Lovingly crafted by a mountain biker trail manager, for mountain bikers. Makes the most of the acreage they have. Variety, a few tight turns and some fast sections. Unfortunately, people abused the pump track and the teeter-totter skills area, and now it's gone. Definitely recommend going out to the White Rock Hill, Slick Rock trails area. A nice touch are the little warning signs marking ground hog burrows. A really nice park for family picnics too. Take it slow around the parking area, where other trail users may abound. Light it up on the outer trails. This system hosts multiple events too, so it contributes to the mountain bike culture in Central VA. Fat Albert is fun too, with its log crossings. Would like more skinnies to add to the fun.
Close to Lynchburg and Roanoke, for something different.
