Blackwater Canyon Trail

By

On November 18, 2016 the WooFDriver and his crew took to the mountains of West Virginia for a mushing adventure with the WooFPAK! They FurWheeled the beautiful 12.2 mile long Blackwater Canyon Trail that runs from Thomas to Hendricks in Tucker county, dropping 1,229 feet of elevation along the way. Starting in 1888 the West Virginia Central and Pittsburgh Railway that ran here was used to transport lumber and coal. It has been since 1983 that the last train rode the tracks here and in 1985 a record breaking flood destroyed the railroad beyond repair.
