Nice map. There is a 2 track from 60 directly north of Swamping Camp Rd. IT veers to the left from the AT. Won't claim to know where it exactly comes out but we went on it 2 years ago and I think it connected or crossed Wiggins springs.

It does come out onto Wiggins Springs. If I remember correctly, the Ranger who told me about the road called it Cow Camp road. Local name maybe? I can't convince Google to give me the coordinates but I am pretty sure it comes out just beyond (East) of the last house. The one with the big pond and lots of evergreens. Look for it connecting to Wiggings Sprins just beyond where those evergreen trees fizzle out. You can make out the road on satelite view. Google shows a good bit of it as a road from 60 so that end can be marked on this map. Shoe Creek can also be marked entirely as Google shows a road there. Good work btblueskies.

Maybe yall are talking about N Fork .. State Route 635?
The section from 60 North peters out after two water crossings and the FS closed it at that location. My Delorme Map has it connecting all the way up to Wiggings.. but it was close a while ago. I was talking to a hunter there on thanksgiving day and he said it was washed out quite bad in places.

Or maybe it comes out at Long Mountain Wayside?

Link to video of water crossing at that location.

No. We are talking about where your pink road meets 60 at the wayside. There is a road into the NF across from there. Thre is also a gravel rd that leaves the wayside that follows 60 before returning to 60 close to the N. Fork rd. Zoom in at the wayside (pink route & 60) and you can see the road. Google has it marked for about 1/4 to1/3 of the way to Wiggins Spring. That road should be closed right now too.

Musta been law-enforcement day over there. There were 6 or so Henrico Police cars in the lot when I arrived with approx. 8 uniforms inside.... followed by one of their forensic units (6 people) after they left.

Guy,
I noticed the first couple RTEs I attended you where there and a gaggle of cops at each one. One there was even a chopper over head, thats how i found that one. Makes me wonder if they are one step ahead of you.

Thanks for ordering the souvlaki for me as I requested. I also had souvlaki in Williamsburg, cause I actually had to work today. We frequent this place so much that the owner brought us out some free deserts.

Also way to show up those young punks by riding instead of woosing out like they did.

Although I haven't quite secured my kitchen pass there is still time to start a fight

If that doesn't work out something less time consuming and closer to home will have to do....I bet the training
grounds will be busy....
Michhub & Eddy-

I might be able to do a long ride Sunday. I'm riding Saturday with Nicole so it will be tame, but one of these days this weekend with this great weather. I want to head west and do some serious riding...out early back late...

Let me know what everyone is thinking or just keep me in the loop, cause I am up for a fast hard dirt ride!!!

We share a common bond: good food!

Happy to say my EOTech 512 is back online. Had a battery contact issue but found that Lone Star Products and Equipment sells replacement parts.

I would have totally been there today... but me and my bright ideas took down the dev database and I had lots of people giving me bad looks...... lots... so I ate cheetos in my cube.

In this instance... equate 'cube' with 'foxhole'. Nice day at work. At least I got the map started :)

The two track you're talking about does connect to Wiggins Springs Rd. Continuing on Wiggins Springs takes you to an intersection where if you turn lest (West) you're on Coffeytown Road. Turning right (East) is Alhambra Rd. If you go straight across the intersection, the road goes up to, and ends at a set of radio towers. If you follow Alhambra Road East, it intersects Perkins Mill Rd which ends at the bottom of the Shoe Creek Jeep Trail.

Looking at the larger Google maps, on page 2, just north of "nice road to old rag" there's a great road. It is Quaker Run Rd (zip is 22727) and goes past Rapidan Camps. It's a beautiful, remote area and there are also some great gravel roads in that area also. I'll try to see if I can attach GPX tracks, but my guess is you all could find and ride them before I get it all figured out. I hope it's not too muddy tomorrow for all who are riding.

Sorry for the break-in

I need some help and figured one of you fine inmates may have a connection that may be willing to help me out. I went to the bike show last weekend and on my way home (VB) the troopers were out in force on 95 and 295....see where this is going??? Well after almost getting rear ended on 95 i got on 295 where I soon was boxed in by cars and a flatbed truck next thing the car on the left decided to occupy my space and the only option I had was crack the throttle and wiggle in between the flatbed truck, trailer and the car just off my right shoulder....I just made it with my heart in my throat then hit the brakes to slow down....too late...trooper right there pulled me and said he clocked me at 102. I appear at Henrico County Court on Tuesday for an arraignment...it sucks!!! I was inches from being road pizza. Anyone know someone of the legal persuasion that you would recommend. I would kindly appreciate it. Please PM me with any ideas. Thanks

JC
