Description

This easternmost sector of the Iron Mountain Trail runs east-west along ridges and valleys northwest of the town of Fries, VA. While it is not as popular as the western sectors of the IMT, this section can be linked up with dozens of other bike-legal routes, horse trails, Forest Service multi-use trails, gravel roads, and rural asphalt roads to make some nice endurance length loops.

It is highly recommended to pick up a copy of National Geographic's Trails Illustrated Topographic Map of Mount Rogers Nation Recreation Area. This map will help you find trail connections and prevent getting lost. You can also download the MTB Project mobile app to help stay oriented.
