Thanks to the generosity of the Cannonsburg Ski Area property owners, the public is allowed to use this trail for free most of the year. Once the snow flies the trails are groomed and a usage fee is required.

This map is out of date. There has been a lot of word done at the Ski Area and its much longer than the 7 miles listed here by at least 3+ if you include the triple loop and connectors. It's tough if your not in shape, but a great ride and really pretty and fun/lowing.

I've been told by the Cannonsburg staff that because of the sandy soil the trails are usually rideable the next day following rain. Or sometimes even later the same day.
