Shenandoah National Park

Swift Run Gap/Skyland Ride


Road bike; 50 miles; strenuous

Instead of stopping at Big Meadows (MM 51.2), continue the "Swift Run Gap to Big Meadows" ride 10 miles further north to Skyland (MM 41.7).  Just after Big Meadows, a fast, long downhill means a 2.5 mile climb will follow!  The remainder of the route becomes more like the rolling hills you experienced before Big Meadows.  Be sure to reserve some energy for the return climb to Big Meadows.  You’ll find great dining options at both Big Meadows and Skyland to refuel your body for this 50 mile round trip experience.
