Deckers Creek Trail Restoration Work Schedule

Rock Forge Lane to Greer Limestone Deckers Creek Plant and Masontown to Trail End

Trail Sections will be CLOSED in phases starting July 23rd to possibly October

Major restoration work on the Deckers Creek Rail-Trail will start this Thursday, July 23 on sections of the Deckers Creek Rail-Trail outside of Morgantown city limits.  This work will improve drainage, restore trail surface of compacted stone, and re-establish the rail-trail’s 10ft width.   Work on the over 12 miles of rail-trail is anticipated to take several months depending on the weather.

This project is partially funded from the Federal Highway Administration’s Recreational Trails Program and administered by the WV Department of Transportation, Division of Highways.

The trail will be closed in phases. MRTC will try to keep as much of the trail open in sections while this work is underway. If safe, the Mon River Trails Conservancy will open the trail over the weekends. Please find other locations for trail adventure on week days and thank you for your patience.
