McDonough is a little gem considering its location. Great for trail running or prepping the kids for larger excursions. The main loop is very mild, while the auxiliary paths (Marsh Run, southern loop) add difficulty if desired. There do tend to be some muddy spots if it's been raining recently. There are no bad conditions, just bad preparation!

Positives: good trail for trail running. very few rocky or washed out places. Overall, very good for trail running. A couple of places where they have created a waterfowl area. Negatives: not very scenic. Lacks any forest floor flora of any kind except for small bushes. Which is a shame since WV is filled with that kind of flora. If they would spend some time transplanting some of that here then it could be a very beautiful trail. As it is now, good for getting you steps in but not much to stop and appreciate.
