Stokes County and other places...

From Lewisville a couple of hours will take you up and around Hanging Rock mountain, using a lot of the roads King Jarhead mentioned above - about 100 miles. Add another hour and you can hit Vashti and Brushy Mountain to the west or Pine Swamp Road above Roaring Gap to the north. Four hours could include breakfast at Tuggles Gap. Then there is always Troutdale and VA 601...but that takes half a day at least. Essentially no traffic and plenty of nice views on any of these routes.

I love western Forsyth County.

Wow, now I wish I'd asked this about three months ago! Thanks everyone, I'll definitely be exploring these routes in earnest once Spring roles round, though I will hopefully get some more riding in much before that too. Glad to know there are some locals!

Best way to really find the fun roads and get some real exploring in is to get in on the NCNCTAR game.
There are so many fun roads around here. Hwy 89 from Mt Airy to Danbury is so fun.
Hwy 40 from Woolwine to Rocky Mount Virginia is a blast. All roads leading to Indisn Valley, Va are fun.

+1 This area is by far the best riding close.

Hi there,

I thought I would introduce myself, been living in Winston since I got out of the Marine Corps back in 97. Just took ownership of a fancy new CRF250L and have begun exploring the area. Hope to head out as much as the weather and my better half will allow. Haven't ridden much since my Marine Corps days, hard to believe it's been 15 years.

Didn't realize how much I missed it until I was back in the saddle, happy to be back at it.

Cory

Welcome back to riding. I live in Pinnacle. Follow the NCNCTAG and the Greensboro meet and greet thread for local activity. The tag game is by far where most of local riders follow.

I don't know of any trails off hand, but I'd happily meet up with locals to ride. I would be open to making a day trip out to brushy mtn. or something, weather permitting of course.

Yep, I played the VA TOR that took me to the Busbee Hydro Plant in Ivanhoe. I rode 97n to Galax then 94 to Ivanhoe then 69 to 52 to BRP down Wards Gap to 89 to 66 to home. Great loop and some fun side back rodes.

Just found an interesting link - Wytheville VA publishes a map of motorcycle rides through the area.

http://www.visitwytheville.com
Under drop down box of "what to see and do" is the selection of motorcycle trails.
