What better way to celebrate Mother's Day? This route starts with lots of rollers before the 7-mile climb up Thornton Gap to Skyline Dr. That should make Hogback and Mt. Marshall seem easy. You'll be rewarded with a 6-mile descent to Front Royal. The reason for riding Skyline in this direction is to get to Blue Mtn late in the ride. A 5-mile climb with 2 of them unpaved that's no problem for roadies. Rest stop options at miles 27, 45, 70 & 91. There's a park entrance fee of $8.

What better way to celebrate Mother's Day?
 

This route starts with lots of rollers before the 7-mile climb up Thornton Gap to Skyline Dr.
  That should make Hogback and Mt. Marshall seem easy.  You'll be rewarded with a 6-mile descent to Front Royal. 

The reason for riding Skyline in this direction is to get to Blue Mtn late in the ride.
  A 5-mile climb with 2 of them unpaved that's no problem for roadies.

Rest stop options at miles 27, 45, 70 & 91.

There's a park entrance fee of $8. I have a season pass and can get 3 others in for free, so we'll try to regroup at the gate.


***  Be sure to bring front and rear lights.  There is a park requirement to have lights.  They don't always enforce it, but they can deny you entry if you do not have lights.***

No go in rain.
  Check website and Google Group "Pedalers" for updates if weather's iffy.
