Advice about where to find some trails to drive this weekend
 
Hey everyone,
With the weather in mid 60s this weekend I was hoping to take my new wife and two younger kids (6yrs & 4yrs) out on some trails in our new unlimited. I have never driven off-road and with having the kids with me I am looking for something fun, but not too crazy. Does anyone have a suggestion on where to go or a favorite place to go?

Where do you live.

Slewis9192 11-08-2012 12:03 PM

Sorry about that. It would help if I told everyone that I live in the northern Virginia area around Leesburg.

You still need some help clearing/building things up?

You keep mentioning your trails, just wondering if you'll share :angel:

st0rmtr00per 11-16-2012 02:25 PM

Yeah, I could really use someone with a winch or great lift and tires, I am 20 feet from connecting a 2 mile loop. Location is manassas. Thats all I will post o this site. You wanna join this weekend? hit me up. PM me and we can meet up and go.

Hey there. A buddy of mine and I did Peter's Mill 1.5 months ago. Nothing too strenuous, but some of the rocks make you hope you don't have to break out the spare. But we both took our new JKUs out there - mine stock sahara, his stock Rubi - and we had fun. Enough to get it dirty and nothing too big. Tasker's gap is right around the corner, and I believe it's shorter.

This link has most everything you need, even though this just talks about ATV/motorcycle riding, but it's got the directions, etc. Just make certain you stop at one of the gas stations to purchase the $5 pass.

btw - left the kids off the trail the first time, but would have no problem taking them back with us!

ltdanyj 11-25-2012 10:28 PM

Yup, Peter's Mill is a great trail to get started on! Not too strenuous, and a great intro for the wife and kids before you do the bigger stuff... Watch out for ATVs/bikes though!

Hello Fellow Leesburg Jeeper. Hope to have mine out of the factory and on trails nearby in a week or two. Please tell me what you find in the way of close by trails.

Dabrewski 12-12-2012 08:42 PM

so have you gotten you're green machine yet?

danrb 12-12-2012 09:05 PM

Last I heard was it would be here Friday. Hope so! Found any more good trails?

Dabrewski 12-16-2012 08:48 PM

Still waiting. Peters Mill run is the first drive after I get it. Maybe next weekend?

SHYUperman 12-17-2012 09:45 AM

Hit me up if you guys go to Peters Mill Run. Just note that the trail is closed after the 3rd Monday in January.

danrb 12-18-2012 07:09 AM

If my jeep gets here before the weekend, i'm up for a trip. Anyone else?

SHYUperman 12-18-2012 09:21 AM

Definitely, I'm down for Saturday or Monday

zr.despain14 12-18-2012 06:04 PM

I am game for both days. Let me know where it sounds like taskers gap or peters mill.

danrb 12-18-2012 06:53 PM

Just picking up my jkur, so I'm in for the drive

SHYUperman 12-18-2012 08:30 PM

Congrats! So what day you guys want to go? What time?

SafetyThird 12-19-2012 08:01 PM

I'll be out there Saturday in a green 4 door JK with winch and rack. I'll probably be on cb channel 17. I'm coming from Baltimore so it will be late morning.

zr.despain14 12-19-2012 08:13 PM

Monday

Wanna go Monday anyone?

SHYUperman 12-19-2012 11:14 PM

I'm down for Monday if we go in the morning

danrb 12-20-2012 05:39 AM

I'm down for either day. Maybe start a new thread and get a few more?

Gbobva 12-20-2012 06:10 AM

looks like a bunch of us will be out on Saturday... I will probably be heading out from NOVA around 9:30 (so in Edinburg around 11am)

We should organize a Saturday trip then. I'll be busting my Jeep's cherry on this trip. Still undecided on Sat or Monday.

Is there a crew of NOVA Jeepers heading there this Saturday?

I can make Saturday or Monday... I'd prefer Monday, but, if there are more people able to go on Saturday, I'm game too.
