A great ride through log jumps, rock gardens, climbs and drops into the ravine.

Description

Closed for park wide controlled hunts on website calendar. Dogs must be on leash.
Helmets are a must!! Parking fee required.
From the main entrance of Pocahontas State Park you'll enter the state park at the park office/kiosk. Please pay the parking fee. From here, proceed straight down State Park Rd. to the CCC museum.(Follow the Signs) From the CCC Museum Information board located by the bathrooms in front of the museum building, you'll go to the right. This puts you on the Fendley Station trail, which is a gravel road/trail that goes around the entire park. You'll follow this trail for a little over half a mile and you'll see the MTB trail entrance and Information board on the right hand side with maps and distances for all the trails.

There are three separate trails, one of which has a very advanced trail added to it for you adventurous types, and all share the same trailhead. These trails are well marked and are ONE WAY ONLY. Just follow the signs. The Morel Ravine Trail (Red), The Tall Oaks Trail (Blue) which has the Little W. VA trail addition and The Box Turtle Trail (Green).

The Morel Ravine Trail has a number of technical features but they are all very well spaced out. It has climbs, rock gardens, log jumps, and log rides. The climbs are not to hard but are a bit steep. The trail has many obstacles and is much more technical with drops that snake in and out of the ravine in a couple of places. This trail is rated for advanced riders. I recommend a bike with good suspension. Have fun and be safe.
