Written Directions

Sugar Loaf Mountain Road starts just off Route 419 on the south side of Roanoke VA. Take it (later it changes names to Mt. Chestnut Road) to the end at Route 221. Turn right. After a short distance take another right onto Twelve O'Clock Knob Road. This takes you back to Roanoke, ending on Riverside Drive.

Scenery

When you can take your eyes off the road there are great views.

Road Quality

This route has more twists and turns than you'll find in any other city!!! Some are very tight so be careful.

Roadside Amenities

Not much, but check out the Valhalla Winery near the top of Mt. Chestnut Road. Very thing else you need is in Roanoke.

Definitely will test your riding abilities!! Unfortunately I rode after we have had alot of rain there was gravel at the end of every driveway, so be on the lookout! I rode 12 oclock knob road towards Salem VA downhill, but would have been better going uphill I am sure, the road surface was very uneven, 15mph speed limit but did 25 was on a bike of course. Be careful. Take 221 towards Cave Spring/ Salem for a great view coming down out of the mountains. Definitely a twisty road and narrow...look where you want to go
