I was just wondering if anyone on here has every been to potts mtn jeep trail in va? I'm on the nc va border and am trying to find some other places to go and have been reading about this but I can't really find a location for it besides that its in craig county va which doesn't really help much, and if any one has been is it worth the trip up or not really, any help is appreciated

I've heard of Potts Mt. From Roanoke, you take VA 311 north off I-81 up to New Castle, then a few back roads to trail head. There was a forest fire there back in the spring not sure if it's still open, best to call Jefferson NF ranger office for up to date info. Where you located, I'm in Winston Salem. Have you been to Shoe Creek, VA? Pretty cool place to wheel/camp.

Shoe Creek is north of Lynchburg in GWNF; take US29 N to just north of Amherst and then back roads to trail head

1945 Perkins Mill Rd
Tyro‎ Virginia‎ 22967
United States

Trail head starts out as a dirt road, few houses along the road, it follows the creek with a couple of creek crossings
When you headin' up that way, I may be interested in a few weeks...

Took me about 3 hrs to get to Shoe Creek, we camped on the trail last Feb. it snowed a little, there are other trails near there off the BRP, Big Levels, Crabtree Falls, etc.
