Day's Drive from Arlington
 
Hey Guys!

Newbie here looking for fun places to drive his 09 Unlimited Sahara that could be an easy (less than 2 hour) day trip from Arlington. Not looking for rocks courses or anything too challenging, but just somewhere to enjoy riding through trees without other buildings around.

I'm a first time Jeep owner and have never been off-road in anything (except a wrong turn in my Mazda3), so go easy on me.

Thanks!

Yall check out the shoe creek thread. I went down there a couple weeks ago with a bunch of the guys that post in that thread. I live in Tysons Corner and made it down there in just over 2-2.25 hours. It's not a bad drive at all.

The trails in Roanoke(Taskers Gap, Peter Mill run) are farther away and still in the GWNF and are fun too. Check those out too

Getting mine the 21st give or take a day. I will be down for a trip down 81. I have done Peters Mill Run a bunch in an FJ Cruiser, it is about 1.5 hours drive and a good beginner trail. There a bunch further down 81 just past JMU on the VA/WVA border that are 2 1/4 hours away. I will post closer to that time and get a quick trip setup for late August early September if anyones up for it.
