Middlebrook Loop

This ride begins at the library in the middle of this historic village laid out in the 1790s. Besides farming equipment, the traffic on these country roads is light, and the scenery, punctuated by Little North Mt. on your shoulder along Summerdean Road, cannot be beat. Pack a lunch and picnic when you're finished.

A nice, rolling route through ancient orchards and farmland that now host houses and farmettes.  Watch for traffic in Staunton, especially at the end of the route where Old Greenville hits Old Greenville Ave where the road has become curvy and well-traveled.

This out-and-back is a challenging jaunt on loose gravel set in the North River watershed (a major tributary of the Shenandoah).  Start at Elkhorn Lake (restrooms available) and pedal uphill to the the West Virginia line.  From here, you can trace the ridge and picnic at Puffenbarger Pond before taking the thrilling downhill back to Elkhorn Lake.

A short, brisk ride down Route 11 (Lee-Jackson Memorial Highway), the Greenville-Raphine route yields some great views of pasture land and the Spy Mountains in the St. Mary's Wilderness Area to the east.  Start near the BB&T across from Indian Ridge Road just north of downtown Greenville.  Once you turn off Raphine Road onto Steeles Lane, keep an eye out for great picnic sites at the historic Cyrus McCormick Farm.

A scenic ride with wonderful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  You may experience some moderate to heavy traffic around Waynesboro. Note that at approximately the 6.8 mile mark, Long Meadow Road (SR 608) becomes Battlefield Road (SR 608) after it crosses New Hope-Crimora Road (SR 612).   North of the village of New Hope (after Patterson Mill Road- SR 778) be sure to look for the historical marker for the 1864 Civil War Battle of Piedmont that will be on your right as you go north.

Follow the same route that Native Americans and early settlers followed!  Rt. 11 was once part of the Warrior's Path and the Great Wagon Road before becoming a paved turnpike in the 1800s, transporting cattle, hogs, stagecoaches, and covered wagons.  The highways splits 15 miles south of Staunton, increasing the ease for cyclists and journeying through the historic villages of  Mint Spring, Greenville, Steeles Tavern, and Fairfield.

This is a short picturesque ride from an historic small city (Staunton) to an historic village (Middlebrook).  The entire route is on the lightly traveled, well maintained Hwy 252 with occasional good views of the Alleghenies.  It’s slightly uphill and often faces a headwind, but the ride is worth the effort.  The reverse is absolutely delightful as it features long downhill sections with the wind mostly at your back. It can be combined with Route 1, The Middlebrook Loop, for a thoroughly enjoyable 28 mile round trip.

For an alternate return on the Folly Mills Route, try this ride through some old farms and then along the old Middlebrook-Brownsburg Turnpike.  For the 1.8 miles from Chestnut Ridge to Middlebrook the road is gravel and a bit more challenging.

This pastoral loop begins next to the Old Providence Church cemetery north of Raphine.  While the ride is relatively short, it includes a few difficult hills as it circles the border between Augusta and Rockbridge Counties.  The loop passes the beautiful Wades Mill which is open for tours during the summer and fall months.  Right before Newport you can find a natural spring perfectly suitable for quenching your thirst and filling your bottle.
