Mountain Biking Beaverdam Park

***   Add a review
#122 of 291 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#4,606 in the world

There is a multiuse trail that can be accessed from the courthouse entrance that runs nine miles, some good ups and down. The Fary Mill Rd. entrance has several networks of trails. The Fary Mill end also gets alot more horse traffic and therefore is more muddy and also more manure to be dodged.

This is a great trail with some good twist and turns, good ups and downs and generally lots of fun. With all of the networks of trails it is more than nine miles, but from one end to the other that is what you are looking at.

    I've biked this completely through a couple times and did some marathon training. It's decent for the relative area and can be challenging if you're not in great shape. A lot of short lived downhills and uphills. There's a lot of technical terrain deeper into the trail. Definitely bring bug spray in the warmer months since it's by the water. A great trail if you're looking to get some hard mileage in.

    I agree with most of the other ratings but I rated it a little higher because this can be a very fast trail and with the roots it can be quite intense. Most novice riders would have to walk there bike that many of the hills. I used granny gear on a few uphills to conserve energy. if one is going slow it is pretty easy but since its corners are fairly wide you can maintain over seven miles an hour making it a lot of fun. like the other rater, my GPS came back with a much shorter distance than the trail was marked.

    Good ride for the area. My GPS said 6 miles after I did what I thought was the entire ride. Nothing to climb. No ttfs. No downhills worth mentioning. There isn't much else in the area however, so this ride is good for what it is. There was some good fishing in the lake however!

    Nice quiet trail. Very little traffic. Up and down rolling hills the whole way.
