This is located in a state park, so an $9 daily pass or annual pass is required.

This route highlights the best way to get the full Staunton experience. Covering all the singletrack trails in the most efficient way and of course providing the best downhill experience.

The route includes the recently created West Meadow Trail, which now provides a better climb option to the top of Chimney Rock Trail.

"Bailout" Option: After Chimney Rock Trail this route climbs back over marmot passage in the reverse direction before starting up Border Line Trail. If you are short on time or legs you can take the Bugling Elk dirt road. I however suggest Marmot passage as its a much different trail in the reverse direction and a lot of fun, and keeps the ride at virtually 100% singletrack.
