Mountain Biking River Trail

****   Add a review
#27 of 109 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#3,262 in the world

The trail is almost all singletrack with just a few small rock gardens that may offer a challenge. It follows the river very closely in spots. Be careful, you might fall into the river! Most of it is rolling and flat terrain with an uphill section depending on which way you ride it.

Getting there
Travel to Barboursville Park and follow the paved road until you see the lake. From the parking lot go through or around the gate that leads onto the fine-gravel lake path. This path isn't made for bikers, so stay off to the side. Follow it to the corner of the lake away from the parking lot and bear left and downward onto a small dirt road. Immediately after turning left watch for the River Trail on your right. It's singletrack pretty much the rest of the way. I found a map online at http://www.bikebfat.com/bville.greenways.JPG Check it out.
