East Wetzel Rail-Trail Description

The East Wetzel Rail-trail is a 1.5 mile pathway that runs through the town of Hundred in West Virginia. The trail provides connectivity to various local destinations including the high school, the library, commercial and residential areas. The trail is built on the rail bed of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, which linked Cumberland MD to Wheeling, WV. You can find a weather shelter and a marker with the history of the railroad, which was completed in the mid-19th century.

Thelittle town has an interesting history. It was named for Henry “Old Hundred” Church, a centenarian resident and former Redcoat, who with his wife Hannah became something of attractions on the B&O line as the “oldest couple in the states”.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail mostly parallels US Route 250 through Hundred, although it may also be accessed from SR 7 where it intersects with US 250. There is a trailhead across the street from Hundred High School (3490 Hornet Hwy) with parking available for about 5 cars.

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.
