Cycled this trail one way by shuttling a SUV to Picketts Fort State Park (The southern end of the Mon Trail) and renting a bike from Wamsley Cycles which is located right on the Mon Trail and is very close to the start of this recording. This Trail is perfect for a leisurely bike ride, mostly flat with very little elevation gain, and no major obstacles and was surprisingly quiet, passed way less people than expected. Tons of nice benches and even shelters located right along the trail to relax or have some lunch, some even have a nice view of the river. I didnt have enough time to explore Picketts Fort when I made it to the end as I had to get the bike back to Wamsley before they closed but it looked like a really interesting place and would recommend you plan enough time to check it out. Anyways it was a peaceful and relaxing afternoon and would recommend if looking for such an experience. Only downfall is there are sections where there is a good amount of trash, a small number of homeless people when passing through Morgantown (though there were 2 cops on the trail in the Morgantown section and it was the middle of the day so I never felt unsafe) and some private constuction, again limited to the Morgantown section. So I would rate the Morgantown section probably 2 stars and the rest 4 stars.

Easy, partially shaded ride. Rode from Prickets Fort to Morgantown. Had lunch at Cheddars. Then returned to Prickets Fort. Found some Black Raspberries along the way. Very nice surprise.

Great lightly used trail that runs within a few feet of the Mon River. Very nice scenery with waterfalls along the way. No traffic noise and very few houses.
