Mountain Biking The Trough

*****   Add a review
#111 of 300 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#4,028 in the world

Fast descent off the top of the mountain that will leave you wishing for more when you drop out at the bottom. Trail ends up on Timberview Road on the opposite side of the mountain from the Bennett Springs Trailhead, so just be aware.

The Trough is also home to an optional freeride section, housing most of the freeride features at Carvin's. Featuring berms, jumps, and drops, of various sizes, The Trough is proof that Carvin's isn't just a one-trick pony. Rather, it caters to all different types of riders!
