WHICH ROAD LESS TRAVELED WILL YOU RIDE FIRST?

Our Appalachian Backroads offer travelers countless ways to get your motor running. Our fourteen top-rated crooked riding routes provide scenic overlooks, high elevations and a variety of easy to technical experiences. Stay in one of our cabins, lodges or campgrounds and plan to ride a different route every day. Dare to tame technical rides like Back of the Dragon, Black Snake, Stripper’s Run and the granddaddy of them all, The Woodbooger. The mountains have something FUN for everyone, whether you like the heart-pumping thrills of hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, ATV riding, whitewater rafting, or rock climbing. If relaxing by a campfire, sipping local wines, tasting locally brewed craft beer, and tapping your toes to the music of the Crooked Road are more your style, we’ve got you covered. Visitors will also enjoy amazing natural wonders, ample wildlife watching, world-class fishing, kayaking, overlooks, and waterfalls.
