West Virginia University purchased the greenspace in December 2012. Student volunteers started building trails in August 2016 as part of WVU's Welcome Week. With their help, we have constructed approximately 2.6 miles of trails, with an average slope of 7.5%. When completed, Falling Run will have 13 trails and 8 access points totaling nearly 5 miles.
