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 is 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 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.
