11/21 Climbing to Kingdom Come

Cumberland Kentucky; rt 160 access to Little Sheppard Trail with a constant stream of dump trucks loaded with gravel from the nearby quarry to build more roads to haul more coal from the surrounding mountains.  Twelve hundred feet up in about 5 miles to the good stuff up on top. 

A little time on top along the ridge to take in the solitude view, sneaking into the the playground on the way down, brightens up a grey day far away.

trying not to be seen


Park to Park:  From Howells Mill, Adahi along the Mud, onward, inward to the Trench up to the Overlook...  look over that long draw - all that ground covered along and up the Guyandotte. Pop over Heath Creek - that sketchy old road that is really private property, so I've been told (thank you very much).  Two hours in with the feed bag at  Beech Fork SP watering hole.  Tom and his dog said it was all good, and it was, that ol' loop.  Turn for home - three holler hops to the house;  Heath Creek reverse payout - out of Roach - and the beautifully painful Saunders Creek hill.  Six hours almost flat.   Perfect Day.

Barboursville FAT Tire Brethren

Beech Fork Association of Trails



bFAT is an informal group of riders who appreciate the land and ride for a healthy well being.



Beech Fork is mostly a single track trail that follows around the lake leading into a combination of creek bed, hill climb, and fast downhill back to the lake.  Barboursville's Park has some nice runs from the top with  numerous scenic overlooks from the  sheer  cliffs and steep drops. The flat single track that follows the river and comes out behind the lake - is where the real fun can begin or end. Click on the link at top of page - above left to see a map!    The  Kanawha Trace and Adahi Trails are 32 mile and  17 mile multi user trails crossing over private land.  Check with the Tri-State Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America for trail information and registration.
