Blackhorse Gap--Bedford side

Dirt route from Blue Ridge Pkwy to Blackhorse Gap Rd, Blue Ridge, Bedford County, Virginia

"Steep dirt track with some challenging obstacles and washouts. Makes for a rowdy descent on a rigid bike or a quadbuster of a climb. Suspension would definitely smooth out the road or at least 40mm+ tires. Commonly used as the fire road climb up to Dody Ridge. "

Salt Pond Rd

Gravel route from Blue Ridge Dr to Salt Pond Rd, Blue Ridge, Botetourt County, Virginia

"Starts as gravel but then about halfway through there's a split in the road and you bear right onto a dirt track to climb up to the parkway. Connected to Salt Pond via Blue Ridge Dr. because where the road is shown as connecting at 460 it's very unambiguously gated off by Boxley. "
