Just West of Beartree Gap Campground, off of a old fire road can be found one of the best kept secrets of mtn. biking in Southwest Virginia. With miles of awsome rolling singletrack, high speed open doubletrack, agonizing climbs,technical rock gardens, and white-knuckle gravel decents, this network of old logging and mining roads and foot trails has something for everyone. Many trails can be accessed from FR(fire road) 90 and can be combined to form various loops, lolliepops, or out & backs for quick after work rides or epic 8 hour days. The trails are never crowded and are well marked. Trail maps can be obtained from local bike shops, and you might meet a local rider who can give you some helpful info.
