Description

Newly built in 2019, this trail, ridden clockwise, was the race course for the West Virginia Interscholastic Cycling League's (NICA affiliate) Rally in the Valley.

It can be ridden in either direction and begins and ends below the Canaan Valley State Park Lodge in the parking lot for the pool, pump track & skating rink. It has short to moderate climbs at the beginning and then at the end on either side of the parking area, but then is generally level to rolling as it loops around the plateau above the park lodge. The trail is machine built and smooth with multiple bermed corners and switchbacks.

It intersects with other trails in the park such as Middle Ridge Trail, Club Run Trail, and Back Hollow Trail at various points. It is a fun trail that is great for families and for beginner/intermediate riders.

This trail is fast in some sections, slightly technical in others, and fun all around.
