    Default Pearisburg to Bland post snowstorm

    Planning to get on the trail between Pearisburg and Bland this coming weekend. Friend of mine is coming and we are trying to plan some parking spots for logistics. It is supposed to snow 3-6 inches Wednesday, and we're traveling in on Thursday.

    My question is whether the roads to the Ribble Trail, Big Horse Gap, Sugar Run Gap will be passable? Never driven there. Will snow block us out, or are they still driveable with 4WD / AWD vehicles?

    Get in touch with the shuttlers in that area. People we've used are Don Raines and Bubba, but I don't have their numbers handy. They should be listed on the WB shuttle list and would be very familiar with the road conditions.

    i was there at both gaps 2 days ago. the roads are in good shape. AWD will do you just fine with a few inches of snow

    Many thanks to you both for personal experience and insight on this. Mountain/Forest Roads are not all made equal, so this eases my mind greatly.
