Description

This trail makes for a great urban run on a dirt path following the Falling Run Creek. You can access this trail off of the dead-end Falling Run Road northeast of the Vandalia Apartments. This trail criss-crosses a creek that changes with the seasons—experience it in spring to witness the creek at its peak flow or in winter to experience it frozen.

For more info about West Virginia University's Falling Run Greenspace, check out their website.
