Mountain Biking Bear Bottom Loop

****   Add a review
#43 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#1,491 in the world

There are a number of trails the network of trails I took began with the Bear Bottom Loop. That loop is clearly marked with blue tags. You can add some length to this train by taking the Big Oak Loop. All of the trails circle back. The map you get at the gate is pretty good.

These trails were alot of fun with some great ups and downs. There are some nice climbs and good curves. I would describe this as a intermediate ride. The only downside is that this is a multi-use trail and on the weekends there are normally horses and what horses leave.

Getting there
This place is about an hour from Washington DC. This park is also near Shenandoah National Park which has some good hikes.

From Front Royal Virginia take 340 South for eight miles. There will be a large sign on the right for Shenandoah State Park. At the gate to the park you can get a map of all the trails in the park. Also it is $3 per car.
