Wheeling Heritage Trail System

Yesterday’s Rails...Today’s Trails

The Wheeling Heritage Trails are an important element of Wheeling’s vitality and represent the evolution of our city, which was once filled with railroad tracks. Now, the City of Wheeling is home to more than 18 miles of paved walking/bicycle trails that run along the Ohio River and throughout the city.

The Wheeling National Heritage Area Corporation preserves and celebrates the city’s beautiful setting, resources, and rich history, including its role as the birthplace of the state of West Virginia. A National Heritage Area is part of our country’s landscape that has been recognized by the United States Congress for its unique contribution to the American experience. For more information, visit the Wheeling Heritage Trails site.
