This trail has some burly moves and great views along a razors-edge singletrack.

Description

The Buzzard Rock trail runs along the northern-most tip of the eastern Massanutten ridge. The trail begins at a small parking lot off SR 619, just south of the fish hatchery. Note that this is a popular trail for hikers; the small lot often fills by mid-day on summer weekends.

From the parking lot, the trail climbs gradually upwards to the northern-most point, then turns south again more steeply up along the center of the ridge. Along the ridge, the trail becomes very narrow and rocky, with many off-camber and difficult sections.

The ridge is primarily uphill heading south, finally leveling out near the summit, before a slight descent to the intersection with the Massanutten Trail.

Most people who ride Buzzard Rock do so from the south end after climbing up Shawl Gap. In this direction, most of the rough rock sections are rideable downhill.
