This is great trail to walk, run, bike or walk your pet. You can start near Summerlee down from Casto's Greenhouses and walk all the way to Carlisle if you would want. It's so peaceful, scenic and calming. You might see some wildlife depending how...More

Easy walking for the most part with a maximum 2.5% on the east ends. Several access points allow you to tailor your walk to the length you want. Semi-restored Virginian depot is now a produce stand, but still photogenic. Pet friendly with lots of trash...More

Not overly impressed with this trail. I've ridden rail trails in PA, and this was more of a sidewalk type ride. Not a lot of scenery, but if you want a little exercise, it will do. There's a stretch that's about 3/4 mile long down...More

The entire region is so breath taking. The trails are amazing and it's not too hot because you are hiking in the canopy. If you are looking for a good thrill, check out a white water rafting trip on The New River or the Gauley....More

Our whole family enjoyed a good bit of this trail. Although it was hard to find from the Rails to Trails website, once we did I didn't want to leave. We found a trailhead before the Pizza Hut off Oyler road. From the gravel lot,...More

These trails are just great. Since they were created from railroad tracks through Oak Hill, the grade is never too steep. I've seen foxes, raccoons, snakes (just the small garden variety) and plenty of cats. Unfortunately, there are also a few dogs whose owners do...More
