Cranberry Nature Center Hillsboro WV,
This two night bike-packing trip consists of an out and back ride on Forest Road 102 and Forest Road 76 in the Cranberry Backcountry along a pretty stream. These Forest Service roads are the border of the Cranberry Wilderness Area. We start at the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center and then drive nearby to the Forest Road 102 trailhead. We will bike with gear for two nights as far as we want to find a good campsite. There are Adirondack style shelters all along this route. We will base camp for both nights. On Saturday we will continue away on the forest service road as far as the Cranberry Campground and return to camp for Saturday night. Return to Cranberry Mountain Nature Center Sunday morning. There will be plenty of time to swim and have an optional hike into the wilderness area. Helmets, gloves, high visibility vest, spare tube & repair parts required along with backpacking gear that you can safely carry riding a bike. Mountain or Hybrid bikes only. Leader likes a slow pace with lots of time for looking around and relaxing.
Meet at the Cranberry Mountain Nature Center. We will drive a short distance to the trailhead after everyone arrives.
