The area around Gauley Mtn is awesome. Sooo many trails. Best bet is to stop at Elk River Touring Center off 219 in Slatyfork, 1/4 mi. south of Beckwith Lumber, and purchase the rugged trail map they have there for about $9.00. Has all the trails listed and even some great suggested rides.
Bear Pen, Red Run, Tea Creek Mtn., Tea Creek, Boundary, Turkey Point, Bannock Shoals, Gauley Mtn., and can't forget Props Run. You can spend a few days in this area. Then drive just a few miles to the Cranberry area and hit Pocahontas, Kennison Mtn., So
