Its a spot called Shoe Creek. Some of you may have heard of it. Its about 2 hours up Route 29 once you get into VA. Its a green trail but there are some obstacles you can tackle. I've had some friends from the Blue room run it about 3 years ago and it was fun. Everyone normally goes to the top of the mountain in a couple hours, stops for lunch and will go back down again.

Anyone interested? The date will be 7-28-12

Hmm. How do we search on the coordinates? Tried plugging into Google Maps but it doesn't recognize.

Is this the trail in the GW National Park?

I found some rough directions on the blue room

Turn off of route 29 to hwy 151, in 3 miles turn left on Firehouse road,
7 miles left on Lowesville road, 2 miles bear left staying on
lowesville road, less then a mile turn right on woodson road, 3 miles
left on perkins mill road, 1 mile bear left staying on perkins mill
road, 2 miles bear right staying on perkins mill road, less then mile
arrive at trail entrance.
Thats the directions from my gps to get there although i think it
skipped a small dirt road that turns off of perkins mill road at the end
of that.

Shoe Creek is a very moderate trail......the trail is a simple forest rd with difficult bypasses but be aware that the off trail stuff is trespassing and if a ranger see's you on it he will write you a ticket.

The camping is great and the trail is tame.

Got a local Rubicon to join, and they are bringing their friend with a modded black diamond FJ. Looks like this might be a nice turnout Smile

I'm a definite maybe. Gas money is the only real issue for me, but I've been told that if I want to go it'll be taken care of. Smile
