Trail Description
About this trail
These are awesome trails for beginners to practice their skills on and just a beautiful ride for even the experianced. For the experianced rider, be sure to find your way to Mt. Strip Mine, Moonrock, and Hoo Doo Rocks. For the inexperianced rider, you can take on everything the lower trails have to offer. Once those feel easy, then take a chance at the three more difficult areas. You can make up sooo many different loops in here it is amazing. Impossible to get lost, just decide which way to go and ride. Keep those eyes open as well and you might even get to see one of the black bear that call this area home. In July and August be sure to have something to carry some of the blueberries that grow everywhere along the trails. To get some awesome views of the wind power units, climb up on Mt. Strip Mine. See pics. This is no doubt one of the most awesome places in the Tucker County area that any rider can enjoy. Camp 70 Rd. follows the blackwater river and can be used to link anywhere along the trails. There are also primative campsites along Camp 70 Rd. where you can camp right along the river and enjoy the trails without driving any further. Loops can be ridden and by crossing Rt.32 in Davis you can connect with Blackwater Falls State Park, make a loop up to Plantation Trail, out Lindy, back Canaan Loop Rd. into Blackwater Falls and back to camp. Many other trails in the area, see Blackwater Bikes for more. Check out the pic of a map for the CVI trails. It's not the greatest but will let you know the basic layout of the trails.

Review: Rough trail with very little flow. Tons of options for various length, but rough on a hard tail.

Review: Read the description and felt compelled to try. Glad I did, beautiful scenery, but., I am not a great technical rider and this exceeded my abilities. Trails to Hoodoo and Moonrocks were all push, it was wet so that contributed. Not hard from a cardio/climbing perspective, just technical

Review: I rode from the Grocery store to Moonrocks and Hoodoo and back, which was about 10-12 miles, I think. There is a relatively flat approach through the meadows which is hot in the sun, but the trail is fast and a nice warm-up. Moonrocks is a very technically challenging climb, and I did a lot of dabbing and swearing. The gentleman at the bike shop assures me that there is a clean line through it, and I believe him, but I did not find the line myself. The top of Moonrocks is a playground of rollers and drops where I took off my pack and hike-a-biked several different lines. There is a nice view point at the top of Hoodoo, with more fun features grouped together along the side of the trail. The decent back towards town is a relentless chunderfest, in a good way. Lots of rocks and roots, but plenty of flow if you're on a good line.

Overall, this is a very cool trail. Its not built up much at all, but the backcountry feel and abundance of natural features makes it a lot of fun. If I only I had more time in the area, and more life in my legs, I definitely be excited about seeing all the trails in the area.

Review: Been here several times. CVI trail network offers something for all skill levels. If your a beginner you can ride the multiple loops around camp 70 road to get in plenty of miles. If your a bit more advanced, head over towards the moon rocks and the hoo doo rocks for quite the technical adventure. Some of the toughest trails I've ever ridden. Put this on your bucket list!!!!

Review: Echoing the previous review for the new trail, Splash Dam. Don't be fooled by the first quarter-mile headed back to town -- this rapidly become a 3 mile trials course. A TOTAL HOOT!

Review: New Trail - Splash Dam
If you haven't hit this one yet, make sure you do. Very rocky sections, some spectacular scenic locations on the trail, on the opposite side of river to Camp70 Road. Start out Rt.32 toward Canaan Valley, go less than 1/2 mile and take road to left. Trail starts immediately to the right off that gravel road. Will bring you out at the new bridge across Blackwater River at the end of Camp 70 Road. Super fun in both directions.

Review: Hey folks, now is the time to ride these trails. They are dryer than I've even seen them. Be sure to stop in at Blackwater Bikes and purchase the new map they have recently had produced. Shows trail in the entire area, many of which are not on other maps. This place is my favorite place in the state. If you want a local to show you these trails, check with Blackwater Bikes. There is usually a local willing to show you this awesome area.

Similar Trail: CVI is a perfect place for those learning the skills, or an addition for those who want a challenge. If you want a challenge, be sure to include the Moonrocks / Hoodoo rocks loop and then hit the stuff over on Canaan Mtn. (Plantation Trail, etc.)
