More fun at Heritage Farm


Picture this. The wind is blowing through your hair, and the sun is shining on your face as you’re chauffeured up a mountain in a six-seat Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV). When you reach the top, your driver unloads your mountain bikes, points to five different paths and tells you, “We took you up, now you get to choose your adventure down.” 
Oftentimes, it can be difficult for the average person to experience the beauty of the Appalachian forest. But now, with Heritage Farm’s Mountain Rim Bike Park, the region’s novice and expert bikers alike can take part in an adventurous experience that Heritage Farm Executive Director Audy Perry describes as “invigorating.” 
“Mountain biking is one of the best ways to experience nature, especially in the Appalachian Mountains. The idea to add a mountain bike park to Heritage Farm was inspired during a family trip to Damascus, Virginia. While there, we saw an old rail bed that has been transformed into a beautiful mountain bike trail. When I saw that, I knew we had an opportunity to do something truly special with our own trails.”
