Description

This is the actual beginning of the Glenwood Horse Trail. Part of this section of the Glenwood Horse Trail is known locally as the Dody Ridge Trail. It starts off of Quarry Rd. The most popular way to ride this trail is to actually start at the Great Valley Overlook on the Blue Ridge Pkwy, and across the road from the overlook is a short but punchy climb. Once at the top, it drops down a steep chute littered with rocks. Take the first sharp left followed by a ~3 ft drop (avoidable to the right), and the trail turns into a long ridge rock garden. Once out of the rocks, it opens up into a fast doubletrack with more loose rocks. It ends at the Black Horse Gap Rd.
