First Day Hike at Kanawha
January 1, 2020 @ 1:01 am
The first day of a new year is an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors at Kanawha State Forest. A First Day Hike begins at 1:00 p.m. at Park Headquarters (formerly the swimming pool building) for an afternoon hike. Three individual hikes all begin at 1:00 p.m. and return to the starting point.
A 4-1/2 mile hike, a 1-1/2 mile hike, and the Spotted Salamander Trail interpretive hike, which is about 1/4 mile, are hikers’ choices. Remember to dress for the weather and wear appropriate footwear. Hikers completing a First Day Hike at the forest receive a WV State Park First Day Hike Patch, as available.
