This route includes the most popular trails in the most popular direction. Some good climbs, flowy sections, a little technical in some spots, multiple creek crossings, and a long down hill to finish it off!

Staunton has been adding new trails to the park, so the big classic loop could change in the future.

 Staunton is a great park for a family hike, with stunning views, but I don't plan to ride my bike there again; it's better to drive another 15 minutes and ride at Buffalo Creek in my opinion. I guess I might ride there again if it were raining, or middle of the day on a weekday, so I could go a bit faster.
