Mountain Biking Red Run Trail

****   Add a review
#39 of 111 mountain bike trails in West Virginia

To ride Red Run (extremely technical, difficult, wilderness type trail), leave the overlook and ride east of Rt.150 for 1/4 mile and take Gauley Mountain Trail for 3 miles to the junction of Red Run. Go left onto Red Run and make your way down the mountain through everything a mountain can throw at you and a little man made stuff tooo. Once at the bottom of the 2.5 mile Red Run, go left (actually straight through) onto Right Fork Trail. Follow Right Fork till you come to an intersection with a sign showing Right Fork Connector. Do not go straight through on the Connector, it hasn't been used for years and is extremely overgrown. Go right at this point and make a short steep climb into a beautiful meadow on top the mountain. The sign at that turn will have HSH150 on it, meaning Highland Scenic Highway 150. Ride for about 1/4 mile through the meadow which comes out directly across from Little Laurel Overlook.

If you want to add more to this ride, you can turn to the right up Tea Creek Mtn. Trail just before you reach the road. If you have a vehicle parked at Tea Creek Campground you can ride down Tea Creek Mtn. Trail and shuttle back to Little Laurel Overlook.
