Trail shared by Kyle Lawrence

Rugged, steep, and rocky jeep road that is never gated and always open.

Features Commonly Bikepacked

The "Jeep" road is open to vehicles year round but only high clearance vehicles will survive this road.

Description

This is a very steep and rugged Jeep road that's one of the more challenging stretches of road for OHV driving and can be tricky on a bike with some very steep pitches and loose rock. There are a number of great camp spots along the way with views looking east back towards the Shenandoah Valley.

The north end of the road is hard to miss from the top of Dundore Mountain near Maple Springs. Look for a road that heads south away from the private property on top of the mountain (make sure to adhere to all posted private property signs). This road is entirely legal and on National Forest property.

The south end of the road isn't hard too miss as it's the only road connection from Meadow Knob.
