Following a pre-Civil War railroad line from the eastern edge of Claysville to Timber Lake Road, the Claysville National Pike Trail passes through two arch tunnels and offers scenic views of the surrounding landscape. Despite navigating a route between US-40 and Interstate 70, this nature trail is quiet and serene as it meanders through the townships of Donegal and Buffalo.
The surface of this nearly 2-mile trail periodically shifts between grass, dirt, and gravel. Near the eastern end of the trail, there is a picnic area with a grassy field. Bring along a packed lunch and spend some time relaxing in the fresh air.
The Claysville National Pike Trail opened in May 2022 thanks to the dedication and hard work of the Claysville National Pike Trail Council, who are planning to eventually expand the trail another half-mile eastward to the third tunnel near Timber Lakes Road.
At the trail's western endpoint, there is a paved parking lot with entrances on both US Route 40 and Valley View Road (4500 Donegal Ind Park, Claysville).
At the eastern end of the trail, parking is available in a lot off of T488 by Timber Lake.
