Off-Roading Areas Website - DC

Does anyone know a good site that aggregates places you can take your vehicle off road? I've found a couple but they're pretty outdated or specific to certain areas.

I'm new to the DC area (Northern VA side). Don't want to beat my truck up by any means but would love to get it a little dirty and enjoy the last few weeks of relative warmth over here.

I know there's a few places in West Virginia and Pennsylvania but I haven't been able to find much in the Virginia area. I grew up in GA and feel like there were off road paths you could take all over the place!

Check out Big Dogs Offroad for events at the Cove Campground in Gore, VA.

Novajeepers is a club in the area you could join.

I think there are trails at George Washington National Forest, but I've never been.

Oak Ridge is a spot down near Charlottesville that sometimes opens it land up for events, but they are maybe 1-2 a year.

Forest service roads are (generally) open to any on-highway vehicle that is properly licensed, plated and insured. Seasonal closures do happen, and some areas are open only to off-highway vehicles like dirt bikes and quads.
Flagpole knob is a good day trip. It's west of Harrisonburg VA. Plenty wide and obsticles are minor.
A good place for info:

I was stationed in Georgia for a while (long ago). If I recall correctly, what they called roads, I called off roading.

Having come from New York, our roads were at least as difficult to navigate ... but at least they were paved.
