Collins Ferry Connector Trail

The Collins Ferry Connector Trail is an approximately 1/2 mile trail linking the Mon River Rail-Trail (near mile 5) to the Suncrest and Collins Ferry Road neighborhoods . The wooded path, once the ferry road, goes from end of Collins Ferry Road to the Mon River Rail-Trail. The connector trail will become a formal walk/bike right-of-way with new compacted stone surface and drainage improvements.

The Collins Ferry Connector Trail will provide easier access to the rail-trail from the Suncrest and Collins Ferry neighborhoods.  As with other connector projects, we hope to make it easier to get to the rail-trail by walking or biking and eliminate the use of a car.

The Collins Ferry Connector Trail project is partially funded by a 2015 grant from the Federal Highway Administration’s Recreational Trails Program administered by the West Virginia Department of Transportation, Division of Highways.


Construction begins-  November 15, 2022.   Right of Way is CLOSED during Construction.  For your safety and the safety of our contractor, please stay off of Connector Trail until work is complete.
