Best Mountain Towns of the Blue Ridge – Part II from Blue Ridge Outdoors on Vimeo.

The city of Roanoke, Va., killed it this year in our 2013 Best Mountain Town poll. Also among the top three for Best Beer Town, our readers voted Roanoke Best Trail Town. Some local riders met me just outside the city at Carvins Cove to show me what the trails around town have to offer.
