This ride's general location is 20 miles north of Blacksburg. Scenery includes splendid panoramic views, especially from the top of Butt Mountain. This loop will take you across the tops of several mountains on terrain that is not flat but much flatter than you might expect. You'll soon understand Mountain Lake's claim, "We'll put you on top of the world." This loop offers little in the way of technical challenges and only moderate ups and downs on hard-packed and hard-surface roads, so the distance is the only factor determining what level of riders could comfortably handle this ride.
