An urban network of rails right in downtown Morgantown, White Park features short trails that can be pieced together to form longer rides. The trails are fast and flowing with very few obstacles. Follow the “Blue Loop” until you get acquainted with the flow of the trails.
A fun in-town alternative to White Park with a little more gradient and difficulty, Baker’s Ridge is owned by West Virginia University. A network of interconnected trails is best enjoyed by riding up the access road to explore the ridgetop, before selecting one of many trails back down to the parking lot.
Westover Park Loop is a 1.7 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Morgantown, West Virginia and is beginner mountain biking loop, but good for all skill levels. Great for adults or kids who can bike well on pavement/gravel and are ready to try mountain biking. Built by Appalachian Dirt for Westover City Park, the trail’s prevailing slope is just under 5% with many beginner skills features – lots of chances to practice 12-18″ rollers and fairly tight insloped berms. The trail is primarily used for hiking and mountain biking. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash.
Not for noobs or the faint-of-heart, bone rattling speed is the name of the game on this course. Setting shuttle beforehand is recommended but not necessary if you don’t mind a little hike-a-bike to get back out of the canyon. Be sure to check out the vistas at the overlook and the cool iron furnace at the end of the 2nd stage.
We love our Mon River Rail-Trails, and though not explicitly MTB-fare, the Decker’s Creek Trail is beautiful as it runs alongside the bold stream for which it is named, and is easily accessible from town with a nice gradient as you climb into the hills. For a quick jaunt after work, or when White Park is too wet to ride, the Decker’s Creek Trail is always there for you in a pinch.
More coming soon!
