Carnifex Ferry Old Growth Nature Trek

May 1, 2021

The Carnifex Old Growth Nature Trek meets at the Patterson House at Carnifex Ferry Battlefield State Park in Summersville, WV. Beginning at 9:30 a.m., you’ll hike to Pierson Hollow’s old-growth forest to take a closer look at this diverse ecosystem, including rare species. Be prepared for an easy one-mile hike with some moderate terrain. The activity should last about 1-1/2 hours in order to enjoy the outdoor experience.

Celebrate Spring in Appalachia at the 2021 Spring Nature Fling (formerly known as Wildflower Weekend) sponsored by the National Park Service. West Virginia’s State Parks and other areas in or near the New River Gorge National Park area are included in suggested activities.
