Description

Torry Ridge Trail is most often ridden as a descent from Bald Mountain off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The trailhead is well marked at the top of the forest road. Torry Ridge Trail intersects with Slacks Trail then Blue Loop Trail twice before the final descent to Torry Furnace. Big views offered along the length of the ridge.

This trail will challenge even the most experienced rider with plenty of terrain mixes. Rocky sections, steep sections, technical climbing, and behind the seat descending.

These trails in this area are the best thing available to those driving from Richmond. A junk bike wont make it up there. Take your trail tools and a pump, I don't recommend tube tires or weak brakes. Damn good full suspension helps a lot. These trails rock, wear your safety gear. Nov 14, 2016
