The Allegheny Trail is a hiking trail that passes through the Allegheny Mountains of eastern West Virginia, USA. It is the longest named trail in the state (excepting the Appalachian Trail, 4 miles (6.4 km) of which traverse the state at Harper's Ferry).

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.
