A mountain bike complex in Virginia with 10 miles of singletrack.

Bob Norris

Overview

A great new mountain biking complex in Southwest Virginia.
Family Friendly: There are beginner trails as well as areas along the creek to stop and enjoy nature.

Description

Since 2013, landowner Bob Norris has been collaborating with other trail builders and mountain biking enthusiasts in Southwest Virginia to develop a trail system off of Horsepasture Price Road in Henry County, VA. This trail system is located on over 150 acres of private land with negotiations with other large tract joining land owners to develop one of the largest mountain biking and hiking facilities in the area.

Close to 10 miles of hand and machine constructed singletrack trails are almost complete, with plans for up to 15 miles based on a stacked-loop design. The five mile Central Loop is the core trail that all other optional trails are connected. Many of the trails border creeks and water while others meander through the woods or ridge-tops.

These trails were specifically designed to appeal to all skill levels, beginner to advanced. It remains a work-in-progress, with signage, maps, parking lot facilities, on site camping information boards and optional technical trail features like skinnys and rock gardens that are a fun challenge.

History & Background

This trail was started in 2013 and has about 10 miles so far.

Getting forecast...

Just rode this yesterday. Great trail. Runs near a creek, has great variety that never gets boring. One of the better trails I rode all year. Well marked and maintained. Nice ride, and the story of how the guy started this on his own property for health reasons and now opened it to the public is a testament of how mountain biking changed someone's life. 14 hours ago
