Douthat State Park sits in the Appalachian Mountains just a little over an hour’s drive north of Roanoke, Virginia. This 4,500 acre park provides a mix of newly-constructed trails as well as many miles of Civilian Conservation Corps legacy trails.
This 18-mile IMBA Epic loop is the highlight reel of the 40+ miles of trails at Douthat. A quick glance at the elevation profile shows no shortage of climbing—more than 3,600 feet of gain throughout the course of the ride.
With fall pushing it’s way south, foliage will be peaking at Douthat any day now. This weekend should be particularly stunning.
