West Fork River Trail is a 25.2 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Shinnston, West Virginia that features a river and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Rode several times between '95 and '99. Great bike trail -- lovely area once you're on the trail. Some scenic spots about midway, with small waterfall. Lovely pastoral settings here and there. Saw the first wild red fox on this trail.
Nice well maintained paved trail.
The trail is fairly well kept from Shinnston to Fairmont. A couple parts run past neighborhoods where there are loose dogs that have chased me, but besides that, the scenery is nice!
