This is officially another piece of the Fayetteville Trail, but many people think of it separate. It's a wild ride down to the New River Gorge and a beast of a climb coming up. Many people choose to ride down Chicken Wire and come up either Fayette Station Rd or Craig Branch Trail.

Access Info

Park at the Fayetteville Town Park or ride the Fayetteville Trail over from the main Arrowhead Trail system.
