Jackson River Scenic Trail

PedalPushin AK

September, 2022 by llkamitchell

Excellent ride on a well maintained crushed stone trail. We did the whole trail on recumbent trikes. Definitely would recommend to all cyclists.

Greenbrier River Trail

PedalPushin AK

September, 2022 by llkamitchell

We rode the section from Renick to Seebert on 9/23/22. The ride was wonderful, the scenery engaging, and we saw both deer and a black bear who crossed the trail in front of us just north of the Droop Mountain tunnel. Although the surface is crushed cinders/gravel, the trail was in need of maintenance. We were constantly dodging branches and sticks and several sections simply needed mowed as the center line between the two tracks made if difficult for us to ride our recumbent trikes. We saw very few other cyclists but truly enjoyed the ride.

Chessie Nature Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2022 by mawbell

Trail is not marked. Had to ride on the road to get to trailhead parking. I would suggest parking a little past trailhead. You do have to stop and open several gates and ride past a few nice cows. Enjoyed the ride and then visited downtown Lexington for beer and pizza at Salernos! Also visited Heliotrope Brewery! Fun outing!

Allegheny Highlands Trail

A great hidden trail

September, 2022 by vdeal

I'll break this review into two parts. First up is the section from Elkins to the Corridor H construction at mile marker 16. We parked behind the Elkins train station and the trail starts there on small side streets in Elkins and quickly crosses Rt 92 and follows a sidewalk and ramp up to a pedestrian/bike bridge over Rt 250. After a short, curving downhill it heads out of town. The trail is paved for almost 4 miles. After that it is largely double track that is easy to ride. This trail features nice wooded areas, open farmland, fields, mountain views and parallels Leading Creek for quite a ways. There are a few very short shared use road sections that are really nothing. At Montrose the trail goes single track for a ways and a quarter mile section is all grass but there is an adjacent road that you can ride. After that it starts a gradual 2% grade up the ridge and then crosses over at the county line and drops towards Porterwood. At the 16 mile marker there are concrete barricades for the Corridor H construction area that you can easily go around. We went a bit further but it was quite muddy from recent rain and there was some construction activity so we turned around. We did meet a fellow who pushed his bike up through the mud and he said it was about a quarter mile long. If it had been dry and a weekend we would have gone through. This section was quite enjoyable.

The other section I have ridden by parking in Parsons near the old railroad depot. The trail is paved to Hendricks and up to about Porterwood. Other than some root heaves along the Black Fork of Cheat this is an excellent trail. The river is always nearby and on the Porterwood side there are plenty of Civil War signs about the battle fought here.

There are plenty of amenities in Elkins and Parsons has a decent amount also so you should be covered. Go and enjoy the trail. As noted in another review the trail website and Facebook page are woefully out of date or inadequate. Take these reviews as a recommendation to go ride this trail.

Greenbrier River Trail

Pristine trail slated for 2 1/2 year closure, mm3 to mm6

August, 2022 by 2334455669

If you plan to ride the whole 77 mi after 9/7/2022, you can't. The city of Lewisburg is planning to close the trail on the Caldwell end to dig it up and put in a water line. You can still ride from Cass to Anthony but there is no access to the construction portion (unless they relent and make accommodation for trail users.) Safest place to leave a vehicle is at Renick. Hopefully, the Visitor's Center will have current information available.

Allegheny Highlands Trail

Beautiful Scenery, Much Variety

August, 2022 by bobnupp

Aug 2022. Bicycled from Parsons to Elkins (22 miles) and back. The views were great and there were many changes along the way: small town, forest, rural homes, creek-side, farm-side, and historic downtown. More than half is shaded by trees. The path is mostly off-road dedicated trail, with a few segments on lightly-used rural roads. The trail surface is mostly dry, solid dirt with a thin layer of fine gravel; we found it easy. The grade is flat in the southern half and sloped north of Montrose, though never difficult because it's railroad grade. There are no amenities between Elkins and Parsons, so bring water.

Although there is an official two-mile trail closure between Montrose and Parsons due to Corridor H freeway construction, we went around the barriers and rode through with no issues other than a bumpy ride over coarse gravel.

It's hard to get accurate status for this trail. The Facebook pages are old, and the official web site is stale: It says there is construction from Gilman to Kerans, but in reality, that segment is now fully open.

Definitely worth your time!

Davis Trail

This is a rail-trail?!?

