      Valley Falls State Park is more well known to kayakers than mountain bikers but that is changing. Since 2015, 4 new "enduro" style trails have been added to the park for more gravity oriented runs but still suits a modern trail bike rather than a DH bike. There is an excellent opportunity for shuttling the majority of the park, especially the enduro trails, when you really want to rack up some vertical descending.

      Weather - Park ride greats whether its dry or super wet out. This place drains well.

      Park Closes at Dark - No camping available on site but camping is close at Tygart Valley Lake

      This park is home to a West Virginia Enduro series stop.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES
      Land Status: State Park
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      The main parking lot down by the falls provides easy access to the trail system. Also parking up by the ranger station at the entrance of the park, and parking at the intersection of Deer Trail/Red Cardinal along the main access road.
