The Wheeling Heritage Trails running on the former B&O line are known locally as two trails that connect in downtown Wheeling: the Ohio River Trail and the Wheeling Creek Trail. The route is flat and paved, and beautiful signs along the way provide a self-guided tour of Wheeling’s past.
The Brooke Pioneer Trail follows the east bank of the Ohio River between Wellsburg and the Brooke–Ohio County line at Short Creek. Here the Brooke Pioneer Trail continues into Ohio County as the Wheeling Heritage Trails. Both trails are paved and provide a total of 18 miles of scenic hiking or biking along the river between the two cities they connect.
Grand Vue Park’s recently renovated mountain biking trails cover 21 miles of hilly terrain throughout the park with scenic stops along the way. The trail is marked with an orange diamond blaze system with a reflective border to aid night rides. Usually starting at the main office, riders start at the double track and ride to the Mountain Bike Trailhead. The course is technical in some areas and is geared towards intermediate and advanced riders. There is a hiking and biking friendly 4 mile double track for novice and beginner riders.
