MABDR: ALERT! Bear hunting on Section 2 – use extreme caution or avoid entirely

Oct 8th, 2018

Use extreme caution or avoid entirely: Section 2, north of Maggie, VA – especially Tub Run road in Craig County, VA. 

  • Riders have observed many bears, including mother bears and cubs.
  • Tub Run road is used heavily by bear hunters.  Hunters are likely to be distracted while driving – concentrating on their dog trackers, devices, and searching the woods.  There are blind turns on the road, and drivers may not see MABDR riders.

Bear hunting season in Virginia is October through early January.
