Longdale Recreation Area is a 8.4 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Clifton Forge, Virginia. The trail is rated as difficult and primarily used for mountain biking.
Gem of the area and not enough use or attention. Not only are the trails pretty decent, but the history... CCC era building. Black history in the local NAACP chapter. Take your pick of trails, you won't be disappointed. Chances to turn your day into a nice loop hike.
Our family chose this trail for our Christmas Day walk. It is an easy walk along a logging road which has gradual hills and gentle turns. The recent harvesting of trees lends itself for good views of the westward mountains. We walked this, but it looks like a great ride for an X-cross bike or mountain bike.
