A forest road loop with gnarly climbs and incredible views. Head up on FS 28 past the 4H camp and the US Army Ranger training camp. Continue up Cooper Gap Rd / FS 80 to the top of Cooper Gap and the Canada Creek loop parking area (the Appalachian trail also crosses here). Make a left on FS 42 and ride on the ridge above 3,000 feet with great views on either side. Continue on FS 42 to Winding Stair Gap and go left on FS 77 and enjoy the 4 mile (steep) downhill back to your car. Not much traffic and great views.
