Gauley Mountain Trail, West Verginia
Gauley Mountain Trail is used mostly as a connector trail for Right Fork Connector, Red Run, Bear Pen and Tea Creek Connector Trails. It is a little over 5 miles from Rt.150 to Mine Rd., making it almost 11 miles out and back. It is also used to design loops including those other trails, most notably Red Run Trail.
This trail was once an old railroad grade; however, it is mostly singletrack now. There are a couple of fairly steep, very rocky spots.
In West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest, the Gauley Mountain Trail features sweeping vistas, spruce and aspen groves, beautiful meadows, beaver dams and rolling creeks. The area is also home to several intersecting trails, offering a selection of loop options for multi-day hikes of varying levels of difficulty.
