Mountain Biking Plantation Trail
#11 of 108 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#451 in the world
I've used this trail to make several different loops and enjoyed all of them. If you just want to ride Plantation, begin at Rt.32 ride it all the way through to Canaan Loop Rd., then take a left on Canaan Loop Rd. and ride back to the top of Canaan Heights and Rt.32. Go left on Rt.32 and ride back to your vehicle.
For a real challenge, start at Canaan Valley Resort, ride the Park to Park (Allegheny Trail) to Canaan Loop Rd., go right on CLR and ride to Fire Trail #3, left on #3 to Plantation. Left on Plantation and ride to either Fire Trail #6 or Lindy Trail and go left on either which will bring you back to Canaan Loop Rd., left on CLR and back to Park to Park where you will then go right and ride back to Canaan Valley Resort. See Allegheny Trail - Canaan.

Best access if off Rt. 32 about 3 miles south of Davis, WV. Trail is marked well.
Runs from Rt.32 through the middle of Canaan Loop Rd. and comes out on Canaan Loop Rd. at the far end. Several options are available when riding Plantation by using the Fire Trails #3 and #6, Daivs Trail (Allegheny Trail), Lindy Trail, Railroad Grade Trail and Canaan Loop Rd. (Forest Service Rd. #13).
This trail is a true XC trail, not manicured singletrack. That in mind, this trail is not for the light hearted. It has every obstacle one can think of including rocks, roots, stream crossings, rocks, roots, logs, rocks, roots, steeps, and mountain laurel so tight you'll have scratches on your arms to prove you were there. Oh and did I mention rocks? And how about mud ! Yep, it's there too.
