Other route from State Rte 611 to Greyledge Rd, Buchanan, Botetourt County, Virginia

"Crisscrossing and sometimes in the Purgatory Creek dry bed this stretch has no marked entrance from the north and feeds into the back of a small suburb to the south. Easy to miss if not watching the map. Amazing for off-roading trips or just a country drive. There are a few homes tucked in around the road. I would not recommend a low car however I did it in a Nissan Maxima and was fine. Do not get caught here in inclement weather or flash flood risks including snow melt or runoff. The creek bed is mostly dry. Best off the grid road in VA."

Pike/Chair Rock/Boblett's Gap

Dirt route from Pike Rd to Mountain Valley Rd, Buchanan, Botetourt County, Virginia

"Starts off as well maintained gravel on the Bedford side and turns to dirt track near the top. Crosses under the parkway and descends Chair Rock road to Boblett's gap road on the Botetourt side. Both sides can get rough but are perfectly suitable for rigid bikes with some decent volume tires and an eye for responsible lines. "
