North Bend Rail Trail

great scenery

October, 2018 by jiw71

The River Bend State Park section (which was all I had time for) was very interesting historically as well as great scenery. The trail was easily navigable with awe-inspiring tunnels that cut through the terrain. With more time I would have liked to have biked west to Parkersburg.

Cheat Lake Trail

Nice trail

October, 2018 by vicki1960

While in the area we decided to walk along this trail. Parked at the lot on top of the hill which is located on Morgans Run Road. This is also the parking lot for Cheat Lake Park. Walk down the hill and there is a small playground with restrooms. The trail runs in each direction. We walked along the lake towards the dam site. At the dam end of the trail (approx one mile from the park area) there are steps and at the top is another parking lot. That parking lot is literally on the border of Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
The trail is flat and follows the lake on one side and a wooded hill on the other side.
A nice trial to visit if you're in the area.

East Wetzel Rail-Trail

Walked this trail today

October, 2018 by barbjones2015

We walked this trail today, it's a very short little trail but the plaque in town provides a great deal of history. This trail really could use some TLC. Tree limbs growing so low you have to go off the trail.

North Bend Rail Trail

Mountain biking not trail riding

October, 2018 by bjpstrawberry

Trail not maintained well at all. Disappointment to bikers from Ohio. Won't return or recommend to fellow bikers.

Deckers Creek Trail

Scenic walk 'n roll

August, 2018 by brian.mccaulley

The wife and I walked from Masontown for a couple miles towards Reedsville. My wife's mobility scooter had no problem navigating the trail. Some of the bridges have a small 1 or 2 inch "step", which I just kicked some stones against to smooth it out a bit for her 8" wheels.
I recommend bringing a camera. I posted a couple pics but they don't really do this trail justice.

Browns Run Trail

Barb Jones

August, 2018 by barbjones2015

My husband & I walked this trail today for the first time. We were really impressed with how well cared for this trail is. We will definitely use this as one of our "go to" trails when we are looking to get a couple of miles in.

West Fork Trail

Trail Comments

August, 2018 by trie66

Trail was recently maintained, thank you. Enjoyed the workout in the middle section. Would have been nice to have known that the trail was closed at mile 15 due to construction.

Mon River Trail North

Nice trail to walk

July, 2018 by barbjones2015

My husband & I walked this trail recently, going up to Pt Marion PA. Very nice trail with some original railroad items along the way.

Allegheny Highlands Trail

Solitude!

July, 2018 by reid.detchon

I rode round-trip from Hendricks to Highland Park (Elkins) and back for a 50-mile trip and never saw another cyclist. On a hot July day the northern half was much more pleasant (shady and scenic), and the grade was very manageable. The southern half is much more open, and the trail occasionally all but disappears into thin lines of gravel. There are really no amenities on the trail, and the southern end stops about half a mile from Elkins, but it is an easy ride on street or sidewalk to town. As noted by another reviewer, the trail is closed from Mile Marker 15-17 for construction work for the Corridor H highway, but I was riding on a Saturday and was able to pick my way past the big idle machines and over the chewed up roadway, rather than detour onto the road.

Deckers Creek Trail

a walker's perspective

July, 2018 by bikerbabe69

I'm normally a moderate level trail biker, but visited this trail as a walker instead, with 2 - 50+ companions - one human and one canine. I will say you see much more when your pace is slower, even though we only covered a short section of this trail. Due to time constraints and the intense summer heat, we chose the section close to Morgantown over the more rural (and probably more scenic) southern section. Parking is available and adequate at Marilla Park and another dedicated trail parking area nearby. We picnicked in the park and walked over the creek via boardwalk to access the paved trail. It's partly urban views - mobile home park, businesses along rt 7 - but the creek is nearby the entire length. Board of parks employees were very visible on a Monday - running a day camp at the park, mowing the grass, and completing a new trail access bridge. Approaching downtown, there is a nice dog park and benches. The intersection with Hazel Ruby Mcquain Park is, well, interesting. There is a trail parking area I imagine is accessed from one of the downtown streets, and I agree that the bus station parking area is best avoided. The Mon and Caperton Trails intersect here but didn't appear to be well marked coming from the Deckers Creeks Trail, it just ends near the bus station where there are many other walkways, as well as restrooms and a water fountain. This also seemed to where displaced persons congregate - they did not bother with us, or us with them. There was light traffic when we visited, although when WVU is in session I would think it would be busier. I look forward to bringing my hybrid to see the rest of the trail next time.

West Fork Trail

Needs Work

July, 2018 by biagio_wallace

Trail needs some maintenance. Would be nice if it was maintained from both ends. Grass is starting to overtake the trail. It is an enjoyable ride - started from Clymer but as we reached the mid point we should have brought weed whackers.

Allegheny Highlands Trail

Corridor H work

May, 2018 by biagio_wallace

The trail is closed from Mile Marker 15-17 for construction work for the Corridor H highway. If anyone has any knowledge of when this will be completed as it pertains to the trail closure please post.
