    Dogs just help you go faster. I have riden it but it was years ago. It is a nice area but I don't know anything about dogs. I do remember that there seemed to be lots of wildlife in the park

    I've got my pepper spray, but I'd rather not use it if I don't have to. I just don't understand why people get animals and turn them loose on the neighborhood. I have a dog myself but he stays in my yard and doesn't terrorize the joggers and/or bicyclists.

    Thanks,

    Ray

    There has been alot of trail work done at the park this past summer... you might just want to give them a call & see what's up.
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    I rode the trail last Saturday and had a blast. I saw a bobcat walking up ahead of us on the trail. Man, are they BIG. Stopped in a little town named Cairo, WV. It was a nice little town and they were having a Pioneer Festival. Music, Food, & Drinks.

    I would recommend this ride to anyone close to Parkersburg, Clarksburg, WV.

    Good Riding,

    Ray
