  • Whetstone Ridge, Virginia, USA


last minute sunday trip – whetstone ridge is a backcountry gem hidden not too far from us (~1hr). Steep (up and down), rocky, narrow, and remote, it is a very rewarding trail to ride. This is an advanced mountain biking trip. There can be areas without cell service if you need help.

the trail details: 20-25 miles, ~3000 feet of climbing. 12 miles of this are on single track
