Mon River Trail


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 Monongahela River. Map (pdf)


There are 11 access points along the trail between Fairmont and Morgantown. Access in Morgantown includes 2 in Star City, the WVU Arboretum, the Seneca Center, Hazel Ruby McQuain Park (Google directions below), and South University Ave.
