Mountain Biking Gauley Headwaters
#18 of 110 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
Busting out into a beautiful meadow, you'll be impressed by the stature of the Monongahela National Forest ("the Mon" in local-speak). Then loosen your jaw and relax your elbows as you dive back into the woods for more fun in the rocks. Stay way behind your saddle as a phenomenal singletrack descent - loca**ay it's the tightest downhill in Pocahontas County - drops you into the Tea Creek campground. You can refill your water bottles and prepare for more mossy, shady, rocky, singletrack en route to the headwaters of Tea Creek. Just when you think you've seen enough rocks and hills, you'll be rewarded with smooth sailing on downhill doubletrack. You'll push yourself hard and you'll wonder how you can feel so tired when you're smiling so wide.
