014 Grand Cherokee summit ecodiesel.


I still try and wave to the Wranglers, but they pay me no mind.
