The Kanawha Ski Club does more than just ski and snowboard. Most of our members enjoy multiple activities, such as Hiking, Biking, Whitewater Rafting/Kayaking/Canoeing and more. During the off-season for skiing, the club organizes various other activities of general appeal to the members including Hiking, Biking, Zip-Lining, Rafting, Fishing, Picnicking, Boating, Bowling, and more.
We are always looking for more ideas for fun. If you have ideas for fun activities and/or would like to lead an activity, let us know
Elk River Trails Bike Ride
July 14, 2021
Ivydale, WV to Dundon, WV
The trip is essentially flat downhill 12 miles one way. A shuttle will be set up for those who don’t want to bike back to Ivydale. There is plenty of parking available at each end. There is a Subway and a Gino’s at Dundon.
We will meet at Ivydale at 9:00 to setup the shuttle. Bikes will be dropped at Ivydale, then most cars will be taken to Dundon. One or two cars would then bring the drivers back to Ivydale. After the ride, some would drive back to Ivydale to pick up the cars left there.
Joe Carney will be the trip leader. Please contact Joe by July 12 if you plan to go.
To get to Ivydale, take I-79 to Exit 40, Big Otter. Go right and take Route 16 for 6.2 miles to Route 4 & 16. Turn right and go 0.4 mile to Route 46, Ivydale Ridge Road. Cross the bridge and turn right. Go about ¼ mile to a large gravel parking lot beside a large white building.
