Something for Everyone: Cannonsburg Ski Area Cannonsburg Ski Area has some of the most variety in its trails with segments of fast-rolling and flowy single-tracks as well as a pump track and an ever-growing skills area. Cannonsburg works with mountain bikers to create the best experience possible by teaming up with the WMMBA to help build and maintain new trails each summer. Ben LaDuke, head trail coordinator for the WMMBA, describes Cannonsburg Ski Area as “hard climbs, fast descents, flowy, technical, jump lines, pump track, and it all adds up to a very entertaining and diverse trail system.” It also offers fun programs such as Tacos Tuesdays and deck parties throughout the year for its trail users and skiers. Don’t miss out on its upcoming summer events like Skirts in the Dirt, is a women’s only mountain bike race that benefits the WMMBA.
Once you’ve conquered the Cannonsburg Ski Area, you can take the connector trail to the Cannonsburg State Game Area for even more mountain biking fun. The State Game Area takes trail-users through pine trees, across bridges, and through a beautiful, changing landscape. With a few tricky climbs and some fast descents, this trail isn’t recommended for first-timers, but it is absolutely stunning and a total blast to ride! Local riders love that the State Game area has four segments of trail with terrain completely different from each other. Each segment is separated by a small stretch of gravel road, perfect for snacking and staying hydrated. From start to finish at the trailhead, the State Game Area is about seven miles in length, but if you have less time to ride or you want to cut it short, you can navigate your way back to the parking lot on the roads.
