Devil’s Marbleyard Circuit

8.3 miles; Moderate 

$5.00 carpool fee; 35 miles from Roanoke 

We will use the Belfast, Gunter Ridge and Glenwood Horse trails to form an 9.5 mile loop. The climb up Belfast Trail is extremely steep and rocky at times but a visit to the Devil’s Marbleyard will make it memorable. The trek along Gunter Ridge is mostly flat until you descend along 14 switchbacks to join the Glenwood Horse Trail, which you’ll follow in and out of short coves and up and over slight hills back to the starting point. To mix things up I am thinking of starting near Hellgate Creek rather than the Belfast trail.
