A New Wheeling Experience

Finally after five years of wheeling, I made it to Gore, Virginia to take my Jeep off-roading. I've heard about the place many times, but never found my way there for several reasons.

I always heard they wheeled hard and breakage was not an issue. I also heard the trails were mainly for big rock crawlers. Now I can put those fears to rest. The Cove Campground outside of Gore, Virginia is a great place to wheel. Trails of all levels from one to ten. 

The scenery is beautiful and the 
trails are amazing and super fun.

I arrived Friday and set up camp. I was spending the weekend with Off Camber Crawlers during a Big Dogs Off Road event. Off Camber Crawlers, OCC, are a family off road group I am trying to become a member with. 

Like all the other Jeepers I come across
 OCC is awesome and so welcoming. 

I wheeled the level 5 trails just to get my feet wet to see what the trails were like. There were some intense moments on some difficult obstacles, but I powered through. I think I would be able to wheel 6's and 7's.  

I also took my Jeep on it's first night wheeling trip and tested out my Lux Lighting Systems Lights. 

I have posted several videos of the trails I wheeled, however like any Jeeper knows the video doesn't do the trail justice. The level of difficulty never gets an accurate account on the video. 

I plan on heading to The Cove Campground again, hopefully in a couple of weeks. 


  1. Jeep Momma, great write up on The Cove. My guide is a member of OCC and gave me info on what is needed to join. We already met one requirement with our attending Spring Fling. My next requirement is to attend a club meeting. The next one is at 2 Silo’s Brewery in August. I WILL be there! I have caught up on most of your videos, have enjoyed them all. Keep them coming! ��

  2. Awesome write up. The Cove is a great place and having new people there is what makes it fun. I’ve been wheeling there since the 90s and probably Wheel as hard as any of them but love the fact there are new folks coming in also. If you ever need anything. Just ask for Bigelow.
