Mountain Lake (Blacksburg) – 15 miles of beginner to advance single track (advanced trails; Bear Cliffs and Moonstomper have some crazy roots and rocks. One tough place to ride without dabbing). This area hosts the Dirty Dawg mtn. bike race. The trails here are rocky single and double track. The scenery, Hotel, and other lake properties are amazing.
Park Map – The Nature’s conservancy has great new maps of the property that can be purchased at their office, and the rental building as you enter the Hotel parking lot. You will need to pay a $3 fee for trail access and parking for the day.
