Overview

Features: Fall Colors
Family Friendly: The moderate length and gentle grades on this trail make it a viable option for families with children.

Description

The trail starts off Fayette Station Road. Fayette Station Road is a one-way road and as you travel down, there will be a gravel road that turns off to your right. The trail starts about .25 miles off the gravel road and is marked by a gate. If you start in Fayetteville at Town Park, you can get to Fayette Station Road via trails and hike (against traffic) up the road, and the gravel road will then be on your left.

The Hawks Nest Connector Trail is the first section of the planned through-park trail system that will eventually connect river-right and river-left with Ansted, Hawks Nest State Park, New River Gorge National River and Fayetteville. The trail is half conversion from an old road bed and half benched singletrack. Some sections of this trail are rock-armored, so be sure to watch your footing as they can be slippery when wet.

This trail is currently an out-and-back and is quite remote.
