The Allegheny Trail is a backpacking and mountain bike trail that runs 330 miles along some of the most breathtaking mountaintops in the Allegheny and the Ridge and Valley Ranges in West Virginia. Most of its access points are within a few miles of US 219, and it follows a similar path through dense Mountain Laurel, and forests of spruce pine, and hardwood, with views extending into both Virginia and West Virginia.  The trail begins near Bruceton Mills, WV (Preston County) and ends where it joins the Appalachian Trail on Peters Mountain, WV (Monroe County), about ten miles Southwest of the Hanging Rock Raptor Observatory.
