Mountain Biking Beech Fork State Park

Beech Fork State Park (Lost Trail, Mary Davis Trail, Coal Mine Trail, and North Ridge Trail) offers a variety of riding experiences. Some sections you can really move, while other sections are very rocky. Roots are also very prevalent on much of the trail. It is very challenging, but well of my favorite places to ride.

Getting there
Get off at Hal Greer Exit on I-64. Do not turn towards downtown. You want to turn towards signs for ALT Route 10. Go 5 miles to Hughes Branch Road (on the right hand side). It is clearly marked. Follow Hughes branch until it ends, where you will turn left. Shortly after turning left you should start seeing signs that say "Entering Beech Fork State Park". There is a small welcome center where you can park and unload. The trailhead is difficult to find and may take some assistance from someone who works there. You have to ride out towards the lake. You will see a large concrete bridge. Cross it. You will now be in a designated camping area where campers park and hook up. The trailhead is behind/beside one of the camp sites 100 yards or so back on the right.

Rider questions

Q: What is the easiest trail for beginners
A: If you want to do Beech Fork, a climb out Mary Davis trail and down around the lake back to Lost trail is reasonable. I would recommend the river trail at nearby Barboursville park as more beginner friendly.
