One Way Only:
This is designated as a directional trail.
Though only 3.2 miles, this full descent is a workout for both your legs and upper body! Rocky, steep and lots of "texture".
Need to Know
in particular is a challenging trail with serious consequences. Consider wearing a full face helmet and also body armor.
Thunderstruck starts off with a BANG right from the beginning. If you don't like the look of the entrance, don't attempt this trail!
This is not a typical trail, but a mix of the vision of 5 different world-class IMBA builders: Josh C., Joey K., Chris O., Tyler and Diddy. Each section has their feel.
The trail starts machine-built, transitions to narrow, rough hand-built, and then finishes with machine-built. As you descend, the difficulty goes down as well, which you'll appreciate since your arms and legs will be burning!
History & Background
This trail is built to honor the CCC heritage of Cacapon and we used the ACC (Appalachian Conservation Corps) to hand build large portions of the trail. Thunderstruck was also built using RTP funds from WV DOT!
