Originally an old road, this trail has reverted mostly back to rolling grade singletrack now. The old Brooklyn Mine site is the real reason to ride this trail, but the occasional New River Gorge views don't hurt.

CAUTION: This is one of the few trails in the area frequently used by equestrians.

Access Info

To reach the trailhead from Route 19, follow Route 16 south through the town of Fayetteville. Take a left on Gateway Road (sign indicates Kaymoor and Cunard). Follow Gatewood Road for 4.6 miles and turn left at the sign for Cunard. Go 1.8 miles and turn left at both of the signs indicating Cunard River Access Road. The parking area is just past the trailhead, located 0.5 miles further on the right.
