Come Play in the Dirt

Spawned from dirtbag daydreams, Trail Labs is a group of likeminded folks experimenting in all things trail. Trail Labs mission is to enable a quality and enjoyable trail experience. Drawing from nearly 20 years of travel, adventure, and endurance sports industry experience, this conglomerate of cool inspirations is bound to be an adventure.

After 10 years of professional trail design and construction, the folks behind Appalachian Dirt are creating new opportunities; not just in creating a quality trail experience but to instigate and facilitate the lifestyle that surrounds trail use. Before, during, and after a bike ride….that’s what we are about.

Ways to Play

With multiple facilities under constant development and an offering of amenities, we have options to enable your adventure.

  • Fee for Use Facilities: Trail Systems and Skills Areas
  • Bike Rental and Pro Shop
  • Retail
  • Cafe and Beer Garden
  • Ride Center

Bike rentals are available from Trail Labs HQ located in Canaan Valley. Our rental fleet includes a range of dirt jumpers, a trials bike, kids bikes, and fat bikes.

Shop Our Retail Area


Trail Labs HQ offers a small carry out cafe with easy to grab cafe items that would just as easily go with a cup of coffee on the porch as they would fit in a jersey pocket on a ride. Hang out and lounge in the beer garden post ride with views of Timberline, Whitegrass, and Canaan Valley Resorts.
