Charlottesville Bicycle Club

Schuyler – Rockfish

Distance: 38 / 49 miles
Climbing: 70 / 65 feet per mile

​Description: From the Crossroads Store, this modestly hilly ride heads south to Alberene then into eastern Nelson County to the Rockfish area. The next stretch is an out-and-back along 5 miles of the Rockfish River on one of the flattest stretches of road in the area, followed by a climb up to the village of Schuyler before finishing with 15 miles of rolling terrain back to the starting point. Don’t miss the Walton’s Mountain Museum in Schuyler.  The short route skips the out-and-back along the Rockfish River.

Stores: Mile 0 (Crossroads); mile 22 / 33 (Schuyler)

Alerts:  There are two 2-mile stretches (at Mile 14.4 and Mile 24.6 / 35.6) on Route 6; traffic is fast but quite sparse and the road is broad with excellent pavement.
