Valley Falls

Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 9

The trails have all skill types pending on how fast you want to take the turns and downhill parts. Starting at the parking area and riding up the road and almost out out of the park take a right and fallow the Red Fox trail for a great downhill run. Fallow the river and ride to the far parking lot, take the fireroad and fallow the trails back to the right and to the top of the hill, then take the Red Fox trail for a another downhill blast. There are many other trails so get a trail map, and enjoy. I always found the Rangers to be very helpful with trail information.

Take Downtown Fairmont exit off I79, look for signs to Valley Falls State Park. Its a few miles off of 79 but well worth the drive.

Summary:
great trail system for begginer to intermediate riders into downhill and more intense cross country

Recommended Route:
if you want a good "beginner" ride take red fox but go left when you see the sign that says to road. Also for a good downhill run or a hard core XC run take wild turkey trail (behind rangers house at park entrance) and then take rocky trail to the bottom. wild turkey has a very long steep climb at trail head for about a mile but practically all down hill from there. go left at bottom of rocky to get to the parking lot and falls. I would recomend having someone who doesnt ride go along to take a car to the bottom because most trails start on top at gate and trust me you dont want to climb out! take a look at the falls also some of the boulders are legal to drop!

Summary:
I raced there earlier this year. The course was an 8 mile lap, we did three. Lots of fun, smooth, fast, singletrack.

Summary:
valley falls need more and longer trails. its good for riders with little endurance who ride one lap, but it lacks the distance and variety to prevent boredom. to ride any distance you have to ride the same trails over and over and over and over...(got the idea?) i can't believe that this trail system has the high ratings that its been given (injustice).

Recommended Route:
none in particular
