This Unique Rail Biking Trail Experience In West Virginia Belongs On Your Bucket List

Decades ago, train tracks crisscrossed the Mountain State, allowing the railroad to transport coal, logs, and other goods in and out of West Virginia. Many of these tracks remain, but some have been dismantled and turned into trails to encourage outdoor recreation as part of the national rails-to-trails movement. The Greenbrier River Trail might be the state’s most famous rail trail, but that doesn’t at all mean it’s West Virginia’s only train-track-turned-hiking-trail. Take the West Fork Rail Trail (not to be confused with the West Fork River Trail!), for example, which is the other extreme (by far less known and by far less curated) than the famous GRT.
