Shinnston September 9, 2019:  Just discovered this was never published – it was in the draft file. It is too good to leave there. Something from the visit of these three gentlemen is about to help 5 ladies coming to ride the North Bend Rail-Trail this September. Thank you, Gentlemen, for more than you know.

The North Bend Rail-Trails has had almost $2-million in upgrades since 2017 on the eastern portion of the Rail-Trail.

Shinnston, West Virginia, June 22, 2017: Gillum House Bed & Breakfast is centrally located for the Rail-Trail Enthusiast. Less than 50 feet from the front door is the 17-mile West Fork River Rail-Trail between Shinnston and Fairmont, WV. From the Fairmont end of trail, traverse city streets to the MCPARC Trail (Zand tunnel) to Prickett’;s Fort, cross the road and pick up the MonTrails to Morgantown and beyond into Pennsylvania. A few miles from the Gillum House is the 72-mile North Bend Rail-Trail. We have shuttled guests to the North Bend Eastern Trailhead in Wolf Summit.

Gentlemen ready to ride the North Bend Rail-Trail.

These gentlemen stayed at Gillum House the night before their trail ride. And a week later returned for a night before wending their way to their homes. They had a wonderful ride (their words). One of the gentlemen had me speechless when he said to me, “We have stayed in B & Bs all over the world, and you are in the top 5%.” Thank you, Sir.
