The Dolly Sods Two Plains "T" is a 13 mile bike ride that takes you out a Forest Road
and up a pipeline right of way to the high plateaus of
Roaring Plains and Flatrock Plains.
These are the highest plateaus
of their type in the eastern U.S. and contain a ecosytem that is unique within the United States and not to be missed.
On these high plains you will cross the
Eastern Continental Divide
and be able to see
North Fork South Branch Potomac River Valley,
North Fork Mountain
The ride begins next to, but does not enter, the
Dolly Sods Wilderness.
This is a out-and-back ride that goes from Forest Road 70 to the eastern edge of Roaring Plains
and then crosses to the western edge of Flatrock Plains. This path forms a "T" shape when viewed on a map. Hence the name.
This is not a technical ride but the right of way single track that climbs to Roaring Plains
is steep and contains wet and muddy sections which can make it tough. The Dolly Sods Wilderness
is off limits to biking due to its wilderness designation. There are plans to have the both Roaring Plains and Flatrock Plains
declared wilderness areas so do this ride while you can.
