Get out and explore the great outdoors! No matter what kind of hiker you are, you’ll find a trail to love at any of the West Virginia State Parks. From easy loops to challenging climbs, you’ll enjoy a nature-filled hike through the trees and mountains and maybe even stumble upon a newfound mountain vista! Before you head out, make sure to stop by any of the park offices to pick up a trail guide.
February is Heart & Sole month. Hike trails and pathways at any West Virginia state park or state forest, record your miles and send your information to [email protected]. At the end of the month, hikers reporting hike miles will receive a Heart & Sole medallion via U.S. Postal. There is no enrollment or fee to participate. Information needed is the name of the hikers, mailing address and miles hikes. Any notes about hiking, state parks or outdoor experiences is welcomed.
