Cranberry Glades Backcountry - TRAIL

Cranberry Glades Backcountry - Trail, Mill Point, Virginia

Start out through meadows, then into the forest and backcountry, across streams (there are bridges). There are not a lot of elevation changes, but when it's wet, the tree roots and rocks can be difficult. If you stray from the trail at all, you can end up axle deep in marsh and bog. It is an awesome ride, lots of beaver dams and wildlife. The last mile or so is gravel/dirt road. Backpacking is allowed; also makes a good afternoon ride.

The trail meanders through a wide open meadow, but stay on the trail. Areas off the trail are marshy and wet. The trail cuts back to the left into the forest, over bridges. You're in the forest awhile, relatively flat, before climbing to higher meadow area. Descend into the forest for the duration until reaching the dirt/gravel road for the last mile or so back to the parking area. Lots of wildlife, many beaver dams. Great afternoon ride.

Park in vistor parking lot at trailhead for the "walking tour". Bike back up the road you came in on about 1/4 mile, cut left onto trail, follow markers.
