Trail Description
About this trail
One of the most highly rated trail networks in West Virginia. Loads and loads of well maintained singletrack that has a little bit for everyone. Some pretty good climbs to test your endurance, some really long, fun downhill sections and many different loops or directions to take. Park at the Marina parking lot and pick your poison from there.

Review: First time hitting up these trails. Didn't come as prepared as I should have as I had trouble finding the trail head. Once I got past that, I had a blast here. A lot of the trails I've ridden in WV you are either climbing or descending. These trails have a great mix of flow and are a blast. provably one of the best trail systems I've ever ridden and I didn't even scratch the surface here. I'll definitely be coming back.

Review: Flowing fun singletrack, well-maintained by a dedicated group of local cyclists for the last couple decades. Trails are well-marked and consist of various length loops totaling around 32 miles, most of which can be ridden in one big tour through the mountains. These trails are especially outstanding in their rain-resistance, owing in part to the soil conditions and in large part to the carefully designed trails which shed water off. Some of the older trails do run down fall lines and can collect some water, but most of them are still hard underneath and you come out with cleaned tires most times. The River Valley Mountain Bike Association (RVMBA) is the primary group that works these trails . A number of volunteers have been doing this for many years, building up a base of rocks, log runs and bridges to keep the trail flowing along and keep riders out of the mud that would otherwise pepper the hills and hollers that these trails run along. Monthly trail maintenance as well as frequent ad-hoc repairs are performed year-round. If you are looking for highly technical singletrack like Canaan or Davis, this is not what you're looking for. If you're looking for singletrack playground and a foot or two of swooping undulating rail perched along hill sides, along ridges and overlooking forest and lake views, this is a destination you'll want to visit.

Review: rode here with the RVMBA and OMBC race. Only did the sport division, but those 13 miles and 1800 feet of elevation gain were great. this trail was in fantastic shape, considering all the rain we had in the days prior. Can't wait to ride more here as the uphills were challenging, but the downhill was great. nice switchbacks, some nice features, creek crossing. Well done RVMBA.

Review: Love Heading south in the spring for a ride at Mountwood. this trail has the climbs and miles for a great spring training ride. The copperhead trail has some nice flow and fast. I've done the race that WVMBA puts on in the spring. This is a great event and draws out a lot of bikes. Also gets 5 stars for being well maintained early in the riding season. Fun trail.

Review: One word..............FLOW!! These trails are well maintained and groomed. Some sweet bridges, awesome downhills and some nice long climbs. Hats off to RVMBA. Mount wood is the host of the largest MTB race in the state of WV. Check it out if your in the Parkersburg area.

Review: We were on our way back home from road riding in Virginia and wanted to get in some Mtn biking. These trails are wonderful.... something you would travel to and enjoy. Not very technical but some really tough ascents depending on direction chosen. These trails are so so much better than North Bend a few miles away as we did both in one day but did not hit all of Mountwood at all.
