Bear Heaven in Randolph County WV here in the States is a collection of non-official trails winding and weaving through rhododendron and around big boulders. Sometimes the trail ends at an impassable section of rhododendron, and there are multiple paths from any given location, all leading to somewhere different. Needless to say I was amazed I found my way out.

I've said it before and I'll say it again this giantbicyclesusa Trance Advanced 29er is my favorite mtb ever! It just does everything so well! Now with the edition of the new rockshox SID 120 with 35mm stanchions this bike just got better! This Rock Shox SID is so RAD! It has amazing small bump compliance and still ramps ups perfectly to take the big hits! It's absolutely amazing! #ridelife #rideordie #ridegiant #gianttrance29er #rockshox #sid #singletrack #mudlife #spring #thunderstorm #randolphwv ...

This road 🤘🤘🤘! The Shavers Fork River road runs between the Pheasant Mountain road in Tucker county and Clifton Run road in Randolph county. It's a beautifully rugged dirt road! You should check it out sometime! #ridelife #rideordie #gravel #gravelroad #dirtroads #countryroads #spring #scottscale #happyeaster #randolphwv ...
