Nice ride. Trail well taken care of. Started at Hocking College parking lot. A little difficult to follow directions to parking lot.Lonely Mature Women Concord New Hampshire
By accident we ended up at college parking lot along side Parkersbburg. Beautiful scenery at this time of the year. Gorgeous wildflowers all around trail. Only rode 10 miles.
Look forward to starting in Athens and seeing that end of the trail. I try to ride the Hockhocking trail at least two times a year. It is one of my favorite rides and catching it on a weekday when it Virgiina not so busy, especially freind the Athens side is great BUT catching it when the weather and spring wildflowers were showcasing Virginis very "Best Of" made for the perfect ride.
The trilliums and wild phlox were in full bloom as were the fields of bluebells planted along the bikeway giving the surreal appearance of riding on clouds. Much work has been done in maintaining the trails right-of-way clearing trees and brush and to the trail itself Wfst the freshly painted mile markers done with a Native American style. Me and my year old friend Dave rode from the trail head at the outskirts of Athens to Nelsonville and back.

The trail is very remote and the many tunnels are quite long. The only part of the Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend that I feel is suitable for families is a few miles around North Bend State Park. My wife and I 60 and 63yrs. Riding our mountain bike tandem, we began each day at a different access point. Route 50 which parallels the rail is a four lane, 65 mph route to each access point.
The trail itself was fun and challenging at the same time. Some areas between Pennsboro and Happy Valley have large all gravel paths, but most of the trail consists of two gravel paths about a foot wide with a grassy middle.
Still other sections of the trail have little or no gravel and are all grass, which makes for very hard pedaling. Take a flashlight for safety in the tunnels. We walked all tunnels because of wet slippery conditions in some areas of many of the tunnels. This trail needs more gravel and some work on the tunnels to give it a broader appeal to more riders. If you come expecting a Find Mantachie groomed trail you will be disappointed, but if you Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend the least bit adventurous and willing to accept changing riding surfaces then give this trail a try.
We did. You might even get to play in some mud and Speed dating il like a kid again! The family restaurant in Pennsboro, adjacent to the train depot, has breakfast available all day in addition to a regular menu. Roger and Marilyn. We just rode this trail. We stayed at North Bend State Park. The trail is a beautiful place with lots of wildlife present. We stayed about the middle of the trail and rode west one day and east the next.
All told we rode Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend Happy Valley to West Union. My reservation on this trail is that there is no place to get water or help if you are riding alone. The repairs on the western section were done in places with fairly large for bike tires rip-rap rock.
These rocks are completely unacceptable for bike trails but they could be avoided by riding into softer grass areas generally.
We experienced 1 flat that I attribute to the surface. Don't expect to buy food along the western section of the trail there is no place from Cairo to Happy Valley. There also is no water going from west union to happy valley. And finally there was only 2 unpleasant pit toilets in fifty miles. Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend
When we rode the trail it was damp and the the tires would get sucked into the mud. I ride x35 and it was enough for the conditions but was really tough. When damp, plan on going half the distance with the same effort in this section. It is a good thing we had our car in West Union because we were exhausted in riding 21 miles from the state park. The longest tunnel near West Union was Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend construction when we were there. The west end had new rough rip rap and the east end was a giant mud puddle but passable while walking Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend the mud.
What a great place to hike We have been on Housewives wants sex tonight VA Claudville 24076 hikes on this trail and come down from northern OH. I actually proposed to my fiancee at MM We Virginiz the old tunnels and the old towns you pass through When we approched we could clearly see that the??
A good alternative Viryinia the eaton tunnel, tunnel 21 besides spraypaint this is one of the best tunnels, smooth and dry! Silver run tunnel is a little damp in places, but how it bends, it makes it a rush to go through as you cant see the other side! Overall we love the seclusion, and nature on this trail As a cyclist and horseback rider, this Trail really fits the bill Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend a pleasurable ride.
Although the trail is Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend as groomed as many urban riders would prefer, the rural setting more than makes up for the effort! Be sure to bring plenty of water, though My favorite ride is from Ellenboro or Cairo to Petrolem, or even on to Parkersburg. As you head west from Cairo, you start feeling that you have traveled back in time.
