Whether you're looking to shop for a new car and considering a Jeep, or you just picked up your dream ride from the Jeep dealership lot, you should know the off-road capability of a Jeep opens up a ton of adventures. If you're planning on putting your new Jeep to the test, then here is your essential Jeep adventure bucket list, starting local in Virginia and then taking it national.

Best Jeep Off-Roading In Virginia

  1. The Old Dominion Jeep Fest

    If vendors, food, and contests with cash prizes sound like your thing, then join the crowd at this central VA Jeep festival.

  2. Big Dogs Spring Fling

    If you're an avid animal lover who enjoys a little mud, then you'll go nuts for this event hosted by one of the biggest four-wheeling groups in Virginia. Proceeds from this three-day trail riding event go to humane societies, rescues, and the ASPCA. Big Dogs hosts a bunch of other four-wheeling events throughout the year in VA too, FYI.

  3. Wheelin' for Hope

    Not only is this Nelson County event a weekend filled with 47 miles of trails, raffles, and food, it also benefits the American Cancer Society.

Across the U.S.

  1. Jeep Jamboree

    Jeep Jamborees have a long history in the off-roading community and attract a lot of attendees, so they're a great way to be part of a passionate and fun community. These events are perfect for meeting other off-roading fans. They take place across the U.S. and typically feature lots of trail rides and communal meals, although the itinerary varies depending on the location.

  2. Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival

    Celebrating its seventh year in 2018, this Jeep festival takes place in Butler, PA -- the birthplace of the Jeep. It's basically a huge carnival that brings in roadtrippers from all across the United States.

  3. The Mojave Desert

    What better way to experience the vast beauty of the Mojave than to go wheeling along its rocky trails and catching the nice breeze? If desert off-roading appeals to you, you can't beat the Mojave.

  4. Broken Arrow Trail

    Highly recommended by experienced four-wheelers, the Broken Arrow Trail in Sedona, Arizona passes through beautiful Coconino National Forest. The trip also gives breath-taking views of Sedona's unique red desert landscape.

These are only a few of the fun events and beautiful off-road trails open to owners of four-wheeler vehicles and Jeeps. Remember to start small if you're new to the world of off-roading, lest you risk some damage to yourself or your ride. Over 316 million repair orders were written out by dealerships in 2017; don't be one of the millions that will be written this year!
