The Wheeling trail system has essentially two routes - the Ohio River system follows the river from Clearview in the northern reaches of the city down to South Wheeling. The Wheeling Creek trail heads east to Elm Grove. It's a great resource for commuting, exercise, etc. In addition, the city often hosts events along the trail, including a Zombie walk in October. Totally awesome system for a city of this size.

So I've lived in Pittsburgh since 2010 and have never really explored Wheeling (besides Oglebay Resort). Today I drove to Wheeling and parked along the trail in an industrial area near a Lowe's Home Improvement store.

The trail surprised me. It was well-maintained. Traffic was light. There were interesting historical markers to read. The people I did pass were all friendly and raced to be the first to greet me as we passed. I was thrilled to find Port-a-Potties, as nature called! Haha! The view of the river was great, and the trail was well-integrated with the surrounding city.

It provides a good history of Wheeling through various signs along the trail. It's a little depressing when I went. I think there was three people in the area. I guess summer it's more lively. Wheeling really needs an infusion of something in this area. Vacant and run down buildings. No good hotels or restaurants that I could see. Quite a bit of homeless people walking around but they are friendly and I do have sympathy for their plight. I just expected more from the city that used to be named "The Gateway to the West"

We walked the Heritage Trail on Water Street along the Ohio River on June 29, 2014 and it was very beautiful and dog friendly with doggy bags provided if needed. Met some very nice people, all ages, while there. Kids (12,15 and 17...one a cross country runner) and Luie, our Snow Lab, enjoyed this stop on our way to Deep Creek Lake, Maryland.

had a great time riding our bike along the scenic Ohio River and did about a 4 1/2 mile ride with our 6 year old daughter. What we did was flat and then afterwards we went up for Pizza and brought it back down to the park and watched the boats. A nice time

We arrived in the late morning on a weekday and parked on a side street and walked about 1.5 miles on the river front paved trail. There were more walkers than cyclists that morning but path is plenty wide. Enjoyed the various historical signs along the way and liked walking under the historic bridge. Went to nearby Market Center for lunch.

This trail starts at 48th Street in Wheeling and goes all the way to Wellsburg, WV. I believe the oneway distance is 18 miles. The entire trail is asphalt and follows close to the Ohio River most of the way.

Very nice long trail for walking, running or biking. plenty of things to see. I started at the skate park in Elm Grove and ended up by the river.

This trail was built by people from wheeling that rode bicycles! They helped develop the idea and do the preliminary work. It is bothersome that wheeling could just let the name be the bike trail. Too many walkers with strollers, roller blades, and dog walkers ( with flexi-leashes) these days. People complain about riding on the roads but these things make riding on the trail difficult.
