If it is the same one where i went camping, i only did part of it, but its not that great. Although the one i did, you had to pay 95 bucks to do the whole thing, so i am not sure and it seemed more fun for dirtbikes than jeeps.

Again i am not sure; but the problem with Rausche creek is that it is a very long trip for some who live in DC and southern MD or people who do not trust their rigs or driving skills yet (like me!) I personally do not think my rig is capable enough for RC yet, i require at least larger tires and a lift before ever considering that as an option cause i heard some horror stories with people's trucks breaking down or damage to teh driveshafts

Like I said previously, Greenridge is what you make it, and it's not Rausch Creek. Could I do much harder trails, YES, but o don't feel like paying $35 bucks to join. Another $20 everyday I wanna go there, and $60 in gas just to drive 3 1/2 hours. That in itself is why I wheel Greenridge for free...

I wheel greenridge more often then Rausch but Rausch is a wheeling trip that you will talk about until the next time you go where as Greenridge you will just say, it was good to get off the pavement. Rausch is worth every penny that you have to pay to wheel there, hands down, its that awesome!

dont you need to pay to get a permit to go there with you jeep?

I would prefer to go to Greenridge my first time since I have never gone offroad before.

YJgirl: I live in Rockville so not too far from Baltimore and TJe0454 lives right by me. We could get a small convoy going to Greenridge at some point.

I would agree with that statement Militaryman. And I have no problem making a trip to Rausch. My issue is how many times in a year could I make the trip, maybe 2 or 3 times max. I think they charge to much for a guy only going 3 times. I could see if I was there once a month.

It is very difficult to find an area that is as accessible and cheap as Rausch Creek. By cheap, I mean it is nearly impossible to find an off road park on the east coast with the wide variety of trail levels that Rausch Creek has for the amount of money they ask.

For beginners, using Greenridge is a great way to learn how to drive off road and how your vehicle performs. Plus, it's free.

Once you get the hang of it and drop more money in your rig, you'll be itching the see how it performs in more difficult terrain.

Rausch Creek will be waiting for you.

Very good point about learning to drive your jeep and some of it's capabilities at Greenridge. And I'm sure I'll be at RC this spring sometime. I read a post about a place in Hagerstown anybody got info on this place. Also, read a post about a new place in Pa.

Any info on these places yet?

Greenridge is a nice trip and it's very scenic. It's an 18 mile loop so it's a fun little drive. There are some parts that will help teach a beginner to think about which lines to take, but nothing drastic. Depending upon the weather or time of year it can be very muddy or very dusty. I'd be happy to go with a group when the weather turns warmer. Parts of the trail are narrow and you will get a couple of pinstripes. I won't go until I can put the soft top down because I don't want to risk tearing it up. You will definitely scratch up the plastic windows at the very least.

Pa? Would that be Trails Rd, Michieux St Forest, Rock Run ORV Park, or the new park in Altoona?

Understandable; it took me some time to learn. Going from compacts to jeeps is a huge jump.

Makes sense. Start with easy trails then gradually work your way up. No one says you have to start out on the most difficult trails. Do as much as you feel comfortable with. We started wheeling dirt roads on our daily drivers. Then we made little mods that wouldn't affect on-road drivability. You'd be surprised how much you learn when you do the mods and basic maintenance on your own rig. But be careful, you'll get bitten by the bug. We went from a single daily driver to six jeeps, a diesel tow rig and a 30' gooseneck trailer to tow our 'comp' rigs with.

Wow, and I thought I was going overboard with mods, planning, and designing.

I told myself when i bought my scion * no mods till its paid off* now i have about 8 grand into it and still have 2 more years till its paid off lol. i saved alot of money doing the mods on my scion myself and now i know everything about my scion like the back of my hand. One good thing about buying this used jeep is it was already lifted with big tires saves me some money because i think im already slightly bitten by the bug lol!

We will see.....chances are you will upgrade the suspension and tires do wear down and you might want a larger size, you never know....JK

But I did the same thing with no mods till its paid off, that lasted 4 hours. Nothing serious but by week 2 i had it stripped down and i was bedlinning it.

Hopefully you are making in the 7 figures and you can share some wealth since at least you dont have to buy tires JUST SAYING....