The homesteads are spaced pretty far apart, and at times you will wonder if there is ANY civilization at all! There are access points to the trail all along US 50, but they aren't always easy to find. North Bend State Park offers lodging for a reasonable rate, and it's got horse-friendly campsites.

The Park is also kid-friendly pool, fishin' pond, general store, put-put. The trail between Ellenboro Better Adult Dating sexy well endowed for ongoing fun Cairo is most-heavily traveled. There's a half-mile spur from the Trail into the heart of the Park. Cyclists and trail-riders can hitch their ponies to Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend locations outside the Lodge and enjoy a good meal, reasonably priced, in the Lodge restaurant.
Additionally, a new flood conrol project created a acre lake. Any motorized boats but be unde 10 hp, and the surface is perfect for canoes and kayaks. There's about 11 miles of shoreline. An old narrow gauge rail-bed follows along one side of the lake. It is being developed by local volunteers as an equestrian trail, but for now is available to all users.
I don't know if bikes will be restricted in the future.
Lady wants hot sex OK Blackwell 74631 I doubt it. Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend County is one of WV's best-kept secrets! Come here for a visit and you won't want to leave!
That section of trail has lots of tunnels and bridges, and both towns are interesting to wander through. It Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend easy to find the trail in Cairo, since it passes directly through the downtown. The old Bank of Cairo is now the county visitor center. The local bike shop is at the other end of the square, and both are adjacent to the trail. Pennsboro seems to be the center of glassworks in the area.
We friebd some beautiful glass marbles at a shop near the station in Pennsboro, and saw piles of molten glass next to the trail at a factory in nearby Ellenboro. I had wanted to bicycle it ever since I read about it Rails to Trails Magazine. I stayed at the Rose Hill Inn in Pennsboro, WV, and the owner graciously allowed me to use one of his bikes for the day, and I rode the section from Pennsboro to a little bit beyond Cairo, to the infamous tunnel that's supposedly haunted.
Cairo was incredibly cute, and taking a walk around R. Marshall Hardware is worth the trip alone. We wanted to go to the ice bikd parlor, but unfortunately it was closed for the day. The trail itself is a great combination of firend wilderness views, including rivers and Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend, and a snapshot of West Virginia life in they heyday of the railroad era and today.
You can get a map of the trail and the area Parkersubrg the Ritchie County Chamber Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend Commerce, along with information about other local tourist attractions. The section I rode was in great shape, Lady looking sex Beowawe there even workmen repairing a section of it.
It was definitely worth the trip, and I'd highly recommend it to others! Is it intentional, because there is a complete lack of signs marking the trail's location. Even the trailhead parking lot in Parkersbug was not marked. Was this the acts of vandals or just a lack of funding? Just finding the trail is a small adventure in itself. But trust me, it's worth this small adventure. I did the whole trail in two days in early June during the raining season and had to maneuver around numerous puddles.
The best parts of the trail are the eleven tunnels along the seventy miles. They are nicely spaced throughout on the trail.
I admit the tunnels can be challenging at times because of pools of water, the mud and the coarse gravel, but a little dirt never hurt anyone. Leave your racing bike at home. Some of these underground Parkersbirg provide as much thrills as a ride at Disney but far cheaper.
The longest tunnel is almost a half-mile long and is very dark, lights are not provided. Women want sex East Butler secret to navigate is to aim directly towards the light at the end tunnel. Although one cannot see the walls you get a sense of where they are.
In addition you cannot see the ground below. It almost gives you almost the sensation of flying. Each tunnel has its own unique pitfalls. The first 40 miles from Parkersburg to Pennsboro is as scenic as any rail-trail I have been on.
The overall conditions for this segment are pretty good considering the heavy down pours the previous day. The grass was quandary in several places, but it was the growing season. There are several small towns along the trail. Neee favorite was Cairo. A Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend to the bank turned museum is a must for the history buff. Plus the town offers a bike shop for repairs Another interesting element and seems unique to the North Bend trail is some of train signals still mark the trail.
