Cheat Mountain Ridge to Shavers Lake Trail Loop - Snowshoe Mountain Resort Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you’ve ever visited the nearly mile-high Snowshoe Resort, it was probably in the winter. Take advantage of the “off-season” here and hit some of the 40-plus miles of trails Snowshoe offers.

Snowshoe Resort is located on the top of the mountain (most ski resorts are located at the bottom), so start on the ridgetop of Cheat Mountain and follow it to the fire tower, which you can climb for a 360-degree view. Then descend the mountain to Shavers Lake and walk around it to pick up the chairlift—allowing you to hike in the mountains, but never up one. This unique West Virginia hiking experience begins and ends at a mountaintop village full of dining, lodging, and entertainment options."
