    North Bend Park, WV

    I see where the WVMBA is having a race there next year. Anyone rode there and
    what's it like out there?

    I've been there and as far as I know it's just like forty miles of rail trail, no single track. Don't get me wrong it's a nice place to ride, there are tunnels and small railroad towns along the way. They also have camping and all the facilities,but as of the last time I was there(about a year and a half ago) there was no single track or anything of that nature. Let me know if you find out other wise.

    Info:

    The North Bend Superintendent is friends with Kanawha State Forest's superintendent, I heard them discussing almost a year ago about how they're going to be building a trail system in North Bend. I camped there about 2 years ago and rode some singletack. Now, it wasn't much (probably not even 2 miles). I know they have been building trail for a while. Hope this helps.

    There is a bunch of singletrack there that has been opened up to mountain
    biking. I believe all the hiking trails are now able to be ridden. Several of the
    folks from the River Valley Mountain Bike Association have been riding there
    and the plans are for us to assist WVMBA with it as well as Mountwood. We
    are going to have a few work days over there to plan out the course. I've
    been told by those who have ridden there, Greg Moore included, that the trails
    are awesome. I'll talk to Greg and see if I can get some more info for everyone.

    The River Valley Mountain Bike Association's monthly meeting is this monday
    so I'll be taking a copy of the map in this link along. Maybe I can get Greg
    Moore to show me what he is looking at for the North Bend Challange. If he'll
    pass on his idea for a course I'll put it on here. This one shows many of the
    trails, even the newer lake trail.
