Description

The lower half of the Davis trail is part of the Allegheny Trail, which courses its way through the Monongahela National Forest. At the bottom, the Davis Trail starts next to a creek (Engine Run) in Blackwater Falls State Park and ascends to the Canaan Loop Road at the top of Canaan Mountain.

The lower part of the trail is a rhododendron tunnel (amazing when in bloom). The beginning is mostly flat and easygoing. Things start to change after you cross a small bridge to the other side of the creek. The trail ascends fairly steeply and then continues with a more moderate rate of rise on rocks that seem much like a streambed. About halfway, it reaches the Plantation Trail where a sign post also indicates the presence of a nearby shelter. The Allegheny now branches right with the Plantation Trail, while Davis continues its streambed-like ascent.

The trail finally crests out and becomes covered with gravel and sand. Shortly thereafter it terminates at the Loop Road. Run in the opposite direction, the Davis Trail is an exhilarating downhill ride featuring lots of doable rock gnar.

Not steep, but truly like a bouldery stream bed, beyond our intermediate skillsets as out-of-towners. Rocks & bog spots= mostly hike-a-bike for us. 2.7mi — 1h 00m

Rode a good portion of this today with my brother. Brutal. Some awesome downhill sections on the expert trail. Way too technical for me. Keep left! 11.7mi
