Waterfalls of Canaan

The Spring has been perfect this year.  There has been just the right amount of sun and rain.  We have enjoyed many weeks of dry trails and this week looks a little wetter.  I love all the waterfalls that you can ride your bike to around here.  Here are a few of my favorites: 
Blackwater Falls near Yellow Birch Trail

Big Run Falls off of Forest Road 18 and Canyon Rim Trail
Douglas Falls on the Blackwater Canyon Rail Trail

Adventure Seen at Canaan MTB Festival

Scott Wootten of Adventure Seen put together this little ditty that captures the Moon Rocks and the sweet loamy riding of Canaan.  Last year WooBear provided the entertainment at the VIP Party and raffle.  He showed some of his own bike movies and ones from around the globe.  It was  really great night and big raffle with proceeds going to the Tucker County Trails(TCT).  This year, Scott will be at the party again and be riding during the day and flying his drone helicopter getting footy of Blackwater Falls.
