This labyrinth of scenic and quiet roads in and around the tiny southern hamlet of Keen is highly recommended by long distances runners. The loop (sort of) takes you for a 13 mile spin (10 miles on gravel and 3 miles on pavement). An extra 7 miles can be added by doing another loop on Blenheim, but this time running the loop backwards (clockwise). A big thanks to Glen Anderson and T.J. Wilson for helping to design and measure this 13 mile loop.
DIRECTIONS: Keene is located about halfway between Charlottesville and Scottsville. Take 20 South (past Piedmont Community College) until you reach the Keene post office (located at 715 on your right as you enter Keene). Take a LEFT off Route 20 onto Coles Rolling Road (Route 712)... please note that Coles Rollin Road is located ACROSS the street from the post office. Follow Coles Rolling Road to Glendowner Road (Route 713 on your RIGHT). Turn right and follow until you see Christ Church on your RIGHT. This is where you will be parking.
PARKING: Park at Christ Church.
