This ride's general location is 25 miles north of Wytheville. Scenery includes endless groves of dense rhododendron. Despite the name of this loop and the mountain it traverses, there's nothing flat about it. After six miles of difficult climbing on hard-packed FS road, you'll descend on five miles of the sweetest single-track throughout George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. This smooth section of horse trail weaves its way through endless groves of dense rhododendron towering over and shading the trail. The climb is a killer because of its pitch as well as its length; it's the biggest determinant of what class of rider should tackle this ride.
