      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.

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

      This park is home to two WVMBA events, one for the enduro series and one for the XC series.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Shuttleable: YES
      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.
