“The RockStar TRAIL Route is a 270+ mile bikepacking route from Rocktown (Harrisonburg) to the Star City (Roanoke).”— Capt. Insane-O
- Most adventurers will leave their car in Roanoke and take the Roanoke Mountain Adventures (540.525.8295) shuttle service to the start of the ride in Harrisonburg. Some ultra-riders start in Roanoke, ride the adjacent RockStar GRAVEL route to Harrisonburg and then ride the RockStar Trail route back to Roanoke!
- Douthat State Park is the route midpoint and is a great overnight option.
From there, the route pieces together premier singletrack trails to create a phenomenal and challenging bikepacking experience unlike any other. The ride concludes at the iconic Texas Tavern in downtown Roanoke a whopping 270+ miles later!
