Elizabeth J. Binky Poundstone Memorial River Trail

Typical urban trail

March, 2024 by vdeal

I've been checking some of the local urban trails and this walk was next on the list. Some of the urban trails seem to push the concept of a rail trail but at least this trail does parallel an active railroad (the Cowen Subdivision). The trail is entirely paved and consists of two large loops that go around various balls fields. It does parallel the Buckhannon River a good bit and Buckhannon Riverwalk was the only name I saw listed anywhere. There is a spur that crosses the railroad and parallels it for a ways. It's a pleasant walk but unless you're in the area I wouldn't go out of my way for it.

North Bend Rail Trail

gravel grinder

March, 2024 by wierstheparty

I rode this 72 mile trail from east to west (gradual downhill grade) with 3 of my girlfriends. It was quite thick gravel but the downhill grade helped keep your momentum up to make it not completely exhausting pushing through the thicker stuff. It will rattle you pretty good and we were glad to come to the end. We went in late September and rode in a 60 degree cold drizzle the whole way. Nice feather in our caps!

Bridgeport Rail Trail

Surprisingly nice

March, 2024 by vdeal

We were in Bridgeport today and decided to check out the trail starting from the east end. There is no parking right at the trailhead but there is parking across North Virginia Ave at a small park area. After crossing N Virginia and Water St there is a nice metal footbridge across Simpson Creek and after a short walk on Railroad St you are at the trail. The entire trail is nicely paved and just an overall pleasant experience. We were there in mid-March and the area was covered with the green leaves and yellow flowers of lesser celandine which were very pretty. There were a few people on the trail and it was relatively quiet. The trail goes up and down some and is near an active railroad which appears not to get a lot of use. After about 3/4 mile you reach the Bridgeport City Park which looks very nice and has a trail around it also. Of course you could park at this end and start also. No where along the trail is it named and some places have it listed as the Bridgeport City Park Trail. Only four stars because it's so short. If you're in the area and want a quick little walk, give this a try.

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!

West Virginia Northern Rail-Trail

Nice Trail

October, 2023 by dlohmanwv

I’m looking forward to seeing this trail continue to its potential at 10 miles. It was a nice walk from the Trailhead park. It’s not quite peak leaf season yet…but the leaves are turning.

Elk River Trail (WV)

remote!

October, 2023 by robinf18

We camped on Elk River in Gassaway. Did out and back rides on the trail from Gassaway (end/beginning) down to near Ivydale then started from other end (Hartland) up to just shy of Ivydale. No services, one old convenience store near trail in Duck. Surface is crushed stone and in very good condition. Hardly saw a soul. Lots of deer. Be sure you bring what you need with you. Follows river quite closely all the way.

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 .

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.
