Not much single track here. Avoid. Yes, this is well regarded for MTB by a few folks for some reason that completely escapes me. Local bike shop gave it a thumbs up, and the singletracks page opens with "Best biking in NW West Virginia Hands down." Allow me to modify: "Worst biking in NW West Virgina: Thumbs down."
If your idea of mountain biking is wandering up and down messy washed out fire roads then this is for you. Spent 3.5 disappointing hours riding here on an otherwise beautiful day. Very little singletrack, all trails are pretty much arrow straight and wide enough to accommodate mule carts as they were once developed for.) Oh, and for beginners who like uneventful doublewides... well I'm not sure that this place is for you either as the climbs are exceedingly steep, long and messy: loose rocks, sticks, errosion, etc.
What positive things to say? No real features to speak of though there is tons of potential for this place since it has an abundance of rock and ledge. Good views from Coopers Rock and it was fun (and suicidal) bombing down "rock city/ ridge trail" (Very steep loose and messy but again, not really a MTB DH, just a washed out cart road with occasional hikers to alarm and plenty of loose, grapefruit sized rocks and tree litter to slip and crash on).
If you like purpose built single track with rock gardens, jumps, switch backs, head over to Big Bear Lake which is loaded with great trails and good features.
Hope this place gets better developed for MTB.
ATV trails, cart roads, ski mobile trails... you get the picture.
