Lol, I guess that's one way of spinning this. Ideally a hiking trail won't be right beside of a retail plaza. But good for those nocturnal urban hikers!

Actually, it is a great place for the trail. It's a commuter and utilitarian trail as well as recreational. The Decker's Creek Trail provides access to the retail in Sabraton and everything downtown for those who live in South Park (though there needs to be a better connection, such as a bridge over the Creek at the bend of Brockway at Pennsylvania) and surrounding areas. It eventually leads out to the mountains along WV 7 and the farms and meadows of Preston County.

Ahhh, that trail. Thanks for clearing that up for me elewis. I've actually walked on that trail with my wife when we visited Morgantown one weekend. It does serve a lot of purpose and I noticed a lot of bikers and runners. It's a very cool trail for being in a city.

The quote in the article was really vague and made it sound like they just put up a dusk to dawn light out back by the dumpster to light a few feet of the trail, lol

So from the outside the new Walgreens looks completely done. Any word on the grand opening date?

They had a"soft" or unannounced opening to give their staff a chance to learn on the job before having a grand opening. It really is quite a nice store.

As to the trail, it is a multi faceted one. The area through Sabraton is right behind the retail area which is quite utilitarian, but on one end it goes to a more remote route past Marilla Park, then to a stretch that is more isolated, past the dog park, and on to connect with the Mon River trail at the river. On the other end it goes all the way into Preston County through the countryside.

The part that goes behind the developed area in Sabraton is very useful in that it provides easy walking access to the businesses there. Walking along Route 7 is neither suitable nor safe.
