Walker Mountain

Walker Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is 25 miles west of Staunton. Scenery includes great views of neighboring peaks as you reach the top of Walker Mountain. This loop combines a lot of forest road through a cool, hemlock-shaded gorge adjacent to Clayton Mill Creek with a 1.2-mile stretch of single-track.

You will grow to love the area for its beauty, solitude, and proximity to some great out-of-the-way places, like Goshen Pass and Williamsville. The initial six-mile climb on hard-packed forest road is not easy, but for a rider with a moderate amount of stamina it makes a challenging introduction to the kinds of lengthy ascents you're likely to find in Virginia's national forests."
