Mountain Biking Kennison Mountain Trail
#20 of 109 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
Leave Vistors Center going west on Rt.39, cross the top of the mountain and watch for the next fire road on the right (FR232 Dogway Rd.) Take FR232 to the gate and park. Take Frosty Gap trail on the right when looking at the gate. Ride Frosty Gap for about a mile. Take Kennison Mtn. Trail to the left and follow it till you come out on a grassy fire road. Along the way there are rock gardens, root gardens, some very scenic pine forest, some climbs, some downhills, and a couple neat boardwalks. Go left on the grassy fire road and follow it to intersection with FR232. Go left on FR232 and climb back to the gate. Not a difficult climb, just steady. Total loop is around 9 miles. This is a must do if you are in the area.

Only using part of Kennison Mtn. Trail for this loop. Not recommended for XC beginners. Intermediate riders should be able to enjoy this trail and learn some new skills. A little over 1/2 this loop is singletrack, the other half, fire roads.
Kennison Mtn. Trail actually starts off Pocahontas Trail a couple miles west of the Cranberry Visitors Center and crosses Rt.39 and will take you all the way to the Cranberry River. (Note: no crossing at the Cranberry - Thigh deep ford only to the Cranberry River Trail). That is why loop is recommended.
