Muddy Squirrel

Are you looking for new areas to explore? While there are many great trails to ride in the Roanoke Valley, we think that Botetourt County, especially the Buchanan/Arcadia area, is especially loaded with its own unique style of riding. While the notion of "if you aren't hiking, you aren't riding" applies in some cases, our national forest is filled with flowing single track and fantastic downhills -- with some stiff climbs to keep you honest. After spending time away from the crowds, you'll know why we want you #MountainbikeBuchanan and #BicycleBotetourt.

Over the next year or so, we hope to compile a list of our favorite loops, with all the information you'll need to have your own adventure -- where to park, what to expect, mapping resources, difficulty level, and multiple ride options. Stay tuned.
