Ascent of Cheat Mountain through dense pine forest.

Description

Begin Stonecoal Trail from Shavers Fork Road and run uphill. Go around the gate and towards an opening in the tree canopy. Bear left here into an open flat area and aim for the back right corner where the trail starts.

Settle in for a long climb up an old railroad grade. Youll be running through dense canopy in a lush forest. After a few quick flat sections and more climbing, you'll be back cresting the top of the mountain.

From here the trail rolls slightly up and down through big pines and some slabby boulders before a series of long, gradual sections of actual downhill. Minus a few clusters of roots, these sections are super fun and travel through narrow corridors of pines all the way out to Cheat Mountain Road.
