Mountain Biking Snake Root

*****   Add a review
#159 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#5,834 in the world

One of the steeper, gnarly trails out here, Snake Root is a 2.1 mile descent off of the high point and the junction with the Horse Nettle and Gateway trails, back down to the Poverty Creek trail.

    This trail has plenty of high speeds and high berms in the lower section to get your speed up. Watch out for the switchbacks up top though, they have some very high a difficult roots to navigate
