Green Mountain Trail

Mountain Biking
Level of Difficulty: Intermediate

A 3.4-mile long back, singletrack trail that takes you from the Deep Gap trailhead parking lot to Lake Blue Ridge. Parts of the trail are a bit eroded and technical, but the ride will leave a smile on your face. From Aska Rd, you have a choice to either take the path to the left or the path to the right. They connect back up at the 1-mile mark, and the trail then continues on towards the lake. After the initial climb, you are in for a great downhill ride to the shores of Lake Blue Ridge, or you can make a right onto Long Branch connector trail at the 1.6-mile mark and try out the nearby Long Branch Loop Trail. At the lower end of the Green Mountain Trail, you can turn around and ride back or continue straight onto FS 711 to make the ride a loop. If you choose the loop option, continue on FS 711 until it dead ends into Campbell Camp Circle. Make a left on Campbell Camp Circle and follow it about a quarter mile until it runs into Campbell Camp Rd. No matter which direction you go on Campbell Camp Rd, it runs into Aska Rd. Head south on Aska back to your car at the Deep Gap trailhead parking lot. The loop route is approximately 7 miles.
