Starting at the Humpback Rocks Visitors Center at milepost 6 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the route heads south on the Parkway, climbs up to the Raven’s Roost overlook, and continues on the Parkway for another 14 miles. The route then turns around and retraces the Parkway back to Humpback Rocks Visitors Center. There is a lot of climbing, but nothing is too steep.
And since the route is an out and back, you can turn around at any point and make the ride whatever distance you want it to be!
