A 3.4 mile long out and back, singletrack trail that takes you from the Deep Gap trailhead parking lot to Lake Blue Ridge. Parts of the trail are a bit erroded and technical but the ride will leave a smile on your face. From Aska Rd, you have a choice to either take the path to the left or the path to the right. The left path was a little steeper and more erroded than the path to the right. They connect back up at the 1 mile mark and the trail then continues on towards the lake. After the intial climb you are in for a great downhill ride to the shores of Lake Blue Ridge or you can make a right onto the Long Branch connector trail at the 1.6 mile mark and try out the nearby Long Branch Loop Trail. At the lower end of the Green Mt trail you can turn around and ride back or continue straight onto FS 711 to make the ride a loop. If you choose the loop option, continue on FS 711 until it dead ends into Campbell Camp Circle. Make a left on Campbell Camp Circle and follow it about a quarter mile until it runs into Campbell Camp Rd. No matter which direction you go on Campbell Camp Rd, it runs into Aska Rd. Head south on Aska back your car at Deep Gap trail head parking lot. The loop route is approximately 7 miles.

    Fun trail to add with Stanley Gap and Flat Creek. Much smoother than the other trails in the area. Very few, if any, technical features. The descent down to the lake is awesome, but the flip side is a tough climb back out.

    Fun trail with some surprisingly steep sections. Most riders park at the upper parking lot which means a lot of climbing on the way back out but it's also possible to park near the lake and ride up and back down.

    Fun trail. According to my Mytracks app you climb about 300' in the first 1.4 miles, then it's about an 800' drop in the next 2 miles to Blue Ridge Lake. Nice view at the lake you could take a swim if you wanted to then take the same trail back to the parking lot (800' up and a 300' drop in the last mile or so to the parking lot).

    Excellent singletrack! I really wish there was a way to loop this without riding a ton of pavement.

    While this trail isn't nearly as aerobically challenging as the nearby Stanley Gap trail, it can be full of technical challenges. Depending on which route you choose at the start it can really bring the pain. Either way, the downhill to the lake is a reward well worth time.
