Deckers Creek Trail


There are 19 miles of trail from Morgantown to outside of Reedsville. This section is more secluded than the Mon. trail and goes through wooded and farm areas. It also is steeper with a little more than 900 feet in elevation gain.  The section from Masontown to Melon Chapel is very scenic with rock cliffs and waterfalls adjacent to the trail.  Map (pdf)
