Mountain Biking Valley Falls Trail System

****   Add a review
#30 of 109 mountain bike trails in West Virginia
#3,441 in the world

This trail system is in the Valley Falls State Park. All trails are clearly marked and well traveled. Most trails are old logging/ forest service roads and are constructed with crushed stone bed. Trails are crossed with mountain run-off, and have occasional breakdown of trail surface. There are approxiametly 7 trails thoughout the park. 6 of these trails make a loop from the parking lot. The main outter trail, Rhodadendren Trail, has 5 trails that lead off and criss-cross the park. All trails lead to Rhodadendren Trail or to the main park road. The Deer trail is the only trail that travels in the opposite direction, and forms its own loop.

The majority of trails are easy to moderate. Only the Red Rock Trail would be considered difficult/ expert (and the only single track in the park). This is not to say that you will not experience short but steep climbs and descents along any of the trails. The provided trail map gives excellent detailed descriptions of each trail.

The main parking area has a playground, picnic shelters, bathrooms and vending machines. A payphone is also available at the restrooms. Cell phone service is poor at best.

The park indicates that it closes at sundown and ANY car in the park will be towed after closing!

There are also several falls along the Tygret River that are accessible via walking/ riding trails near the main parking area.
