“If you are just looking for quality BBQ this is a wonderful spot with lots of delicious southern sides (mac & cheese, slaw, hush puppies, fried okra, etc) – it is a no frills atmosphere but delicious if that is what you are in the mood for – the same owners own the Fatback Soul Shack down the street but I haven’t had the chance to try it yet, I have only heard good things! ”

The trail also splits off just outside of Blacksburg and continues on thru the Foxridge complex and, once completed, will go all the way to the Heritage Park on Glade Rd in Blacksburg. Heritage Park connects directly to Forest Service land from the parking lot on Meadowview Dr in Blacksburg. ”
