Cross Country Skiing — Deckers Rail Trail System

Description

This is a great resource to learn cross country skiing. There are consistant flat trails located in downtown Morgantown or very close to town. Not as much snow is needed to ski on these trails as on forest or field trails. The paved section of trail is not very fun to ski due to poles hitting the hard surface. A little way out of town, the crushed surface is ideal. The Deckers Creek Trail near Masontown is a great cross country ski resource as it snows more there and the snow stays on the trail a long time. No facilities. Map (pdf)
