Mountain Bike Heaven Professional Review and Guide

"This ride's general location is 12 miles south of Wytheville. Scenery includes great views of neighboring peaks and ridges. This loop utilizes single-track, double-track, and Forest Service roads that are part of the Highlands Horse Trail. Except for rank novices, most mountain bikers can handle the mileage and terrain of this trail. Ride the trail during the week when you can have the area to yourself.

The 2.5-mile climb on double-track and single-track will be the most difficult part. Don't be reluctant to stop and admire the outstanding views of neighboring peaks and ridges. The 3-mile double-track descent will leave you grinning for weeks. Advanced cyclists will want to add the 1.5-mile (3 miles total) single-track out-and-back Henley Hollow Trail and then follow the Iron Mountain option, which will create a more challenging and somewhat longer 11-mile loop."
