    I was just going off of my map overlay when I googled it because I've never heard of it either.

    Potts is the blue trail and from what I've been told a JKU needs at least 35s.

    I've also been told that there are a lot of trails out that way but the locals keep them under wraps to prevent them from being shut down.

    Just wish it wasn't 5 fucking hours away.

    Ya that might be it, I've been too busy to look closer yet, but this is what I was going off earlier...

    Link wouldn't work through my phone but looking into a little more it looks like Bald mountain is another name for Big levels. If it is the same it's a fun trail.

    Just make sure you follow the Orange diamond shaped trail markers. They mark the main trail. The yellow diamond markers are camping off shoots that lead to dead ends.

    Where are you staying? There is a bald mtn just down from the potts trail. There is the pines campground between the two potts trail heads, its free primitive camping but if you want to camp I suggest the field on top of potts mtn. You cant miss it the trail runs right through it. We stayed up there a couple weekends ago. You can get a rig through potts on 33's with traction adders but be sure to have rocker protection.

    A nice but not so challenging ride is mountain lake just outside of Pembroke va and white rocks campground Is up that way.

    There is a rather rough and technical but very very short trail on rt 100 just outside of narrows va called copperhead.

    Also there is hogback ridge / kimberling creek outside of rocky gap va.

    You may look up new river valley jeep club on facebook and see if they have anything going on that you could join.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
