Blue Ridge 

Hills & Hollows

The Blue Ridge Hills and Hollows (BRHH) gravel bikepacking loop connects eight county memorials via a 300-mile mixed-surface cycling route around Virginia’s Shenandoah National Park (SNP).

These memorials pay homage to the families and communities that lost their homes, land, and livelihoods in the Blue Ridge Mountains due to the formation of the national park in the 1930s.

Explore Beyond the Park's Boundary

Step outside of the tourism traffic

From a presidential retreat to colonial roads, go beyond the typical park experience to visit the haunts and hollows in the border areas just beyond the national park. Vestiges of bygone mountain homesteads still dot the landscape in these frontiers between mountain and flatland life. 

Experience Local History
on Two Wheels

The hills and hollows around the ridges and valleys that became Shenandoah National Park

have shaped the lives of people who have lived there for generations. Go beyond the

typical national park experience, and get to know the mountain and its history and culture

from every angle. Ride with the mountain as your constant companion as you travel through layer upon layer of Appalachian culture and history.
