Local Info

CLOSED until Jan 1, 2020

The Big Bear Lake Trail Center is quickly becoming known as the hot spot for classic east coast singletrack. Years of trail development, by experienced mountain bikers, have created a trail system that will have you grinning ear to ear. The terrain has everything to offer; gradual climbs, large embedded rocks, tight slaloms, challenging rock gardens, and off the saddle downhills. Almost 50 miles of trail wind through knee-deep ferns, soft needle pine plantations, and groves of mountain laurel. Riders of all ages and abilities will find trails to fit their individual riding skills and need for adrenaline.

Visiting Tips

Trail fee is $10/day or $30 for a season pass. Season passes can be purchased at the main entrance or online at BikeReg.com (search Big Bear WV merchandise). Open from Jan 1 through Oct 31 each year.
