Alhambra Blue Ridge Gravel Climb

Vesuvius, Virginia, USA

Trails - New - Trending

Alhambra is a 9.5 mile long part paved/part gravel climb that does not actually intersect with the Blue Ridge Parkway. Because it does not connect or cross the parkway it is a VERY lightly traveled road (mostly used by campers). It is a kinder summer climb as it is pretty densely tree covered and runs along the Piney River for almost its entire duration. I included the similarly secluded and picturesque gravel warm up climb, Jack’s Hill to help you prep for this long climb. Chances are stronger for you to outpace the filming speed as there is some quite chunky gravel with large rocks in places. Enjoy the solitude!
