Explore Gravel Road Cycling in the Blue Ridge Mountains

The Blue Ridge Mountains, with their rolling landscapes and scenic beauty, offer an inviting playground for outdoor enthusiasts seeking a blend of adventure and relaxation. Among the myriads of activities available, gravel road cycling stands out as a thrilling way to immerse oneself in nature while exploring the hidden gems of this picturesque region. Paired with a luxurious glamping vacation, it becomes an unforgettable adventure that combines the thrill of exploration with exceptionally comfortable accommodations nestled in the middle of nature.

Gravel road cycling has surged in popularity in recent years, attracting cyclists eager to leave paved roads behind and venture into the less-traveled paths. Southwestern Virginia is quickly becoming known for their winding gravel roads and provides an ideal setting for this growing trend. The allure of these routes lies in the captivating scenery, challenging terrains, and the sense of tranquility offered by the remote and unspoiled landscapes.

Cyclists embarking on a gravel biking escapade in the area can expect a diverse range of trails catering to various skill levels. From gentle, rolling hills to more demanding ascents and descents, the region's terrain offers an exhilarating challenge for both novice and experienced riders. As cyclists traverse these paths, they are rewarded with breathtaking vistas of verdant valleys, cascading waterfalls, and dense forests that adorn the mountainsides.

The gravel roads winding through the mountains often lead to hidden gems such as secluded overlooks, crystal-clear streams, and historic landmarks tucked away from the bustling tourist trails. Each pedal stroke becomes an opportunity to discover the region's rich history and natural splendor, fostering a deep connection between the rider and the landscape.

After a day of thrilling exploration on two wheels, cyclists can unwind and rejuvenate in the lap of luxury at Stargazer Park, located just one mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 176. Glamping, also known as glamorous camping, offers an elevated outdoor experience without compromising on comfort. Stargazer Park offers four vintage RVs which are fully renovated and feature modern amenities to keep you comfortable during your stay. This is where the rugged beauty of nature harmonizes with the refined comforts of modern living. Each spacious, fully equipped vintage camper sleeps two adults with all the extra comforts you sacrifice when camping. Imagine a cozy bed with plush bedding, soft linens, a private bathroom, air conditioning, a refrigerator and whimsy décor. Step outside, take a seat and savor your morning coffee watching the sun rise or enjoy an evening cocktail under the stars.

The outdoor spaces are equally inviting, with fire pits, beautiful views, plenty of seating, and a spacious covered pavilion that allow guests to soak in the beauty of the surrounding landscape. Witness nature come alive with birds singing and deer quietly navigating all around you. Enjoy a walk in the woods to a nearby creek while observing the flora and fauna that surround you.