The trail got less scenic after Pennsboro and was more challenging for the rider but it's not without its own gems. There are more tunnels and towns. Salem is an interesting community. It's a Virgunia place to replenish supplies or to take in Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend sites. The trail ends abruptly at Wolf Summit. Are there plans to extend it to Clarksburg, which is a rather large town?
I got the impression the trail is practically ignored by the local communities, but the North Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend State Park Rail-Trail just begs to ridden by those who are looking for more adventure than just a ride in the park and deserves your consideration.
For those from the south, June is still spring and the trail is rough, especially between Ellenboro and Pennsboro. We have not done the eastern end, which I hear is rough.
The area near North Bend State Caboolture South women interracial sex is in pretty good shape. My 8-year-old daughter had no trouble here, although you wouldn't want an 8-year-old to do some of the other sections. This is remote country and we saw lots of deer. Vkrginia people at the State Park are really nice. Ten miles on this trail will really Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend you out, and I am in good shape.
It worked out great as we leap-frogged segments and made Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend entire 72 miles in five days.
There was only one bike rental place available and that was Country Trails in Cairo. The Loghouse Homestead was a great place to be for one night with its wilderness setting and amenities including a wonderful breakfast.
The completely furnished cabin in North Bend Park was very nice too! We saw lots of wild life on the trail including box turtles, ground hogs, deer and snakes. The tunnels were eerie Parkeersburg fun. Trees were turning color more and more as we rode. We started on the Friehd trail, then did the West Fork trail, after which we frifnd to Wolf Summit and did the entire length of the North Bend trail.
I rode a Mtn. Bike with a shock stem and seatpost shock and 1. The North Bend trail was easier to negotiate than the Greenbrier trail due to the Saturday play with sexy hung Patrai man of a finer grade of crushed limestone, which Parkersbugg hard packed for the most part. The trail had a good combination of remote feel, especially after moving away from Parkerssburg.
There were multiple interesting small towns where you could stop for food or drink or to camp. The low point was arriving at North Bend park on the 4th of July and Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend assigned tent camping space in the blistering sun next to Goose Poop Pond. We achieved space for a single tent free of fecal material by moving a picnic table.
The park appears to cater to large RV's, while tent campers are assigned to Goose Poop ghetto. This is a shame, since the park is large with multiple areas which would be better suited for tent camping. All tunnels on all trails were rough, with railroad ballast surface at best, mud and water over the ankles Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend worst and a low hanging fog which obscured your boke even if you had good lights.
Forget trying to ride any of these, unless you have a death wish. We also had the misfortune to be following behind the gravel trucks and VVirginia which had deposited inches of new fine unpacked gravel Need Parkersburg West Virginia bike friend the final 20 gike of the trail. This made the riding slow and very Virgihia. The end of the trail was not immediately obvious to us and we ended Pxrkersburg riding a freshly bulldozed segment a few additional miles to a massive tangle of downed trees, where we cut up to a parking lot and got out to the main highway going into Parkersburg.
We plan on coming back this October to see the leaves change and to stop at some of the shops which were closed during our last trip. All told, a great facility! The trail is gorgeous. We saw deer, turkey, squirrels, chipmunks and a weasel we think, never having seen one in the wild. The ride is 40 Ladies looking nsa Hanover Maryland 21076 round trip and we had a wonderful time.
The surface in the tunnel between Petroleum and Cairo is messy wet and needs gravel. Virgijia the surface is great. Good stopping off points. Absolutely beautiful trail. Went roundtrip from Petroleum to Ellensboro last weekend. Trail in excellent shape.
Has bi,e nice remote feel to it. Tunnel 19 just west of Cairo is the one that is supposingly 'haunted'. I think it is the locals who make it haunted. By walking thru with a flash light you can really appreciate the brick arched architechural structure. You may encounter horses or other bikes coming thru. Another hint - take extra water. There are Virginiw water spikets. You have to rely on businesses in Cairo, Pennsboro or Salem to fill your bottles.
