Description

Begin Stonecoal from Shavers Fork Road and pedal uphill. Ride around the gate and towards an opening in the tree canopy. Bear left here into an open flat area and aim for the back right corner where the trail starts.

Settle in for a long pull up an old railroad grade. Youll be pedaling through dense canopy in a lush forest. After a few quick flat sections and more climbing, youll be back cresting the top of the mountain.

From here the trail rolls slightly up and down through big pines and some slabby boulders before a series of long, gradual runs of actual downhill. Minus a few clusters of roots, these sections are super fun and travel through narrow corridors of pines all the way out to Cheat Mountain Road.

The trail was in very rough shape today!! I would not recommend anyone doing this until the trees are cut out of the paths and better drainage inparts — 2h 00m
