The Meadow River Trail is a planned 23.1-mile pathway that traces its scenic namesake river in Southern West Virginia’s Fayette and Greenbrier counties. It will run from Rainelle to Nallen and may one day connect to the Gauley River National Recreation Area at its northern end. The compacted stone trail will be suitable for walking, biking, fishing, and possibly horseback riding.
The rail-trail will follow a former CSX spur line built in 1907 that once serviced a lumber company. It will include two trestle bridge crossings over the Meadow River.
In 2016, 16.7 miles has been purchased and funded for development and another 6.4 has been purchased and yet to be developed. Several miles of trail had been built and bridges decked but were destroyed in June 2016 floods.
