Overview

Lots of nice singletrack with four climbs and four downhills. A bit of road to give a view of Lake Blue Ridge. A good workout for the legs and the arms.

Need To Know

The trail is fairly easy to follow. The turn from the Green Mtn Trail down to Lake Blue Ridge / Shady Falls is easy to miss thought. See note on the map.

Description

Start from Shady Falls and take the Long Branch Connector. This is the first climb to top of Green Mountain and the longest and steepest. The descent on Upper Green Mtn is slightly technical (for an gentler down, take the Lower Green Mtn which is used on the return). Cross Aska Rd to the parking lot at Deep Gap and enjoy the climb / descent / climb of Flat Creek. The climb is long and steady forest service type of trail. The descent has a rock garden or two. Cross Aska again bearing slightly to the right for the Lower Green Mtn section back up. From the top it's a fast, long downhill to Lake Blue Ridge.

Drove all the way up to Blue Ridge and never found the trail. The address did not get us to the trail. Not in my Garmin in my truck, not in my Garmin I use on my bike, and not with Google Maps. Not sure I can trust this site. Mar 29, 2015
