Barton Gap Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is 15 miles south of Marion. Scenery includes roadside streams lined with towering hemlocks and hardwoods. This loop is relatively short but still quite challenging. Technical challenges are few, but you'll find yourself wishing you'd packed some oxygen while climbing steadily along a forest road and then a rough woods road.

Fortunately, there are still downhills in this densely wooded section of Mount Rogers National Recreation Area to make you forget the exertion by the time you finish at Hurricane Creek Campground. Riders should have at least an average degree of fitness. Those looking for a longer ride can combine Barton Gap and Rowlands Creek Falls Circuit to create an immense physical challenge."
