Routes and places linked to the Allegheny Trail. The Allegheny Trail is a hiking trail that passes through the Allegheny Mountains of eastern West Virginia. The trail is not yet complete, and substantial sections are still on roads. It was initiated in 1975, and is being built and maintained by the West Virginia Scenic Trails Association. The northern terminus of the Allegheny Trail is near Bruceton Mills, West Virginia at the Mason-Dixon Line, which here represents the boundary between West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The trail ends at the Appalachian Trail on Peters Mountain on the Virginia-West Virginia border. The Allegheny Trail is a 330-mile (or will be when the last 20 miles are completed). It wends its way south until it meets the Appalachian Trail on Peters Mountain at the Virginia-West Virginia border. Volunteer workers maintain all sections of the Allegheny Trail, which is marked by 2"x 6" yellow blazes. In 2000, the Allegheny Trail (along with four other trails in West Virginia--the WV sections of the American Discovery Trail, the Greenbrier Trail, the Brooke Pioneer Trail and the Hatfield McCoy Trail System) was designated as a Millenium Trail by the Millenium Council. The Allegheny Trail, for maintenance purposes, is divided into four "sections.
