Family Friendly 5' wide and built for beginners but fun for advanced riders with great flow and A-lines.

Need to Know

If it has been raining heavily for a period of time, as well as during Freeze-Thaw cycles, please don't ride on the trail and damage this beautiful machine built tread.


This trail starts and ends at the base of the mountain near the Nature Center and lower lake on Campfire Circle road. Rock & Roll forms a 2.2-mile figure 8 trail with the very short connector trail Crossroad. The inner loop is 1.2 miles and climbs a more gentle 89'. The outer loop is a slightly more challenging 1.0-mile loop that climbs 113'. The Crossroad connector enables multiple options for riding the trail: inner loop, outer loop, full loop, figure 8, etc.

The trail itself is the first machine-built and professionally designed trail at Cacapon. It is built so that beginners can ride and enjoy while progressing their skills while still being fun for advanced riders. The tread is a compacted 5' wide trail with some built rock water crossings. The turns are bermed for railing and carrying speed and the tread rolls along for some fun 0-G rollers where you can catch air if you want to.

Riding the full loop clockwise makes for a more gentle climb in the beginning, but has a steeper climb toward the end of the outer loop. The descent is then flowing and consistent almost all the way back to the bottom. Riding counter-clockwise is a bit steeper in the beginning, but then has a more gentle climb on the outer loop. The easiest climb is to start riding clockwise, take the Crossroad connector, and then continue on the outer loop riding counter clockwise. Regardless of the direction, this trail has some rocks at drain crossings, and it rolls really well!

Be sure to look for all of the A-Lines hidden on the trail... rock roll-overs, jumps, full rock lines and other fun hidden gems!

Rock & Roll accesses Start Me Up to provide access on uphill to the Batt Picnic Area and mountain bike hub.
