I could be up for that so long as we start early before the 4-wheelers. If you need a place to stay let me know.

George Washington National Forest:
South Pedlar ATV Trail System
Good for young or beginning riders
Contact for trail maps & info :
Glenwood/Pedlar Ranger District
PO Box 10
Natural Bidge Station, VA 24579
(540) 291-2189



IMO, not worth it. 8 hours of driving to ride 30 miles of trails. Drive to ride sucks.

If you guys are in that area, give Dave colaw a call, he can show you some of the best trails in the area, as long as your bike is dual sported(or not). I had a blast riding with him. Xsquiggy can get in contact with him on madrider.com.

You know I would go. But I don't feel like driving 8 hours, to ride 2 hours. That place is really good for people on bicycls, mostly flat and unchallenging. They dont call it a atv trail system for nothing.

Be sure to take plenty of pics from peddlers gap. Ill do the same from tower city.

I think you would like riding Greenridge in MD, and savage water state park. Its the same kind of shtick.

Here is the I have plotted a route and scouted 2/3rds of it out...previously rode the rest of the route. It is a mix of 45% back country roads/45% gravel and 10% hardcore dirt/rock garden. Estimate about 170-180 miles total. Should take about 5-6 hours. The route starts at my place. You interested in riding this on Saturday? I will be on my DR400 because of the rock garden section (Peters Mill). It is a very scenic route over several mountain ranges and along rivers.

Keith - you did get my VM, yes ???

I am feeling crappy. Fevery, achy, and coughing. No big adventure ride for me. If I feel tip top Friday evening, I'll phone you again to see what your plans are.

I do want to do the route you scouted, ASAP.

Sorry to waffle...

Laurel Maryland. You can take your gs there. I have seen pickup trucks, hummers riding around on the trails. The big open areas are fun even on big bikes, I took my tiger there.

I think we might meet there around 8am on sunday.

Not sure if I am going out this weekend. Besides, rotorcup hasn't healed from the last trip to Peddler's.
