West of Staunton and south of West Augusta. The quality and quantity of forest roads in this area is very good.

Im totally down for this! I think this is the new Walmart shopping center right at 50 and Loudoun County Parkway, if Im not mistaken. (Ive also been found to be wrong.... 1 or 2 times....)
Hey, let me know when you do this run. If I'm not busy moving, I'll try to make it!

I have a '15 so although the info and Hands on will be great knowledge, I would have nothing to work on I'm afraid. 1 year of use isnt going to constitute enough rust to need to grind off with hand tools.

Are you talking about the Sunday Meet up at Walmart area of 50, or the Show and shine on June 4th in Fauquier?

Safe Travels my friend! Man Colorado would be awesome, never been but the views are freaking unbelievable!

Wonder if you could show up just for the second day and put the preventative coating on? Keep it rust free as long as possible!

Yep, this weekend. Pre-registration its closed, but you can register day-of if you want to "be judged". I'm signed up and going for sure.

I think I was talking about the roads east of Richmond, since that'll be closer to me once I get moved. No more time before the move for sure. Most of the days between now and the 16th of June are spoken for. This weekend will be my last "get away" and the rest will be focussed on the move.

At least we have a few more years in the state to bump into you guys. It would be nice to meet up sometime and introduce my MUCH better half.

Maybe I'll see you this weekend!

I'd be down if it's easy enough for a stock '14 Sahara. The most I've done since moving here is 2nd mountain trail in GWNF.

Welcome new jeepers. I'm in Sterling.

Just came back from awesome 9 day wheeling trip in TN and KY. I'm looking forward to hitting the trails locally when Chaos Offroad Park opens for the season in May. It's a friendly 'new to wheeling' place.

Are there any other local off road parks in Nova that you'd recommend?

The Big Dogs events at the Cove are good. The Cove isn't an off-road park, per se but the owners allow the Big Dogs promoter to have wheeling events throughout the year.

Outside of Big Dogs and Chaos you'd need to go up to Rausch Creek in PA. Rausch is the mid-Atlantic wheeling mecca. There's another smaller park further into WV that I've heard good things about but I've never been.

I try to mix it up between technical wheeling at the parks and exploring maintained forest roads in the National Forests. They're quite interesting. I have some other posts on this forum about them.

Representing Annandale here. Anyone know of any stock-friendly trails in the area? The only ones I've heard of are in GW National Forest and that feels a lot like commitment.

Aside from the Big Dogs @ the Cove and Chaos Offroad Park (both out past Winchester) the GWNF is your best option. With the exception of Flagpole and maybe one or two other roads there's nothing that you can't handle stock. The challenge of exploring the GWNF is that help is not nearby if you run into problems (slide off the road or get stuck on mudhole) so you either have another vehicle with you or be able to recover yourself. If you haven't done Peters Mill go do that first. Check out this thread.

BTW, Chaos has one more event coming up this month. Check them out. You can jump on one of their trail rides with an experienced guide. They sort by ability group and even teach a quick 101 class.
