Upper Shavers Fork Valley on Google Maps

To the north of Snowshoe on the Monongahela National Forest, in the high valley of the Shavers Fork and along the ridges of Cheat and Back Allegheny mountains, the network of forest roads offers several options for long cross-country mountain bike rides  Many of the roads are open to motorized travel in a licensed vehicle, but are lightly traveled and suitable for riding.  Other roads in the system are gated seasonally or closed permanently with a barrier  The area also offers opportunities for hiking, fishing, and other recreation.  The Cheat Mountain Salamander scenic railway runs along the river to the old town of Spruce.

Generally, the light yellow lines indicate the main roads in the area and may be suitable for most vehicles; orange roads are secondary and travel conditions may be rough, especially in lower vehicles.
