Harrison North Rail-Trail | West Virginia Rails To Trails


The Harrison County North Rail-Trail follows the West Fork River from North View in Clarksburg north, ending at a dead-end just south of the tiny communities of Spelter and Meadowbrook. Recently repaired, the trail offers a scenic, albeit rough, route through dense woodlands with periodic water views.

Harrison County and the newly-formed Harrison Rail-Trails, Inc. are currently working on extending the trail north, south and west, with eventual plans calling for connections with the popular West Fork River Trail and North Bend Rail-Trail, as well as the developing Harrison County Southern Rail-Trail.
