Mountain Biking Allegheny (park To Park)

*****   Add a review
#16 of 109 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#1,889 in the world

If you don't have a shuttle, start at Canaan Valley Resort (parking lot at the lodge). Ride out of the parking lot and go right toward the golf course. About 2/3 the way down the hill you will see Middle Ridge Trail on the left. Take it to the first intersection and then go right. Follow this loop trail to the next intersection, near a bridge and go right again. (Middle Ridge goes left there and back to the first intersection. After taking the right ride to the next intersecton (Allegheny Trail) and take another right. You are on your way to Canaan Loop Road now. Once you reach Canaan Loop Rd. go right and ride for a ways. If you want you can take Allegheny (Davis Trail) at the next trail head or continue to Fire Trail # 3 which is my favorite route. Go left on Fire Trail 3, ride to Plantation Tr. and go left. Ride that trail back past Allegheny (Davis Trail) till you reach Fire Trail 6. Go left on 6, back to Canaan Loop Rd., go left and ride a short distance to the intersection with Allegheny on your right which will backtrack you to Canaan Valley Resort. When you get back to the next intersection remember to stay left, across a wooden bridge and to change it up go right on Middle Ridge Trail after the next bridge. This will take you on the other part of Middle Ridge Loop. Go right when you get back to the place you started and come out again below the Lodge.

This is an awesome loop. Of course there are so many options once you get to Canaan Loop Rd., you make the choice. If you have a shuttle (two vehicles) you may choose to ride from one park to the other. Just follow Allegheny / Davis Trail all the way through.

Getting there
Not just a technical challenge, there is some sweet singletrack here as well. The long climb out of Canaan Valley to Canaan Loop Rd. is not an easy one, however on the way back it is an awesome downhill run. Just watch for other bikers and hikers. The Park to Park ride on the Allegheny Trial / Davis Trail connects Blackwater Falls State Park to Canaan Valley State Park. Go to Blackwater Bikes in Davis, WV and pick up a Canaan Valley Adventure Map. It has this trail listed and many others which will allow for a number of different loops.
