Spring Lake Barber Ridge Gravel Loop
Spring Lake is GRAVEL-CENTRAL for the RVOORC club. This route is a good example of the sweet and challenging gravel in the area. Climbing Barber Ridge ain’t no joke. Start at the Spring Lake entrance. Park outside the gate if it is the off-season. Don’t block the gate. You are allowed to cycle through the park when it is closed. In the summer, you can go into the park and leave your truck by the swimming hole. Have a nice swim to cool off after a summer ride!
Distance: 23 miles
Climbing: 1452 feet
Surface: Mostly gravel. There is a little pavement at the beginning.
Safety: There is no support and few houses on the route. No water or bathrooms at Spring Lake in the off-season.
