Glen Dale to Moundsville Rail-Trail Reviews

This is fun! It was a great afternoon after I played disc gold at the park.

Yes it is short but, any rail trail is valuable to the local residents. They are glad to have a nice place away from traffic to exercise.

It's an asphalt trail without any hills. I would imagine its good for kids,the elderly, or a leisurely stroll. Not very exciting scenery, but all in all relatively nice & relaxed.


I ride this trail about once per week. Begin at the Marina parking lot,exit the south end and head North on a brief bike lane on a city street and enter the trailhead area. One wooden bridge over a small creek comes up fast before a lot of nice well maintained paved trail. Always someone out walking or jogging, with wildlife the normal (deer roaming freely) make the trail a pleasure to ride. A few benches and workout stations along the way also. The North end parallels a grass runway air strip that is used once in a while still. This is a good evening and weekend quick ride to get in some miles, and you can do it end for end twice for about a 15 mile workout in about an hour on a bike.

Nice, relaxing, scenic trail. About half of trail is shaded. Park benches and work out areas (pull up bars, sit up bar etc) line the trail. Well maintained.
