I went to Canaan Valley & Blackwater Falls area this summer. There are a lot of forestry roads to explore. At the north end of the valley as you reach the top of the mountain, turn left onto Canaan Loop Road. It will take you over to Blackwater Falls State Park the scenic way. I plan another trip this fall. Jeep + Mountains = Fun!!! If you go, take a trip to Dolly Sods. You won't regret it.

Bunch of land up there is undergoing a lot of changing hands and structure. You can check out the maps of forestry service roads here:

Let me know if you have time and want to wheel around Motown.

I drove down (from Pittsburgh) to Dolly Sods after stopping in for a few moments at Blackwater Falls yesterday. the girl at the desk at BF said that I would get stuck on FR 75 if I attempted it from the park. I wasn't very well prepared, so I heeded her advice and drove the long way up Jordan Run Rd to FR 75. i didn't find it bad on that end at all. I took it up a little ways past Bear Rocks, near the pull off that has a camera symbol on a sign, facing Seneca Rocks. It looks like I would have saved 39 minutes and had more fun if I would have gone FR 19 & 75. I am running a stock JKU and am fairly new to ORV. Thoughts?

FWIW, Google maps actually has that as one of the routes.
