Overview

Description

Winding Stair Gap Road is a fun descent, for a forest road. There's not many places in the area where you can enjoy nearly four miles of uninterrupted descending. Seriously, once you leave Blue Ridge Road FS-42, you probably don't have to pedal for the next three miles.

You can go as fast as your courage allows! Do watch your speed in the corners though as you'll encounter the odd vehicle coming up the road. And the area is used for US Army Ranger training, so if you happen upon a practice ambush, just stop and the guys with M-16's will tell you when you can proceed.

And if you like climbing, it can of course be ridden from south to north.

These roads are great for riding if the Bull Mountain trails are too wet or if it's freeze-thaw season. Wear orange if it's hunting season.
