Carvins Cove is one of the premier spots for mountain biking in Virginia’s Blue Ridge. An impressive offering of single track, gravel fire roads, and downhill trails make it a popular place for bikers of all skill levels. Many trails offer challenging switchbacks and steep climbs, while other sections of the park provide flat, relaxing rides that include views of the water. The 12,600 acre space is the second largest municipal park in the United States and the over 60 miles of trails attract mountain bikers from around the world. The most common entry point for bike riders is via the Bennett Springs entrance, which is accessible from Route 311 to Carvins Cove Road.
