This ride's general location is on the Virginia-Kentucky border 67 miles northwest of Abingdon, Virginia. Scenery includes dense woods along the trail, and the "Grand Canyon of the South", a canyon 5 miles long with 1,600-foot, sheer rock walls. The trail is a fun single-track for those who like ups and downs to make it interesting, but not too many technical challenges. This is a very good beginners single-track because it addresses handling skills and not aerobic or physical endurance; it's suitable for older children ready for some fairly tame single-track.

There are now about 7 miles of mountain bike trails. Lots of very narrow tight singletrack with some tough, but short climbs. A few sections quite technical, but most of the riding is mountain biking at its best. It may take some exploring as some trails are not signed yet, but are marked by blazes on the trees. You can spend a pleasant afternoon exploring these trails and riding a variety of loops. Recommended for experienced riders, although the main (green) trail could be ridden by most anyone. Side loops are more technical.

The park has added an extension and there is now close to five miles of mountain bike trails. This is a really pleasant ride through the woods, with a few technically difficult sections. The guide is out of date. The bike shop and rentals are no longer available.
