The North Bend Rail Trail is a multi-use recreational trail operated by West Virginia State Parks. Formerly an abandoned spur of the CSX system, the trail is part of the 5,500 mile coast-to-coast American Discovery Trail. Stretching 72 miles from I-77 near Parkersburg in Wood County to Wolf Summit in Harrison County, this scenic trail passes through 13 tunnels and crosses 36 bridges. Easily accessible from north/south Interstates 77 and 79, the trail nearly parallels US Route 50 east and west.

    This is a rail trail, one of the more interesting ones I've ridden. Easily a good day's riding for an average cyclist if taken in all at once, it boasts several old rail tunnels and gets a fair share of riders out on the section between Cairo and the Dairy Queen in Ellenboro. A real family favorite, we often ride it after camping at North Bend State Park, where there is a trail head spur heading to the main trail just outside one of the rail tunnels. Interesting runs along creeks with bridges and rail cut-throughs provide variety and the fall foliage is quite good.