August, 2022 by sneidlinger1

Attempted this trail back in July and it was a HUGE mistake on my part. I’m sure that if I left earlier and had a higher-end MTB and more experience, I would have been fine. Unfortunately for my skill level and bike limitations the entire 1.5miles I traveled were an absolute nightmare and I would NOT attempt again without a Sherpa and a better bike. This is a single-track trail and what I would consider a black diamond level trail - NOT a beginner trail as other resources have pointed out. It’s very thick with growth, rocks, roots and tech.

Blackwater Canyon Trail

Worth the 10 mile climb

August, 2022 by sneidlinger1

Started in Hendricks - The climb is not bad at all, just long. Make sure you have good gravel tires or MTB and climb is very well worth the rewarding return trip back down with plenty of beautiful scenery. There are two large trees down about the halfway point but plenty of room to dismount and go around. Remember to take lots of water.

Greenbrier River Trail

Beautiful Greenbrier River

August, 2022 by sgb0546

I have only ridden this trail twice and only as far as Cass to Marlinton, but what I've seen so far is excellent! Well maintained trail and beautiful scenery are hard to beat. I hope time allows me to complete the whole trail someday.

Greenbrier River Trail

Along the river, shady, and flat - what more could you ask for?

August, 2022 by vbielanski

My friends and I, all women, have biked a longer bike trail each year for over 20 years. We range in age from 57 to 70 years. We chose to bike the Greenbrier River Trail in June of this year, 2022. We’ve ridden many trails and the Greenbrier ranks high on our list of favorite bike trails. It is almost entirely along the river and almost entirely in the shade. It was fantastic. The trail is not long enough to fill a week with just riding, so we added a few other activities this year to make the trip from Illinois to West Virginia worthwhile.
On our way to the trail, we stopped at the New River Gorge National Park. We stayed overnight at Hawk’s Nest Resort. We did a powerboat ride on the river, hiked the Endless Wall Trail, drove the Fayette Station Road, and stopped at the Grandview Overlook. It was beautiful and we highly recommend this park.
We then drove to Lewisburg, WV and stayed overnight. The next day we drove to Anthony, parked our car at the trailhead, and started biking the Greenbrier River Trail. Our plan was to bike around 30-35 miles a day. Shortly after we started to bike that first day, a bear ran from the river up to the trail about 10 feet in front of us, ran down the trail and up into the woods. That was pretty exciting for Illinois folks! We stayed the first night in Watoga State Park in a wonderful cabin that had a fully equipped kitchen. Cabins 1 and 2 are near the river and right inside the park boundaries. When we made the reservation we were told that the other cabins are three miles uphill. Jack Horner’s Corner in Seebert is right off the trail and has some food and supplies. The next day we biked to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park. Along the way we stopped in Marlinton for lunch. There are a few restaurants in Marlinton, a bike shop, grocery store, etc. and cell service. In Cass we stayed at one of the Company Houses for two nights. We rode the scenic train to Bald Knob, a 4-hour ride up to the top of the mountain and back. That was fun. We ate in the Company Restaurant while we were in Cass. The next day we headed back toward Anthony, staying in the cabin in Watoga State Park again. We brought food and plenty of water with us because food was limited. But, there were several of bathrooms and places to get water because the trail is very camper friendly. A map that is available from the West Virginia State Parks has all the bathrooms and water locations marked on the map. Cell phone service was pretty much not existent (which I liked) on the trail but you could get service in the “bigger” towns. There are small homes along most of the river, so it’s not complete wilderness. The trail is in great shape. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this trail and our time in West Virginia. West Virginians are very friendly and helpful people.

Chessie Nature Trail

Great experience

July, 2022 by dcsnyder

What a neat & different trail. To ride in a few cow pastures is pretty cool. Nice 14 mile round trip, mostly wooded, near the river. Surfaces vary but can be handled with even 32mm all terrain tires. Some bumpy areas and of course cow poop. Fun times!!!

Lifecore Trail

urban trail with a park

July, 2022 by tom.joy

Paved urban trail - not a RT. Plenty of parking at the “Wilson” end, since the other end just stops at a construction site. Many of the road crossings are small and the large ones have signal control buttons. Not flat - comfortable ups and downs past housing developments, medical offices, and hospital. McD and other fast food at the end the route along Tinkling Spring Rd. Augusta Kitchen (closer to trail head) looked like a great place to eat, but only opened at 11:00 and we rode earlier. A pleasant park down a short paved access road off the parking lot with 1/2 mile walking trail around small lake to enjoy after your ride. Also has clean & modern bathroom.
