Overview

**Trails are now OPEN for 2024**

The Big Bear Lake Trail Center is a privately owned trail system in northern West Virginia. 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. The Big Bear Lake Trail Center is the place to bring the entire family to experience mountain biking at its best.
