Angler's Ridge Trail System - Trail, Danville, Virginia

DESCRIPTION

The Angler's Ridge Trail System is a new trail system which weaves it's way throughout the new "CyberPark" industrial park just southwest of the Danville Regional Airport. Using the old gravel farm roads as a backbone, IMBA-inspired singletrack has been constructed throughout the park. Over 6 miles of wooded singletrack with multiple creek crossings and log crossings await.

These trails were used to host Danville's first-ever MTB race held in September of 2003 as part of the Virginia Derailer Race Series. The race loop includes almost every trail including "Little Pisgah", "Slingshot", "Hot Tamale", "Screaming Eagle", and "Angler's Ridge Trail".

Thanks to the Southern Virginia Mountain Bike Association for their hard work and dedication and their great partnership with Danville's Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism. The SVMBA leads great club rides every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. They can be contacted through e-mail at svmba@adelphia.net.

Great XC trail system. A nice step-up elevation- and technicality-wise from the Raleigh-Durham trail systems. This is an easy half-day trip from the Triangle, and if I had more time, I'd make the trip more often. Trails are very well taken care of, and the SVMBA folks are always up for a ride. Definitely a must-ride destination if you live in NC or Virginia.

Greensboro has a good trail system too. You have to ride some rodes and cross some rodes to get to all the trails.Not much climbing,,but a lot of miles can be rode. If it rains, they close the trails.Don't drain very well.

These trails are a total gem! You wouldn't know it since they aren't really advertised, but there is almost 25 miles of ripping singletrack, complete with a gravity hill, multiple creek crossings, jumps, twisty singletrack, smooth flow, sapling mazes, rock gardens, and even a dreaded Graveyard hill or two tossed in for good measure.

If you ride it hard, you can get a pretty solid workout from the constant up and down hills. Or you can take it mellow and enjoy a good 3 hours exploring the trail network. Definitely worth multiple repeat visits.

If you break something, downtown Danville is not far away and there are at least two good bike shops in the area.

They host 2 well-run races every year, keep your eyes peeled! I did the Southside Scramble this year and it was a hoot.

This trail has it all. Great single track, well marked routes and challenging sections to get your heart pumping. What I really like about the trails are the variety. Some sections are classic foothills woods though streams and creeks with quick turns. Some sections are classic mountain trails, with big berms and big gulleys that shoot you down and up. Some of the trails are just great fast cross country.

The trail flows nice and is perfect for every skill level. It has the elevation change more experienced riders want, and it has the "flow" to make it inviting.

I live in Central NC and have lots of trails within an hour- this is by far my favorite- I like it better than Warrior Creek in Wilkesboro, NC because it is more interesting- and longer.

Customer Service

Hard ride- Crooked Stick to Little Pisgah to Hot Tamale to Camelback to Broken Arrow to Anglers Ridge. 12 mile loop.

fast and rip it- Anglers to camel back to hot tamale to little pisgah finish on crooked stick.

Cap off both with a thrill ride down gravity hill to parking lot.

Awesome Trail system. They have a little bit of everything here: Quick Flowy sections, Blazing Decents, Whoops, Creek Crossings, even some steep Climbs. There are several loops which are easy to follow so you don't have to worry about getting lost. SVMBA members helped us with Trail selection, they were great hosts and should be proud of the trails that they have created.

Customer Service

We rode the Red Loop (12 mi) and then the Blue Loop (5 mi). That was Enough. Contact the SVMBA for guidance they seemed eager to show off their Trails.

Anglers Ridge offers alot of great rolling singletrack,with some nice decents, great climbs, technical sections, log and creek crossings. The trail system was very well maintained, nice work SVMBA. Well designed and nicely constructed bridges. This trail system has alittle bit to offer for all riders from beginner to expert. Fast or slow neither will be disappointed. The Teeter-Tot-er was a nice touch as well! Looking foward to returning and riding the new Witchback trail. I was very impressed with the Loop System - the trail/loop markings were clear and easy to follow. Thanks for the recommendations and hospitality from the guys from SVMBA; our trip from Lynchburg was a great one!

Customer Service

Too many good trails. Our recommended route was a nice 2 mi. warm up with the GREEN LOOP. and then the 12 mi. RED LOOP. These two loops covered alot of the trails. Angler's Ridge also offers a 5mi. Blue Loop and the Witchback trail.

SVMBA has done an amazing job with this trail system, Some trail are very technical and all of them are fun. Trails range from very easy (Riverside Drive) for the speeders or you want to just relax, to the newest trail (Witchback) Very technical, 4-mile trail will have you in the work-out mood. I encourage friends in Maryland, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, to come out, Have even had a couple of friends come from England to Alglers, they said it was the most Mtn. Biking fun they have ever had
