Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (L & R Trail) | West Virginia Rails To Trails


The Lewisburg and Ronceverte Trail (commonly known as the L&R Trail) will one day connect these two historic towns set amid the Allegheny Mountains of southern West Virginia. The beautiful natural backdrop was one of the reasons Lewisburg was named by Budget Travel as the “coolest small town in America” in 2011. Explore the city on the trail that traces the route of the former L&R Railroad, which provided freight and passenger service between Lewisburg and Ronceverte from 1906 to 1931.

Currently, less than a mile of the trail has been constructed, but plans call for expanding the pathway to 6 miles. The completed Lewisburg segment is a 4-foot-wide path paved with vibrant colored asphalt that follows quiet, tree-lined streets through a town known for its many 18th- and 19th-century buildings. The trail begins near the Old Stone Cemetery and winds through Graham Addition, one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods. Phase II of the project will continue the pathway from Frazier Street to Holt Lane.
