Shoe Creek Trail and Big Levels/Bald Mountain. This is closer to Stuarts Draft VA and is further south in the George Washington NF. Camping here would be in a privately owned campground. Only certain of these two trails. Both are open at each end and can also be run in reverse direction.

Shoe Creek runs alongside and crosses Shoe Creek. It crosses the Appalachian Trail and ends near Crabtree Falls. To see the falls is a hike of about a mile. Very pretty scenery. Some challenge for a stock vehicle but doable. This trail ends on a paved road which can be used to access the second trail.
Big Levels/Bald Mountain. A bit more challenging but still doable in a stock vehicle. More rocks and climbs on this one. Ends at Blue Ridge Parkway adjacent to a wilderness area.
There may be other trails that are worth riding in the area but haven't scouted them out yet.
