Intermediate to Advanced Riders

Harrisonburg, VA is home to amazing single-track riding in the Blue Ridge Mountains: fast, tech rock, steep pitches, and ridgeline grand views. Massanutten Bike Park hosts sanctioned DH races, and the “Western Slopes” offers pedal and shuttle access to Enduro Series trails.

 Reddish Knob [4,397’] in the George Washington National Forest offers beautiful views as the trail takes us from a high ridgeline start and descends into well-built flow trails.
Harrisonburg’s historic downtown combines the mountain / outdoors / agricultural scene for the perfect après riding dining and experience.
A 3-hour drive from Dirt Rooster Bicycles.
