Life Outside Spring 2018 - 3

If you love the outdoors, you'll love the

Alleghany Highlands

1. The Gran Fondo
Cycling Event offers
beautiful mountain views
and a serious King of the
Mountain competition.
There are new routes this
year, accommodating
various skill levels.
2. Just as the Jackson
River links together our
two towns and lakes,
the Alleghany Highlands
Blueway connects families
and friends. It's Uniquely
Alleghany!

The Alleghany Highlands is home to some of the finest outdoor
recreational terrain in the state offering phenomenal hiking and
mountain biking. Two lakes, two rivers and several streams create a
unique Blueway. Experience Douthat State Park's rigorous mountain
bike trails on May 6, at the Middle Mountain Momma mountain bike
race or participate in the Alleghany Highlands Triathlon on May 19,
one of the most unique triathlons in the region that includes a kayaking
segment. www.visitalleghanyhighlands.com/featured-events
The Jackson River Scenic Trail follows its namesake river, winding
along an old railroad bed of the C&O Railway. Enjoy the views on a
family hike or test your endurance at the Marathon, Half Marathon,
10K, & 5K on June 23, a Boston Marathon qualifier race! For more
