Scenic driving

The first third or so of the trail off of 41N is a bit rocky and not suitable for regular cars but any decent suv or truck shouldn't have too much of a problem at all. The last half is mostly downhill and a softer surface. It hugs the river the whole time and has some great views especially when the leaves are off the trees. It's a great way to recharge and keep exploring after the morning hikes.

Trail is open again. We went early this morning, parts of it were snowy and icy but still fine. Lots of joggers this morning though so if you go just be careful since there may be some people jogging on it.

As of now, this route is closed due to a landslide. I look forward to trying it soon once it has been cleared. For more info check the New River Gorge “Alerts” page.

Road itself is very easy, at least in October, we had two rain storms this week and no mud really, it’s worth going for the views though, all the mountain creeks and waterfalls are gorgeous! Took a stock trd tundra and no issues.

Easy trail. You could take a 2 wheel drive Ford Ranger down this trail. I did see a Ford Focus broke down on the trail the other day. It looks like they bottomed out and busted their oil pan. LOL there are a couple of rock slides and downed trees that make the path a little narrow here and there but I was able to take my full size lifted Chevy Silverado the entire length of the trail with no problem. very Scenic ride.

Great beginner trail for our Jeep as we didn’t want to get technical or scratches.

Took this trail in my truck hoping to find some tent camping sites along it, but no such luck. The trail itself is easy-moderate and can be done in a standard 2WD sedan.

Northern half is a well maintained gravel road. Southern half has some more dips and holes. Enjoyable.

Trail was pretty and we had alot of fun driving it. But it is no where near moderate. I would call it easy all day. Its been raining alot here lately and it was pretty wet in spots. But nowhere was is really muddy. Just standing water a few inches deep. Never even thought about using 4wd and never even spun one time. Trail was never tight or hard to navigate like some reviews describe. People live about halfway down it and there was a ford mustang in one driveway just to emphasize how easy this road is to drive.

OHV/Off-road drivingMuddyRocky

Well deserving of the five star review and the difficulty rating. A couple of butt puckering spots but so worth it all for the views. One little vertical climb that we had to get out of the Jeep to checkout, and remove a downed tree, before deciding we could do it. Lots of mud holes and tight corners. Lots of fun on our honeymoon in our ‘15 JKU - Sahara.

So much fun especially with some mud after a good rain! Definitely need some a little 4WD for a couple of spots. Well with your trip!

HikingMuddyOver grownRocky

Was looking for primitive camping in the area, and checked out the campsite once you cross railroad tracks. Didn’t like it too much and put in another campground. GPS said to go through trail. The gravel road coming in isn’t bad at all. But once you pass the house it gets pretty bad. Was in a stock 17 4runner. Decent size mud holes and no obstacle too challenging. But the over growth was very bad. Didn’t intend going on an overgrown trail for a while being as truck pretty new. Got plenty of scratches now. If the over growth wasn’t there it’d be awesome trail but would not recommend for anyone not wanting to mess up their paint. If new to off roading would go with at least one other truck, needed a spot in two sections of trail.
