Heards Gravel

Afton, Virginia, USA

New - Hilly - Trails

Cruising out from the small rural town of Batesville, I divide this ride into 5 sectors of gravel. The first 2 are classic local up and down gravel roads of about 2 miles each. The next 2 sectors include the bigger climbs of Spring Valley Rd (past a scenic cherry orchard with a steep kick finish) and the very steady 2K climb of Heards Mtn Rd. A welcome scenic descent beckons an easier finish and our final sector the ALMOST flat Cove Garden Rd!
