Mon and Deckers Rail Trails


These trails are great resources for Morgantown.  They provide opportunities for hiking and running that can be accessed from many spots right in town. The trail is reasonably crowded in Morgantown city limits, but just outside of town, there are miles of trail with great scenery and few people. 29 miles of trail exist from WV/PA state line to Pricketts Fort in Fairmont. 6 miles in downtown Morgantown are paved. The rest is packed gravel. The section along the Monongahela River is flat the whole way. The Deckers Creek trail is steeper and consists of 19 miles of trail from Ruby McQuain Park to Reedsville. Map (pdf)
