Scenic Chairlift Rides: Canaan Valley and Timberline

Want to take in some amazing views? Go for a scenic autumn chairlift ride at Canaan Valley Resort. The views of the valley, surrounding mountains and fall foliage are breathtaking, especially from an elevation of 4,280 feet. The bird’s eye views from the chairlift make the already-stunning sights truly over-the-top beautiful. Ride the lift back down or hike the two miles to basecamp. Either way, you’ll be immersed in some of the most explosive fall colors the east has to offer.

Timberline Resort also offers scenic chairlift rides. Enjoy a scenic ride to the top of Herz Mountain at an elevation of 4,268 feet. Soak up the stunning views of Canaan Valley, the perfect backdrop for a family photo.

The chairlift operates Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Adult lift tickets - $10, Youth lift tickets - $7, Children under 5 ride free

Please confirm hours of operation, months chairlift is open, and time/cost with Tucker
