Mountain Biking Little Beaver State Park - Railroad Grade Trail

****   Add a review
#58 of 109 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#6,328 in the world

This trail is a loop that is fairly flat, but moderately technical because of the rock, roots and seasonal stream beds it crosses. Many riders use the trail as a launching point for other trails within Little Beaver State Park. It is a very beautiful trail that will leave you beat up and exhausted. (not because of climbs - its flat) This trail does not have easy stretches to give you a rest - it is a rock bed from beginning to end.

    This trail is a loop one side of the loop is less technical and has more flow, the other side is very technical with several rocky and rooty areas. This park is full of technical trails that challenge your ability but are a lot of fun. Trails are under used but maintained, this is a hidden jewel and a great place to ride.

    Flat loop set on a constant rock bed with frequent sections of roots. I pushed my bike some because it exceeded my skill level.* Review edited 9/23/2009
