Scenery is beautiful. Loved riding to Cass for lunch. Some sections of the trail have such thick gravel that my tires gave way. Other sections were quite bumpy. We only rode 20 miles and I was sore the next day. Not nearly as nice or...More

Your Best option is to stay in Marlinton. Not a lot of options along the way. Cass is a nice place at the upper end of the trail. Not sure about hotels but they have a nice scenic railroad you can ride .
