Great Guernsey Trail

An Awesome Little Trail

February, 2024 by rgombeda_tl

The Great Guernsey Trail is a 7 mile (14 down and back) flat rail-to-trail. The pavement is in really good shape. A few years ago they resurfaced the first mile which did away with the washboarding and cracks. At the Corduroy Rd. trailhead there is paved parking and a portable toilet. There is also an overflow lot where you can park if the paved lot is full. During the summer months a little concession stand is open and they sell water, Gatorade, snacks and such. There is also a skate park, dog park and archery range. As you go down the trail you will come across a sign that points to Coal Ridge Park and Trails. DO NOT miss this beautiful spot. It is an old strip pit that is open for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, trail walking and is kept in really good condition. As you go down the trail there are numerous rest spots, benches, and restrooms. The scenery is great. You will see wetlands, woodlands, grasslands, and a plethora of wildlife.

Greene River Trail

Great Trail- will ride again

January, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Road the Green River Trail today from the Southern access point to the Northern Terminus (as stated in the description there is no parking at the Northern terminus)and back for a total of 14 miles. Trail is in great shape and very well maintained. Trail was a nice mixture of wooded trail and river side overlooks. A nice feature of the trail are the info stations along the route. Don’t miss the statue north of the Northern access point. Was pleased to see working bike maintenance station at both the Southern Access Point and at the Access Point located at the 5 mile mark. Trail was dry even with the rain we have been receiving the last week.

Mon River Trail

Mon River Trail (South)

November, 2023 by thejake91739

After going out and back on the MC Trail (only a five mile round trip but totally worth it!), I connected to the Mon River Trail.

Starting at Pricketts Fort, I only went about six miles or so to just beyond the dam before heading back to the trailhead.

That twelve mile ride on a cloudy, late October Saturday afternoon were plenty enough to get awesome views of the Monongahela River, its dam, homes (some stately; some not so much), and dazzling fall color. Plenty of photo ops await!

The trail is hard packed dirt, covered in a layer of golden leaves, and despite rain earlier in the day, it was still smooth, fast, and navigable. I would say it was almost as smooth as asphalt.

I would suspect that because of the continued threat of rain, I pretty much had the trail to myself. My shoes and bike got mud splattered, but it was worth it. The Mon River Trail (South) is worthy of your time, and worthy of its status as a Rails-to-Trails Hall of Famer!

Marion County Trail (MCTrail)

Marion County Trail

November, 2023 by thejake91739

I have never enjoyed a 2.5 mile trail more!

On a late October Saturday afternoon I was absolutely enthralled with this trail. I started at the Pricketts Fort trailhead and was immediately in awe of the spectacular autumnal colors: red, orange, yellow and gold!

The tunnel was fun and interesting, but the highlight was what Mother Nature created with the colorful trees, glistening Prickett creek. and the chirping birds.

The asphalt trail is in perfect condition and is easy to ride. I actually saw a couple of preschoolers enjoying it on their bikes with their families.

Be sure to do this in conjunction with the Mon River Trail to enhance your experience on these Hall of Fame trails!

Conotton Creek Trail

Awesome trail

November, 2023 by phil040167

Super nice trail to ride on a fall day . Well maintained. The ride from Bowerston to scio is very beautiful any time you ride . Make sure you stop at the dairy bar in the summer and take a trip up to Main Street to the country pub food is great and so is the service

Harrison South Rail Trail

2023 Review

October, 2023 by stevefuir

The Harrison South has had a bunch of improvements over the last several years. Mile markers (Mile 1 is near the VA Park, Mile 11 is near the Lost Creek Trailhead). The trail is much wider closer to the VA Park. A new shelter was just built near the VA Park Trailhead. Closer to Lost Creek, the trail is very grassy and is often single track. A bridge is out between mile 4 and 5 as of October 2023.

Caperton Rail-Trail

The paved middle stretch of the Mon River Trail

September, 2023 by bikeridesandbreweries

This is a really nice, wide, well-maintained and smoothly paved portion of the larger Mon River Trail system, so, you can pick up a little speed between the crushed gravel southern and northern ends. The river is in view the entire length of the system, but here, you also ride along the edge of downtown Morgantown and the WVU campus. A few restaurants have covered patios that immediately abut the trail and a funny little single-car monorail runs overhead. There is more pedestrian traffic on this Caperton Trail portion, but not much (unless there's a festival going on). Enjoy this 5-mile stretch but keep going either south, north or both!

Deckers Creek Trail

Great trail but expect a very long, gradual climb

September, 2023 by bikeridesandbreweries

My husband and I took our road bikes on this and found it to be quiet, very well-maintained and scenic. It follows the creek nearly the entire way out of town and is about 90% shaded. The only caveat: if you're not in decent shape or don't like climbing, figure out some way to be dropped off near Kingwood or Reedville and only ride back into Morgantown. It's a low-grade climb (not hard, really), but unrelenting. I'd say 11 out of the 19.5 miles are uphill if you start at the downtown ("Wharf District") trailhead. To put it another way, it took us an hour less time to get back to Morgantown than it did to leave it. But it's still a great trail and VERY few people were on it .

Great Guernsey Trail

short but oh so sweet!

September, 2023 by lunanoiz

Went to ride some trails in Zanesville and decided to go a little further east and check out this little trail and boy am I glad I did. This is just one sweet little honey of a trail. It may be a little bit short and a little bit lacking in scenery, but it is super well-kept and has easily some of the nicest little rest spots I’ve ever seen off of it. It does follow closely to Route 265 & goes under 70 so you do hear a little bit of traffic but you never see any of it. It’s a wonderful little trail that I will ride again whenever I’m in this area.

Cheat Lake Trail

Cheat Lake Trail

August, 2023 by wlzimmermann

Enjoyed the trail very much. Very pleasant scenery with the lake. We parked at the north end of the trail near the Lake Lynn Dam and Hydro Power Plant. As noted in previous comments, there is a steep hill with stairs to get between the parking and the trail. I counted the steps. There are 96 steps, with landings every 11 steps, which is about twice as much as estimates from previous comments. For me, I was really tired after carrying our bicycles up the steps at the end of our ride. I will definitely try to find my way to the other parking if we come back, despite other comments indicating that other parking seems hard to get to.

Panhandle Trail

Well Maintained with Many Places right on the Trail

August, 2023 by jrmc21

Rode Montour Trail connector to Oakdale - about 10 miles. Trail in great shape. Recommend Hunner's Pizza in Sturgeon and Helicon Brewing in Oakdale - both on the trail. Saw many other places along the trail. Trail well marked. Trail is flat in this section except going up the connector.
