Woods Mill - Nellysford

Distance:  25 miles

Climbing:  120 feet per mile

 

Description:  This ride is made up of two very different out-and-backs, each starting from the parking area.  The first heads north toward Nellysford with 6 large rollers in each direction.  Look for the house with the fence made of 30-40 bicycles at the top of one hill.  After returning to the starting point, the second leg heads southwest for a gradual, steady climb along several streams.  There are two options for the last 2 miles, one a bit steeper than the other.  You are of course welcome to do both.
