Bicycling — Mon River Trail

bicyclists on the Mon. River Trail in Morgantown, WV

Description

This trail, and the Deckers Creek Trail, are great resources. They are reasonably crowded in town but just outside of town, there are miles of trail with great scenery (including spring wildflower displays and fall color) and few people. There are 29 miles of trail from WV/PA state line to Pricketts Fort in Fairmont. The 6 miles in downtown Morgantown are paved, the rest is packed sand/gravel. This section is flat the whole way as it is along the Monongahelia River. Map (pdf)
