Mountain Biking:

Savage River State Forest (MD)


About 40 miles of single track trails and many country roads throughout this 54,000 acre area make this a great mountain bike destination. Beginner to intermediate routes can be found by linking the trails and roads with advanced single track available as well. Not all of the trails link together, so plan accordingly. Trail maps are available at the forest office or can be ordered through the web site.


The forest is located in western, MD about an hour from Morgantown, WV.  The Google directions below are to the forest headquarters.
