    I’m going to school at VT in southwest Virginia, and was wondering if there are any groups within a few hours of there who do off-road trips that me and a Jeep buddy could join in on.

    Kind of late to this thread, but Uwharrie National Forest in NC might work. It's about 3-hrs from Blacksburg.

    Vid for reference: https://youtu.be/FoTT6iDjfuo

    (At the end of the vid, they mention that they're from Blacksburg.)

    I know several forest service roads right around Blacksburg and the surrounding counties that should work if anyone is really interested.

    Uwharrie is a good time. Potts mountain is definitely doable bone stock, but prepare for pinstripes, the trail brush gets tight. I would recommend Uwharrie above the others due to the amount of trails and amount of camp grounds in the area. Also, even if you wheel there "alone" you don't have to be worried about not having someone to pull you out of a sticky situation as it is fairly popular (we all know wheeling alone is not recommended), although it might hurt your taco pride to get yanked out by a jeep. I'd be down assuming scheduling works out. There's also a dedicated URE thread in one of the regional forums.


    EDIT: I May have gotten Potts mixed up with Big Levels/Bald Mountain. Watching some videos I realized i wasnt thinking about the right trails.
