Mountain Biking in West Virginia
A Great Adventure for the Entire Family!
|Mountain biking in West Virginia is not just for the extreme rider. There are trails for the entire family. Bring your own equipment or rent it here. There are several mountain biking outfitters in the area offering great equipment at reasonable prices.
Many outfitters also offer guided tours customized to your needs and experience level. The guided tours will help you take in more of the interesting historical and cultural sites of the area with some background and maybe a few tales as told by your guide. Tours along the rim of the New River Gorge are magnificent. Full day tours usually include a catered picnic lunch served along the banks of the New River. Along with spectacular scenery, you’ll see all types of wildlife, historic mining communities and complexes, fabulous foliage, and roaring rapids.
Of course, if your the kind of person that enjoys going “where no man has gone before,” there’s plenty of room for that too. You can find some of the most extreme mountain biking terrain in the east a short distance from your cabin.
If you’re into competitive realms of mountain biking, follow the link at the bottom of the page for a West Virginia Mountain Biking Association.
