The ride began up an unforgiving paved climb to the famed Reddish Knob. As the second-highest peak in Augusta County, Reddish Knob measures in at nearly 4,400 feet above sea level, and the climb to the summit (albeit along a paved road to the top) is relentless. But views this peak offers are nothing short of spectacular. Locals claim that on the clearest days it's possible to see into five states. This 360-degree view from the top of Reddish Knob is certainly one of Virginia's greatest treasures. Trail Surface: Mountainous singletrack, gravel forest roads, and pavement.
