Runner Notes

At times, the trail surface can be loose and will require additional care with regard to foot placement.

Description

Run through the trees adjacent to the Nuttallburg coal conveyor, catching the occasional scenic glimpse of the New River Gorge. Along the trail, keep your eyes peeled for coal slag that once fell from the conveyor as it made its way from the mine to the rail lines below. At times the Conveyor Trail's tread can be quite loose, so be mindful of your footing while running.
