    Fernow Experimental Forest - Parsons WV Loop

    Time for another bike loop.

    The Fernow Experimental Forest - Parson Loop is a 19 mile bike loop that takes you through a beautiful and uniquely managed woodland where you'll bike up one mountain, pass along the edge of the Otter Creek Wilderness then coast down a different mountain. You'll also bike on part of the Allegheny Highlands Trail, pass within sight of four different rivers and test your luck on a suspension footbridge. Ride surface is pavement, rail-trail, Forest Road and dual track. Max elevation change is 1045 Ft.



    Fernow is pronounced as FUR'-No.

    Just drove through Parsons today. I like the Shingletree area, and think I may have been on the section of ths loop near Hendricks, albeit on a ride that originated in Thomas. You do a nice job with the pic selection to show the story and feel of the area/ride. Very nice pages!

    Maybe Davis will take us on another "stupidest ride ever" and show us this trail after one million miles on the pavement

    The stupidest part of that whole day was stopping at Moutain State Brewing for four beers when we still had several miles left to pedal. That was brilliant.
