Trail shared by Geoff Rundlett

Virginia's premiere handicap accessible mountain bike trail navigable by hand cycles and recumbents.

Features -none-

Description

This is a great attraction for all on a relatively level area of the park, rollers, banks, and optional features have been built into an extra-wide tread. There is a skinny buried at grade for those still learning to hold their line, and a couple optional ones for two-wheelers that are trying to master it.

The trail links optionally with Gateway 2, across the Forest Road. Either segment, or both of them combined, can be repeated again and again for as much fun as you can take.
