Grand Vue Park’s recently renovated mountain biking trails cover miles of hilly terrain throughout the park with scenic stops along the way. The trail is marked with an orange diamond blaze system with a reflective border to aid night rides. Usually starting at the main office, riders start at the double track and ride to the Mountain Bike Trailhead. The course is technical in some areas and is geared towards intermediate and advanced riders. There is a hiking and biking friendly 4 mile double track for novice and beginner riders. More trails for beginners will be coming soon along with a skill building course. All riders are encouraged to wear a helmet, you are riding at your own risk. Be sure to check out our schedule of events that include 5ks, mountain bike group rides and races, trail walks, and volunteer trail maintenance days.

Bissonnette Gardens
(formerly Waddington Gardens)

The Bissonnette Gardens are a re-creation of many of the gardens that existed in Oglebay in the early 1900s. Visitors are enticed to wander on red brick paths through the ever-changing flower displays, hanging baskets and majestic trees. These lovely sites are made even more memorable by the addition of soft landscape lighting and water displays.

Experience the unique sights, natural settings and rich history of Wheeling on this extraordinary 13 mile paved trail, Wheeling’s former railroads!

The Ohio River Trail runs north-south starting at the city line in South Wheeling and reaches the Pike Island Dam where the trail continues into Brooke County. In Wheeling’s 8.5-mile distance, the trail follows the river, passing many of the city’s industrial sites and crossing through Wheeling Heritage Port. Along the way, stop to read the historic signs, take in the National Historis Landmark Wheeling Suspension Bridge, and view the river traffic particularly as barges pass through the locks at Pike Island.

The Wheeling Creek Trail runs east-west providing opportunities to cross the Hempfield Viaduct high above the creek and experience the Hempfield Tunnel (Tunnel Green). THe trail begins in downtown connecting to the Ohio River Trail at Heritage Port and extends five miles to Elm Grove.

The Wheeling Heritage Trails are an important element adding to Wheeling’s vitality.
