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.

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!
