Shingletree Trail | West Virginia Rails To Trails


West Virginia’s Monongahela National Forest offers a wide variety of trails for day or multi-day hikes of varying levels of difficulty, including several trails built on former logging railroad corridors. The Pheasant Mountain area, which features preserved timber forests and maintained grassy areas for wildlife, also features two such rail-trails: the Clover Trail and Shingletree Trail.

Both trails offer a rugged hiking experience different from traditional rail-trails, although mountain biking and horseback riding are permitted as well.
