Shoe creek when its warm.
 
Want to get a big ride together when it's a little warmer and sunny. Around end of April or early may that way everybody has time to plan it. Would like to have a good size group and people that have been there to lead because last time nobody ha been there and we had no clue where to go. As it get closer we can set the date and time and where to meet

if you can do it more in the later part of may i would be glad to make the trip up that way...

Coryb426 03-19-2012 04:03 PM

May even do it again late may. But also want mid late April

dipstickinva 03-19-2012 04:39 PM

any idea if you can do any camping up there?

dcstewart 03-19-2012 05:37 PM

I have seen lots of people camp there, but I have not camped there. Looks nice though.

dipstickinva 03-19-2012 07:20 PM

I think then when i head up there. i might have to bring up some camping gear then.

Drock1979 03-19-2012 08:11 PM

Camping is great and I may have my ride trail ready by then,(mainly waiting for new tires) If so I can go and will help navigate as I've been several times.

Coryb426 03-19-2012 09:06 PM

Sounds good drock

Drock1979 03-19-2012 09:22 PM

Me and some friends are talking about heading that way around the end of April anyway, it would be sweet if it was the same time cause there is 6 of us to add to the group gathered here.

dipstickinva 03-19-2012 10:16 PM

anyone have an address or town its in? i want to see how long it will take me to get there.

Coryb426 03-19-2012 11:03 PM

It will be a Saturday when we go or possibly a Sunday. That would be great to go the same day

Drock1979 03-19-2012 11:19 PM

Couldn't tell you the city but it near oak ridge. And yea we usually go Saturday and come back sunday

dipstickinva 03-19-2012 11:27 PM

are you talking about oak ridge just on the other side of danville? or is there another oak ridge?

Drock1979 03-19-2012 11:37 PM

Same one they do jamborees at and yes I think it is near danvile

Coryb426 03-20-2012 01:35 AM

It's up closer to Charlottesville

Drock1979 03-20-2012 02:07 AM

I always head there from my buddies in Nelson county and it's not far from there

Coryb426 03-20-2012 02:46 AM

It's maybe a 2 hour drive with gas stops and maybe food from Roanoke

dipstickinva 03-20-2012 10:14 AM

Coryb426 03-20-2012 10:51 AM

Va. It's kinda between Lynchburg and Charlottesville

Coryb426 03-20-2012 10:59 AM

It's Alhambra,Va. The trail head gps coordinates are 37' 47.263 N 079' 06.173 W. I used the gps coordinates to find it when we went

Tjdude08 03-24-2012 01:28 PM

Its like 20-30 minutes past past Amherst. Ill be up for the trip. Cory did you get bigger tires and more lift?

dcstewart 03-24-2012 02:59 PM

Here's a great map. Shoe Creek and Big Levels can be done in the same day. They are close together.

Tonka-Toy 03-26-2012 09:14 PM

Coryb426 03-26-2012 11:50 PM

You know I'm letting you know

Jbraswell 03-31-2012 02:27 PM

whats the trails like up there? never been and im sitting on 31.5's with a 2.5" lift, but would love to try it out sometime.

Tjdude08 03-31-2012 02:35 PM

from what we went on, with no experience from a guide I guess you could say, it was pretty sweet. In stock on 31s and didn't really have any trouble. Just avoided it mainly. You'd be plenty fine. It's more stocker friendly from what everyone says.

BBQJeep 04-02-2012 06:20 PM

I want to go too! Been there once and need to go back!
