New Virginia Ridge is an alternate road following the Daniel Boone Backcountry Byway. It is one of the more calm and subdued backcountry drives in the entire network. Tall hardwoods line the gentle dirt road while you wind down, around, and past flowing tributaries and Hawk Branch. If you roll the windows down or take the top off, you can hear the crystal clear water flowing as you drive by. Towards the end, the trail runs along the edge of Big Sinking Creek, where structures remain from oil and gas booms that went bust before it reaches Bald Rock Fork. It is a perfect addition when driving the Byway.
