JULY 19-20 Meadow Knob/Flagpole WHEELING meet

Hello everyone! I would like to get another meet to flagpole/meadow knob again and I have found a pretty challenging trail to take. I have ran 4 different trails and this one is the money! I would like to get together with everyone and see all the work everyone has been doing to their trucks since the last meet. Looking foward to this one and no snow this time for sure...

There will be 2 convoys for 2 differnet trails

CB CHANNEL WILL BE 25

1st convoy

The first convoy will meet at the sheets off of exit 247B in the morning july 20th around 9:30. This is the last gas station before you hit the trail so gas up and the plan is to leave by 10. The first convoy will do a challenging 8 mile trail with a few obstacles in the path of the trail. 4x4 only for this trail. This trail has some challenging uphill rock obstacles and the trail is about as narrow as shoe creek so some limb rubbing may occur. Once we are done wheeling we can camp in a nice little camping spot I found when I was up there that isnt on top of the mountain

Address for the sheetz we will be meeting at
798 E Market St
Harrisonburg

Directions for 1st convoy to the trail


Take Exit 247B on 81 (harrisonburg/rt 33)..
Take Rt33 west....9.27 miles to Clover Hill Rd
Left on Clover Hill Rd
2 miles....Right on Union Springs Rd
1.30 miles...Left @ Stop Sign (still on union springs rd)
.66 miles....Right @ Stop Sign at bottom of the hill (still on Union springs rd)
Road turns to gravel and you will begin the Meadow Knob/Flagpole Knob run....
4.0 miles Airdown/Disconnect spot, shale hill on the left (OFF LIMITS!!!)
3.9 miles Right turn
1.2 miles Left turn by the tree
.1 miles Mud Flats
.3 miles Stair Steps (trail splits...rocky steps on left, muddy easy trail on right, meets up at bottom of the hill)
.3 miles Hill Climb (rocks to climb over at the top, getting similar to stair steps)
1.6 miles Meadow Knob
1.8 miles Flagpole



2nd convoy ( for those interested in some lighter wheeling)

The second convoy will meet at 257 grocery in dayton, Va. This is also a gas station and the only stop for gas on the trip so gas up if you are running low. The plan is to meet on July 20th at 10:30 and leave by 11 once everyone has arrived. Everyone then will head up to Flagpole knob and have some fun on the trails along the way. (Prerunner friendly as long as no rain) The trail to flagpole knob is about 3 miles once you get to the fire road. This is for some beginner/ mild off roading and many obstacles are off course along the way. Everyone will meet up at flagpole knob and set up for camp and hang out that night. Then wake up the next morning and do some more off roading or head home.

Address for first convoy ( The shorter trail is 3.4 miles to flagpole)
6939 Briery Branch Rd,
Dayton, VA 22821

I'll say maybe to going on the easy trails... Dont know if I want to beat up my daily driver too much before I have another vehicle. If I go, I'll be wanting to camp. Another factor, are there any sketchy cliffs out at the easy trails? As we all know, I kinda have a bad experience with cliffs... lol. And last thing, I don't think you meant to put May 11th under the 2nd convoy.

Very interested in attending. Would be coming from Ohio. Shorter travel to this destination than it was to Rausch Creek in PA. Light trails for my Mid-Traveled 5 lug.

There are sketchy cliffs but nothing a 2wd cant handle on the shorter trail. Just steep drop offs but there will be no snow so you will be fine man

How difficult would the first convoy be? Like doable with 33's and 4x4 with open diffs. Or like fill armor, locked front and rear kinda stuff.

you will be fine with 33s and open diffs no problem, depending on which line you take through the 1st convoy skids would be good to have but rubbage can be avoided with the right line. Some of the obstacles off the course will deffinately need armour

I have seen many prerunners take that way with no issue and the cliffs are no big deal. Just a steep drop off to look down

No problem at all but stay on the trail because there are some obstacles you can get stuck in

You will not beat up your daily driver on the trail you are taking, its very open and easy to do, some big ruts and obstacles along the way but they can be avoided
