Review: Fun place to ride. The lake loop is nice and not too hard. Across the street has some nice climbs and some nice riding. Loved riding here when I lived there.

Review: Great trail around the lake. My wife and I enjoyed this trail and the views. I branched off and there are some great climbs and downhill sections that come back to the main loop. We rode in February and the conditions were great.

Review: Molly's Knob Trail. It is about 2.5 mi to the top. Up hill the whole way. Its not too steep, a better rider than me could do it. I walked a lot! The trail is well maintained, wide with no ruts, rocks, or roots to speak of. The surface is mostly tiny loose shale. It is rated expert but i think that is high. I would say intermediate. I couldnt see the lake from the top but it didnt take away from the awesome view. Pedaled twice on the way back down to the car. Awesome fast as you want to go down hill.

Review: Some of this trail,maybe 20% is doubletrack .taking that in consideration,the doubletrack is really very good and semi technical.The singletrack sections are very good on the rt. side of the lake and the climb to Mollies Knob is brutal.You are rewarded with a great view.On the left side of the lake there are 4-5 miles of new trail.These are some fantastic built trails some some good climbs and great downhills.Great views from the top. I would suggest riding all trails in the CW direction.

Review: Rode the Lake Loop in January, so there was 1-2" of snow on most of trail. The trail is awesome, nice flow with both up and downs. I will definitely add this to my list of favorite trails to ride.

Review: The single track section is pretty good,A tough climb to the top with a great view.and a few short climbs with tight singletrack.The double track is better than I expected with some nice climbs.I measured a little over 12 miles.The campground is one of the best in Virginia,behind Douthat.
