Pandapas Pond Loop Professional Reviews and Guides
"This is an excellent adventure for hikers of all ages. Circle wildlife-rich Pandapas Pond, viewing the 8-acre impoundment and the surrounding environment. Stay with the all-access path around the wetland and pond, or make a miniloop through the rhododendron using the Lady Slipper and Larkspur Trails. Visit a pollinator garden and wildlife blind as an added bonus."
--Johnny Molloy , Five-Star Trails: Roanoke and the New River Valley, Virginia (Menasha Ridge Press).
"This is a great ride in the Jefferson National Forest right outside Blacksburg Virginia. No matter what you call it, Pandapas Pond, Brush Mountain, Gap Mountain, or Poverty Creek, there is definitely something to satisfy your mountain biking needs along the trails within this section of the Jefferson National Forest, just north of Blacksburg, VA. Poverty Creek has been a popular destination for Blacksburg mountain bikers for a long time. Its proximity to the town and Virginia Tech’s campus has made it a venerable haven for off-road cycling."
