TRIP OVERVIEW

 

Mountain Bike Guided Tours


Bikes + West Virginia Mountains = Awesome

Mountain biking is the perfect addition to your West Virginia vacation. If you didn't already know it, there's a fat-tire paradise in southern West Virginia, and it's called the New and Gauley River canyons. With up to 1,000 feet of elevation and miles of mountain biking trails criss-crossing these canyons, you can pretty much take your pick.
