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.
