TransVirginia Gravel – Van Supported (7-days)
Explore Virginia’s best backcountry riding on unpaved and touring routes. From the beautiful countryside of the Shenandoah Valley to Virginia’s loftiest vistas, the TransVirginia Route takes the road less traveled. The backroads, remote national forests, and two of Virginia’s most popular rail trails offer a variety of challenging climbs with diverse landscapes and communities and fascinating natural and historical sites.
You will be on gravel right away along cascading mountain streams lined with blooming rhododendrons. There is a climb up to Mountain Lake where you can enjoy the mountaintop view from Wind Rock Overlook or visit the Mountain Lake Lodge, where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed, then go back into the valley for a leisurely ride along the banks of the New River on the famous New River Trail. Then jump back into the mountains one more time before hitting a bucket list rail trial, the Virginia Creeper Trail, inducted to the Rail Trail Hall of Fame in 2014.
An adventure this beautiful, diverse, and challenging can only be described as Epic. Discover the path less traveled in Virginia’s amazing backcountry and make some memories on this amazing adventure.
