Mill Mountain MTB Tour

Are you planning a visit to the area or are you new to mountain biking? Let RMA be your guide to the iconic Mill Mountain Star, where you can revel in spectacular views and experience thrilling singletrack trails! Our expert guides will ensure you're properly sized and equipped with top-notch Marin mountain bikes at our shop before shuttling you to the summit of Mill Mountain, where you'll be treated to breathtaking vistas of the Roanoke valley.

This outing is beginner-friendly, and our shuttle to the summit eliminates the most daunting aspect of riding at Mill Mountain – the 800-foot ascent! At the mountain's peak, we'll provide instruction in the fundamental riding skills before embarking on an exhilarating descent down the trails most suitable for the group.

Your experienced guide will lead the way down the mountain, introducing you to the trails that have made Roanoke the east coast's mountain biking capital! After we descend the mountain, it is a short and scenic ride back to our shop along the Roanoke River Greenway.

This guided adventure is the perfect choice for newcomers to the area, adventurous visitors seeking the ultimate scenic mountain biking experience without the arduous climb, and individuals looking to break into the world of mountain biking.
