trails running from Bakers Ridge Road down to West Run with a whole lot of different rides you can string together and spend a hours without riding the same trail. some nice natural Rock formations and other features to challenge most.

WVU RUSH   Cross Country Rider [Jul 01, 2009]

Trail starts with a series of creek crossing to a moderate uphill to the left. Stay to the left on the way up. Until the trail comes to a Y. At the Y take a left, about 200 hundred yards on your left there is a fairly steep drop in. After you drop in you will be on a single track that starts with ~1.5mi easy climp with mutiple uphill log crossings. Once you reach the top, it is a nice decent for 2~3 miles. With a lot more tree crossing, and a small techical rock garden. The trail will end up on the wide road that you climbed to get to the drop in. One of the best part of the day is the very fast downhill back to West Run.

Great trail for Mo-town locals. It is basically in town and easy to get to for a quick ride. Parking is a little bit of a mess. Good fun for intermediate riders.
The area and trails are not marked, but that is what I find nice about it. Go explore and find your own routes, after a couple rides there you will figure it out.

Best trail in Morgantown, has the potential to be as hard or easy as you would like. There are lots of little trails off the main route, you can ride many times and never take the same routes. Many drop-offs and jumps. The only downside is that there are many downed trees on some of the trails, some are jumpable, but many are not. Just look for paths others have made around the big logs and be prepared to jump off you bike and carry at times! Also there aren't any trial markers and the sign to the entrance isn't their any longer, just look for the blue and gold gates off of West Run Road, like someone else said turn right at the bottom of the hill onto West Run (not left).

Bakers is nice intermediate ground. The perfect place to go big ring it for an afternoon. I go to school at WVU and ride on the cycling team there and bakers is a nice place to hit up after class. Lots of singletrack that's relatively flat with a few technical sections here or there to keep things interesting, and the only climb is to get up to the trialhead. The place never dries out so be prepared to get a little dirty.

The trail is not marked and I was riding alone and I hardly found 5 miles, let alone the possible 10 miles of this trail. Most of the time I was trying to be careful not to stray into private lands. Still, this place has a lot of potential. 3 chillis from me because it is not very friendly for someone from out of town (I'm from lower Michigan, check out the well maintained trails by MMBA if you happen to be in the area).

I wanted to correct an error in Ralph's directions. At the bottom of the hill at the stop sign turn right, not left. Go down 2 or 3 tenths of a mile and look for the blue University sign on the left marking the entrance to the trail.
I prefer the single track trails in this area to those at Cooper's Rock State Park because they're a lot less rocky on the steep sections. The surface of the main trail is crushed rolled stone which can be ridden very fast. Lots of standing mud puddles, even in dry weather.

It's starts off with a mild uphill and goes into some more uphill. Once you've gotten your workout going up and you're at the top then there are tons of places to go and they're semi-flat and a lot of fun. Mostly single track trails and coming down is the best.
