Mountain Bikepacking

Mountain Bikepacking

Three days on two wheels equals one awesome weekend. This supported bikepacking trip will explore Davis, Thomas, Canaan Mountain Backcountry, and the Blackwater Canyon by bike.

Trip Overview

We’ll spend three days and two nights biking around Davis, Canaan Valley, the Canaan Mountain Backcountry, the Blackwater Canyon, and Thomas. This 60-mile loop will be supported and consist of a mixture of gravel and singletrack riding. We’ll camp at majestic overlooks on the rim of the Blackwater Canyon and soak up the scenery of wild places while we adventure on two wheels through the backcountry of West Virginia.
