Trailheads

  • Parkersburg: Take I-77 to the Staunton Avenue exit. Turn east on Rt. 47 and take the first right turn (about 0.2 mile from Interstate) onto Old West Virginia Route 47. Continue about 0.7 mile and turn right on Happy Valley Road. Travel approximately 0.4 mile until you see a large house on the left. Immediately after the stone wall (Miller's Landing) is the NBRT trailhead. Park on the gravel section opposite the trailhead. This is the Western terminus of the North Bend Rail Trail.

  • Walker: Exit Rt. 47 at Walker Road, proceed to where the road meets the trail (barricade on left).
