Mon River Trail

How a first-timer experienced the trail

September, 2020 by jvirago

I did the whole Mon River part of this trail system for the first time last weekend, and I hope my experience is helpful to others: The Sheepskin Trail, Mon River-North, Caperton, Mon River-South and MC trails are all contiguous, and can be thought of as one, mostly crushed limestone, trail. I started out on the Sheepskin Trial in Point Marion, PA, where I found easy parking and a stunning, huge outside wall mural of stained glass. Cyclists coming from the north may find it convenient to start here. I continued south as the trail turned into the MR-N, which can only be thought of as scenic if you appreciate waste water treatment plants, coal powered electric generating stations, and locks and dams. The Caperton section is a varied, mostly urban route that runs past the WVU campus and offers opportunities for food and drink right on the trail. Found MR-S the most scenic of the three and also enjoyed the quick little ride through the pretty state park and lighted tunnel into nearby Fairmont on the MC Trail before I turned around and headed back. Almost no port-o-johns, picnic tables or water anywhere along the trail. Few benches, several of which are in poor shape. Downed trees blocked much of the trail in several areas and had been cleared only enough for a bike to pass, not removed from the trail. The MR-S was often grassy and sometimes narrowed to a foot path. Seems like maybe this trail system could use some more volunteers! Haven't done the Deckers-Creek yet.

Little Crabtree Creek Trail

Peaceful Short Trail

September, 2020 by yukonjr

I have been out of biking for a while, and figured this would be a great place to start out again. Word of warning, if you’re really out of shape like me, the trail is slightly downhill from the lake and pretty much all uphill on the way back. Not much of a grade, but I figured you should know. I love this area, my elementary school was not far from here. We used to take field trips down to Twin Lakes when the lakes were drained (one at a time). There was not much here then, and I don’t recall much evidence of the line that used to be here. Thank you Mr. Ballash for giving us a history on this line. You will enjoy this peaceful but short trail.

Great Allegheny Passage

Fantastic Adventure

September, 2020 by ron.ritter

On June 30, 2020, I started in Cumberland at first light. Bike was fully loaded for a self sufficient adventure. I was on a carbon road bike with 23mm tires. There were only a couple sections where the gravel was soft an pillowy slowing me down a bit to ensure I stayed upright. The key to getting through this brief section is to keep pedaling. The more you pedal the more your bike wants to stay upright. Beyond that the the trail is very isolated in sections. At some parks/ parking lots along the route There are tool stations with air pumps. There are bathrooms along the that I thought were few and far between, perhaps due to Covid and some being removed. I was able to do 122 miles in one day fully loaded at about 13 mph, just interested to see how far I could go. I noticed most others were not moving at that speed. I made the return trip back to Cumberland the next day.

West Penn Trail

Trail of many Faces

September, 2020 by sandymo

Read the trail description, the reviews, AND the West Penn Trail website. This is an awesome trail but NOT for casual riders or those not used to serious climbs and loose gravel. That said, we loved the challenges of riding it end and back from Blairsville. You must be able to push or carry your bike up several flights of wooden stairs and later climb and descent short pieces in excess of 12%. You’ll be rewarded for your efforts with many river crossings, tunnel views, and lots of amazing views. Don’t miss this trail if you’re in the area and want a challenge.

West Fork River Trail

Labor Day gem! First time visit and would recommend to anyone. Can view the river most of the way. Lots of shade and easy grade. Really is a 5 star.

Indian Creek Valley Bike Trail

No way through

September, 2020 by lenorajane01

We started the trail across from the Saltlick Township Volunteer Fire Hall. The first gate was a little difficult to pass because one has to squeeze between the side of the closed gate and a large rock, trying to be careful not to fall in the ditch. The trail between the first gate and the second gate is nice, wide and easy to navigate. The second gate was not so easy to navigate. Over grown. Further you go on the path the less there was of one. I don't know how maintains the trail but they don't do a very good job at it.

Deckers Creek Trail

Beautiful scenery...good trail surface...enjoyed the coast back down the hill

September, 2020 by bikin-mike

Started at Mile 3 right behind the Springhill Suites. Easy access from the back of their parking lot. Trail surface was in great shape. Cinders were a little thin from about mile 3.5 to 5.5. Could feel the ballast underneath, but nothing too bad. Easy on a hybrid with 700x35 tires. Trail is usually high above the creek. Closest to the creek with a nice little waterfall was at mile 7.2. Prettiest spot was at the rock overhang and the gorgeous waterfalls at mile 12. Good news - the grade flattens at about mile 12, so instead of 16 miles uphill it was only about 9!!! Had some pea size loose limestone near the road crossings at the limestone mine. Had about 5 small concrete bridges between Masontown mile 13 and Reedsville mile 17. Trail past Reedsville was a little soft, but they were working on it. Started a pretty steep climb from Reedsville to the dead end in the woods. Ate lunch at the DQ in Reedsville. Follow the signs to downtown. About a 1/2 mile up a steep alley with no traffic, then a very short ride on the sidewalk along Rt 7 from Church St to DQ. Nice pavilion to sit outside and eat.

My only complaint is quite a bit of road noise from trucks on Rt 7 for most of the ride. If I do it again, I think I’d turn around at Masontown. Not much scenery from there to the end.

After a break at the hotel, road the 3 miles of paved trail into Morgantown. Two nice restaurants right on the trail next to the river just left of the creek.

After dinner, rode the paved trail along the river up past WVU. All told, about 44 miles.

Great day! Great trail! Thanks for the wonderful trail.....Bikin-Mike - Aug 2020

Panhandle Trail

Broke my wife’s leg

September, 2020 by ss.schuler

The poles between the trail are too close and too high. She clipped the pole and fell breaking her leg. Poor design but great trail. I could design a better pole in 5 minutes.

Ghost Town Trail

Great ride August 2020

August, 2020 by cfernscpa

Riding East to West paid off because the ride back was down hill. Went from Black Lick to Nanty-Glo.

Cheat Lake Trail

South Trail is closed

August, 2020 by sgoss512

Disappointed to find out the south portion of the trail is closed for renovations. Parked at the Lake Lynn side and walked about 1.5 miles before turning around. The trail is crushed limestone/gravel so it’s easily navigable in most shoes. Hopefully the rest of the trail reopens.

Browns Run Trail

Nice trail

August, 2020 by japar14

Beautiful trail. Enjoyed both sections.

Indian Creek Valley Bike Trail

Beautiful trail section from camp Christian down to the yough river

August, 2020 by marcnnicole0110
