Main access to Middle Ridge Trail and other trails off of Middle Ridge Rd.

Jack Hoblitzell

Description

Starting from the parking lot at the front of Kanawha State Forest, travel out the paved road toward the Kanawha State Forest shooting range. Turn right onto Middle Ridge Road (Forest Rd. 801). Ride around the gate. This is a dirt road that travels up to the ridge top.

The climb up is approximately 1.4 miles at an average grade of 6.5%. Middle Ridge Road is the main access to numerous singletrack trails on top, including Middle Ridge Trial and others that drop back down to the valley floor, such as Mossy Rock, Pole Cat, Ballard, Teaberry Rock, Blackbear, and Johnson Hollow.

This trail segment ends at the beginning of Middle Ridge Trail, but Middle Ridge Road can be ridden all the way to the rear of the forest.
