As the weather gets nicer and nicer, we thought we would give our residents in our apartments in Lynchburg, VA some ideas on where they can ride.
Black Water Creek - Once you are on the main part of the trail, it is a fairly fun, relaxing ride with 2 great climbs, one on the upper Freer trail, the other can’t be missed. Great scenery.
Liberty Mountain - This trail system is a true diamond in the rough! With somewhere between 50 and 75 miles of trails, you could ride here for days without riding the same trail twice! There's a variety of difficulty levels, but most of the trails feature short, steep, rather techy climbs to the tops of a ridge and then a steep descent on the other side, complete with plenty of technical obstacles, berms, jumps, and massive wooden features. Be sure to bring an aggressive bike with some suspension, but if you can't you can ride here anyway, most of the features can be bypassed.
Peaks View Park - These are some great trails! Lots of short, steep up and downs, with enough technical demands to keep your attention . . . plenty of lovable, tight, twisty, rhythmic singletrack. Most of the trails are intermediate, but there are a couple of expert trails too. The trails are well-marked and well taken care of. From the parking lot, cross the wood bridge over the creek and go right. You'll cruise along the creek and past a basketball court some softball and soccer fields along the paved bike path. There are three trail heads. To get a feel for everything this great network has to offer, go on past the first two all the way to trail head III. Take the trail to the right (Mimosa) which will take you to the back corner of the network. From there, take Lower Piney to Cyclone. Turn left toward trail head II, then right to take on Roller Coaster. It is entirely appropriate to whoop it up on this trail! There are a lot more trails than these out there though.
