The Caperton is a 6 mile, asphalt paved trail. It is the middle section of the Mon River Rail Trail and closely parallels Beechurst Avenue, WVU, and local businesses along the riverside.

Love running along the trail. There's always a lot of people using the trail, but the views it gives are wonderful! Access to the trail is also very convenient.
