“A forest road tour of the Cheat Mountain area.”— Leslie Kehmeier
This has been hidden from our maps to prevent overlap with existing trails, or because our research has found there is no legal access.
Turn right on Yokum Run and continue descending towards the Shavers Fork River. Stay right at the bottom and pedal around the nose of a hill into the next drainage, Crouch Run.
From here, you'll have an extended climb back to Cheat Mountain Rd. Turn left at the top and return to the start of the ride.
Overall, the route is hard-packed gravel road through the forest.
