The Cass - Bald Knob - Snowshoe Loop is a 33 mile bike loop that goes up and down two
different mountains and climbs a combined total of nearly 3000 feet.
The loop first goes up
Back Allegheny Mountain
, the second highest point in West Virginia.
From Bald Knob you can see at least 17 mountains in two states.
Bald Knob lies within the
Cass Scenic Railroad State Park.
The park has an active railroad so you might see old-time logging
From there it's downhill until crossing
Then begins the climb up
As the loop heads towards the top of Cheat Mountain it passes through the
Snowshoe Mountain Resort.
After passing near the highest point on the mountain it's almost all downhill
for several miles on a steep windy road where you can get up some real speed
before returning to the beginning of the loop. Loop ride surface
is pavement, Forest Road, dual track and non-technical single track.
