Reedsville Trail Connector

The Reedsville Trail Connector is a ½ mile link from the Deckers Creek Rail-Trail to the Reedsville Park and downtown businesses.  A small section of this connector is trail, but most of it uses back neighborhood roads that have minimal traffic. The route will be signed to direct trail users to the Reedsville community park and several town businesses.

This creates an easy walking and biking connection to the rail-trail for the adjacent Reedsville neighborhood and creates a safe route for trail users to get to park amenities and Reedsville businesses rather than the current option of using Route 92, which is heavily trafficked with a steep grade and blind curves.

Reedsville Community Park

Less than half a mile from Deckers Creek Rail-Trail, this park has many amenities, including restrooms, pavilions with picnic tables, and a playground.  The park features beautiful, mature trees for shade and a large rock outcropping.

Reedsville Downtown Businesses

About a half a mile from the Deckers Creek Rail-Trail, this route ends at the intersection of Church Street with Route 92.  This gateway into downtown is a few blocks from Modern Homestead Coffee Shop and Greenhouse, Modern Homestead Guest House, and Old School Pizzeria.

Status

The connection from the Deckers Creek Rail-Trail to West Street has been built, which makes this a completed trail connector.  The signs at the trail and on the roadways have been ordered and we hope that they will be installed before June 2020.
