    Arcadia Up and Over Ride

    Last Friday’s turkey and pumpkin pie burner. Started on North Creek near Arcadia.

    Warmed up on pavement, then some dirt road

    Onto singletrack for a bit



    Then departed onto some doubletrack for a long climb




    At Parker Gap

    The rest of climb is beneath Apple Orchard Mountain


    The top

    The view from Sunset Fields


    Across the road


    A right onto Glenwood Horse Trail

    Through the rhodo’s for a while

    Over the top, and down into Bedford County for a bit

    The leaves make this trail look so innocent, it is not


    1.5 crashes later for me, we get down to Overstreet Falls I believe it is called



    A dirt road climb back up to the parkway, then some road and Cornelius Creek

    Beautiful stretch of creek and trail, full of rocks like the other side of the mountain



    Return via North Creek
    Pardon the fuzzy pics, cheap new camera ain't all that

    Some 411 from one of the originators of this loop.

    Arcadia Up-n-over Mountain Bike Trail in Roanoke, Virginia || SINGLETRACKS.COM

    The "up" part is pretty easy to navigate, the "over" is a little trickier but not too bad
