    Can you name these WV trails ?

    Just thought this might be interesting. Lets see how many singletrack
    junkies we have out there that can recognize the trail by the pictures
    below and tell us the trail name and the area it is in. Just send me a PM
    with your answers and we'll see who gets the most correct. I'll post any
    responses next weekend and let you know who scores the highest. I've
    used pictures that should be easily recognizable for those who have ridden
    there. Again, trail name and location. Let's see how many trails you know
    well. I'll give everyone a start, Example: Trail #1, Cow Pasture Trail,
    Cranberry Glades or Kennison Mtn area. Winner will receive the WV
    Singletrack Junkie Award (paper certificate emailed to you if you really
    want one).









































    Come on let's have some fun with this.

    Well, I do know #'s 2 and 20, but won't spoil it for anyone else.

    #'s 9 and 18 are at Teacreek, right?

    #'s 3 and 14 look like they're there in Davis.

    The rest are a mystery to me.

    Please remember to send your responses via PM message. And remember, Trail Name
    is worth a point and location is worth another.

    repoman knows the trails he has ridden pretty well. He was the first to get some points.

    Crashedandburned may have some points but I'll let him know about them in a PM.

    I have the answers typed up and I'll shoot to everyone when this is done next weekend.
    Thanks for the replies.

    OK, I think I got a shot at winning this. I'm about 100% sure of 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16 & 18. Pretty sure about 11 & 19 as well. I'll send my guesses in after I look at these some more.

    These are ALL in WV, right? I mean one of them looks exactly like Douthat, but ya know, that's in VA.

    Yep, all in West Virginia. You know you are the one that started all this madness with
    that Jeopardy comment in the other post . Thanks for the spark.... I'll be watching
    for your reply.

    Not sure of the trails names, but I know the little girl in the pictures name is Malibu. Is that worth bonus points?

    Tips of the week !

    There may be several pictures in the same County and same area, however there is
    only one picture of each trail. The Counties are listed below in the order of the most
    pictures, ie Pocahontas County accounts for more pictures than any other, however I
    will not say how many. This should help you determine where they are not from .
    Keep those answers coming.


    Pocahontas County
    Tucker County
    Pendleton County
    Kanawha County
    Preston County
    Roane County
    Wood County
    Monongalia County

    Wow, these must have been harder than I thought. Guess I'll just have to help out some more since tomorrow is Friday and the weekend grows near. These are my last tips, but almost everyone should get them now with the help of these matching numbered riddles.

    # 1 I didn't see any cattle.
    # 2 But we're nowhere near Davis, WV.
    # 3 We really tore up the rim on this one.
    # 4 Could have sworn there was a number 47 or 48 on that bear we saw.
    # 5 We took a licking on this climb X 2.
    # 6 You can Park on both ends of this one.
    # 7 Chuck built a nice trail around this pond.
    # 8 Judy told us to get a little spring in our step.
    # 9 Man ! What a gauley.
    # 10 But I didn't see the Moon.
    # 11 Is that Ken or his son on the mountian?
    # 12 Not sure if we were north or south of the border.
    # 13 Didn't land on the moon, just passed on by.
    # 14 Bet cotton wouldn't grow on this one.
    # 15 Almost had to prop up that big rock.
    # 16 Funny I didn't see any berries at all.
    # 17 Who doo what?
    # 18 This crossing was hard on the shoals of my shoes.
    # 19 Didn't see any cages but saw lots of bear track.
    # 20 Be careful, there could be rattlesnakes about.

    Ok, that's all. The tail of the trails coming soon.
