Poor Mountain Traverse - Trail, Salem, Virginia

Poor Mountain Traverse - Trail, Salem, Virginia

DESCRIPTION

Climb poor mountain road. Starts with 3 miles of pave and turns to dirt past last house. Climbs an impressive 2000+ feet up poor mountain till it tees into Honeysuckle road. Turn right and continue climbing till you get to the top of the ridge. The total climb is approx. 9 miles. Ride ridge past towers for 3 - 4 miles (blurry fast). You will come to a 4-way intersection in the middle of nowhere. Drop jeep road to the right, ignoring hand written signs about gate at bottom. This road is a right of way and will eventually turn into Brake Road and take you to your vehicle in Elliston. This downhill is approx. 6 miles and wicked scary fast. Not a very technical ride but covers a big mountain in less than 3 hours.

Kick butt jeep trail ride with loads of elevation and easy logistics. I rode this ride today in under 3 hours and covered a big mountain right outside of town.

Customer Service

Climb poor mountain road (route 612 from route 11 in Salem). Continue across ridge to 4-way intersection. Drop fire road on right. I recommend shuttling the 10 mile section of Route 11 between Elliston and Salem.
