Big Stonecoal Run Trail
This trail connects FS 80 to the Red Creek Trail. It was incorrectly shown as continuously
following the main railroad grade in the upper section rather than rising to the east of the stream.
Just below the Rocky Point Trail junction, Big Stonecoal Run Trail makes a series of switchbacks, some
short, some long. This area has been eroded and the trail is not always obvious.
Rocky Point Trail
The Rocky Point Trail follows the rocky, but level railroad grade, which does
become increasingly rocky. The trail rounds the point and then turns back to the Red Creek canyon
to join the Red Creek Trail. This trail is generally accurate on maps.
Breathed Mountain Trail
This trail also connect FS 80 to the Red Creek trail, but provides a much shorter and
easier loop. Some topo maps do not show this trail. Others indicate that it follows the heavily
beaver-ponded stream down to the Left Fork of Red Creek. The beaver ponds shown on the topo maps
have long since filled in. All that remains are grassy meadows.
Red Creek Trail
This trail follows the floor of the Red Creek canyon, and runs from Blackbird Knob Trail to
Laneville. The northern part of trail is sometimes shown following the Left Fork or may be shown
to the east, generally paralleling Red Creek. The portions of the trail in the lower Red Creek
canyon have been rerouted on to the side hill following the 1985 flood. The red trails along the
creek are the remains of the old railroad grade much of which is washed out.
This trail is frequently only partially shown on topographic maps. As noted in the guides, watch
for cairns and blazes when the trail crosses Dunkenbarger Creek.
Little Stonecoal Run Trail
This trail follows the Little Stonecoal Run to Dunkenbarger Trail. The trail once continued
to Cabin Mountain Trail, but that section is heavily overgrown (the red portion of the trail.)
Cabin Mountain Trail
This trail follows an old railroad grade from FS 80 to access to White Grass and Canaan Valley State
Park ski areas. This trail is extremely wet in places, even in the winter. The area around the
trail has been
logged recently and this trail was the truck route.
Fisher Spring Run Trail
The topo maps are incorrect on this trail as well. It also had to be rerouted after the 1985 flood.
Rohrbaugh Plains Trail
This trail alternates between old railroad grades and rocky trail.
This trail follows old roads to Rohrbaugh Plains Trail. It is generally accurate on topo maps.
