All the while, you’ll be presented with fresh and inspiring views, from mountain streams lush with spring greenery, to beautiful vistas. You never know what awaits around the next turn. This ride has a total elevation gain of 3203 feet.

Or how about the Rockfish Valley Crabtree Falls Loop? This 76-mile route starts with riding along the ridge overlooking the Shenandoah Valley to your left, and the Rockfish Valley to your right.
