Great ride in beautiful stream-side woods. From White Top to Damascus (17 miles) it is easy downhill. While it does not need a ton of athletic stamina, one does need to be comfortable riding uneven surfaces. Kids (and adults) need to be able to control...More

I'd never been on a bike ride like this, mostly downhill. Not crazy downhill but a nice leisurely and fun ride. The gravel road can get bumpy but not too bad. The views are amazing. Plenty of bathroom stops along the way. The lunch stop...More

I'm not from the area so I don't know. You could check with local weather stations or tourism bureau. It probably varies slightly due to weather and temperatures which effect the quality of fall foliage.
