Long Point Trail (New River Area) - Trail, Fayetteville, Virginia

Long Point Trail (New River Area) - Trail, Fayetteville, Virginia

DESCRIPTION

Mostly small hills at beginning of ridge with some pretty nice climbs and drops spaced out evenly. Ride double track trail on the ridge until you notice the old log crossing trail and steep drop off afterwards , get ready this is where it gets hairy. Follow single track trail unto some nice sand stone drop offs and twisting rhododendron "tunnels" :::STEEP:::: take it easy cuz' you'll want to fly here but you could easily sail off the ridge into oblivion. Ride until the fresh air hits your nose and BOOM you in the Center of the New River Gorge looking straight out at the World's Largest Single Span Arch Bridge. Amazing Beauty!! You'll feel like a Freebird!! PPsssst.. Secret "spot" for those who are really extreme there is a ledge on the left face of cliff (Wolf Creek Side)that you can climb down to the lower level of Long Point..look for the natural fireplace in the corner beside stone bench and see where I used to hang out with the girlies in high school HEHE it's kinda hard to find but look hard and be careful..there are some pine trees that act as ladders so look for them on the left edge.. Nice Trail!!! Amazing reward!!! (trail also has connector with Kaymoor Mines trail...turn left Down the ridge)

Hey Brian, you strike me as the tough on the phone type.

I started out by stopping at Ridge Riders in Fayetteville and getting the local scoop on the trails and a free map. I grew up and graduated Fayetteville H.S. and moved away, a lot has changed and the area is a tourist meca, some of the trails are closed to bikers and as far as I'm concerned that's ok. If you go ask about which trails are closed. I started out at Fayetteville Town Park and rode a small loop to Kaymore Top, and looped back to Fayetteville on Branch Trail, its a 6 mile loop, single track and VERY tight, I had a nice little down hill on the way back about a half mile long. Its not technical, but fun, a few small climbs, and a nice gradual down hill. If your a technical rider with newbies, its perfect.

Start out at the Fayetteville Town park, behind the ball field.

Being a local mountain biker here in Fayetteville, it pisses me off to no end, that actions like Bryan's closed this trail 10 years ago to bikers. It is an excellent hiking trail, but if you are riding it, you are just hurting future plans for this area. It was in the works that a new trail was to cross the Long Point Trail, but due to some people that can't follow simple Federal rules, this will not be allowed...Thanks Bryan!!

Not the Long Point Trail. It's illegal and you'll get fined!

If you had the balls to include your email adddress i might give you some respect. but since you have no balls I will just say this. i grew up in fayetteville wv and i have rode the long point trail 15 to 10 years ago when a suspension bike was unheard of. I know a few Chris's that ride and I have pin pointed who I think you are. I will beat you so bad when I see you that you won't even know what hit you. i would suggest you watch your back and next time think twice before you blast someone on the net/ especially when you don't know who it is. Remember Fayetteville is a very small town you idiot. Furthermore I had no idea this trail was off limits cuz i havent rode it in 8 years. I feel sorry for you because you are so dumb and also I feel sorry for you because you don't know who I am. Lookout. Bryan

Short trail, but the end result is really nice. Long point ends in one mamma of a cliff. Bring a camera.

Some other reviewers posted somthing about federal law prohibiting bikes. I don't think that is true. After I finished, I met a park ranger in the new parking lot they just made. He never said anything about my bike. He did recommened some rafting venues, which is a different story all together.

I recommend this trail, but it's so short, you might want to sling the bike and just hike it instead.
