Conotton Creek Trail

One of the best trails

June, 2024 by khswy7bn2p

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a ride and the Conotton Trail was incredibly well maintained. We started at the Bowerston entrance and went the full length into Jewett, and back again. The trail was smooth, well maintained, with 5 quaint covered bridges, flower boxes along the way, plenty of resting spots if needed, lots of wildlife (bunnies, squirrels, chipmunks, deer, a large variety of birds). A pit stop at the ice cream shop in Scio for a cone was a sweet treat. If you watch the trees at the beginning of the trail, there are some miniature decorated bird houses in the trees. Great ride!

Montour Trail

Great scenic trail!

May, 2024 by behe.amanda_tl

Loved the Montour trail. Easy parking at Tandem Connections. Rode a bit in both directions to see both the National and Greer tunnels. Scenery is great, with a private golf course within view. Trail is well taken care of and provides nice shade along the way. National tunnel felt amazing on a hot day, like a natural air conditioner!

Great Allegheny Passage

Definite Bucket List Ride

May, 2024 by d_morris

One of the top 10 bucket list rides in the US, easily. And when combined with another, the C&O Canal, you can cycle on dedicated bike paths for 330 miles from DC to Pittsburgh. The 150 miles of the GAP ribbons through pristine forest, past former railway towns being resurrected by all the cycling tourists using the trail.

Wheeling Heritage Trails

"Go before you leave!"

May, 2024 by jreckart

I rode the Ohio River Trail from South Wheeling to Wellsburg Sunday, May 12 - about 20 miles each way - and enjoyed its varied views of Wheeling and surrounding area. Might have earned five stars, except for few deficiencies. (1) Just two restroom facilities along the entire trail. Just. Two. Potties. (2) Asphalt generally okay - some minor root damage. Also a nasty short stretch of Rt. 2 berm-riding north of town. (3) Trailside "areas of interest" signage deteriorated and nearly illegible. Also, few mile markers and no point-to-point distance signage. (4) Trail runs adjacent to several historic Wheeling neighborhoods - but if you didn't know they were there, you'd ride right past. Pretty good trail - needs maintenance and some TLC.

Great Allegheny Passage

Map falls short navigating out of Pittsburgh

May, 2024 by amygerney

This trail map does not show how to navigate out of Pittsburgh… specifically the first few miles with a notable gap across Smithfield Street!

Unless you enjoy open trail along mostly highways & backyards I'd choose another trail. Only bonus to this trail is that it's paved. Definitely not scenic, bring lots of water on a hot day & lots of sunscreen as it's mostly sunny.

West Fork River Trail

Beautiful Rail Trail but e-bike riders beware!

April, 2024 by mike.cnc

Read here: https://shinnstonnews.com/harrison-county-commission-reverses-course-on-rail-trails-electric-vehicles-ordinance/

Unless they've reversed the ruling, Harrison County (Shinnston end of trail) banned all e-bikes from their rail trails in February 2024.

Unless you know otherwise, start your ride in Marion County at Worthington. You can ride nearly all of the trail by looping back toward Shinnston on the trail and turning around at the Harrison County line and going back north. You'll probably lose about 2 - 3 miles of the rail trail but it might keep you from being fined or worse, going to jail.

Brooke Pioneer Trail

Trail is open!

April, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Trail is now open from end to end after bridge construction. Nicely paved trail. The entry spur to the new bridge over Ohio River is still closed.

Claysville National Pike Trail

Great Short Trail

April, 2024 by 8wnyzpk7m2

Great little trail. I have been wanting to do this trail for a while but was closed, so glad it is finally open. There is still a lot little construction that you need to go around (Trail around area is marked very well by engineering tape). Trail only had a few small muddy areas that were easily avoided. Bring a flashlight/bike light for the longest tunnel. This is a hidden little gem of a trail.
