For more advanced Mountain Biking Enthusiasts, the Summit offers over 35 miles of trails. The trails weave in and out of the woods and offer one of the coolest ways to take in the West Virginia scenery. From beginner bikers to expert cyclists, there’s a trail for everyone. 
Trail Maps available online or for purchase at the Reserve. Bring your own gear or rent equipment on-site.  

Hiking, Running, and Nature Viewing Trails 
There are multiple hiking trails to enjoy on property. We recommend walking our Gottschalk Boardwalk to quietly connect with nature and explore the wetland ecosystem. Lucky hikers may catch a glimpse of a white-tailed deer taking a drink, or a bald eagle swooping and searching for its fishy dinner.  

Aquatics: SUP, Kayak &Canoes 
Enjoy getting out on the water with Stand-up Paddleboards, Kayaks and Canoes on beautiful Goodrich Lake.  There is no doubt you will enjoy the cool water on a hot sunny day!  

Fishing 
Fishing is available at two locations onsite: Scenic Goodrich Lake East is the perfect place for spin, bait-cast, and fly fishing. Fishing rods are available to rent. You are also welcomed to bring your own fishing gear!  

Skateboarding & Scootering 
Summit Bechtel Reserve’s larger-than-life outdoor skate park is a place for amateurs to learn to skate and for pros to practice their next trick. It includes a fun combo of transitions, ramps, quarter pipes, and more. Never skated? No problem. Our staff members have turned many first timers into confident shredders.  

Laser Shot 
Visit the Crafton Skills Center to try your hand at hunting. The Center offers authentic shooting skill experiences and training through a variety of digital simulations in a virtual shooting gallery format. Participants will learn about firearms safety, safe range practices, and basic hunting skills.  

Primitive Skills 
Learn primitive skills that will help you in the wild and impress your family. Learn the art of throwing hatchets and knives, or long range and LaPorte archery right here in the Appalachian Mountains.  

Guided Archery 
Nothing says “adventure” like a bow and arrow. Our Archery range allows families to test their abilities and hone their skills. All programs are run by expert staff so you stay safe and have fun!  

Sustainability Treehouse  
The Sustainability Treehouse represents the Summit’s commitment to sustainable practices and policies. This award-winning building is like an interactive classroom where families can learn about everything from recycling practices to urban gardening.  

Guided Mountain Biking Tour 
From leg-burning climbs to fun descents, The Jared Harvey Mountain Bike Trail system is a “must-do” for any biker! The trails weave in and out of the woods and offer one of the coolest ways to take in the West Virginia scenery. From beginner bikers to expert cyclists, there’s a trail for everyone to enjoy!
