The Marion County Trail—better known as the MCTrail—runs for nearly 3 miles along Pricketts Creek through rural Marion County. The trail’s main highlight is a 1,200-foot lighted tunnel (Meredith Tunnel) under Speedway Avenue and Suncrest Boulevard.
The paved trail begins near Prickett’s Fort State Park, a reconstructed fort originally built on the frontier of what was then known as Virginia in 1774. Less than a century later, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad came through, and it is upon this old right-of-way that the MCTrail sits. At Prickett’s Fort, you can connect with the Mon River Trail to continue into Morgantown.
