Watoga Wonderful Woods Walking Week

to Sep 28

Watoga Wonderful Woods Walking Week

Around these dates, several members of the WVSTA, and maybe some other folks, plan to camp, and also reserve a cabin or cabins at Watoga State Park, in Pocahontas county. If you want to join us for any number of days or nights during this period, to hike or hangout with us, contact the WVSTA on Facebook, and let us know.

There are plenty of things to do at West Virginia's largest state park, and surrounding area, including plenty of hiking, bicycling, bird watching, fishing, kayaking, Greenbrier River Trail, and other activities, or just rusticate at the campsite or cabin. One of the things we plan to do is hike on the Allegheny Trail in or near the park, and hike around the old growth area of the park.

If you think you are interested, contacting us earlier rather than later will give us a better chance of working out any shared arrangements for accommodations. There is a primitive campground without electric, where you can use showers that are several miles away, along with two other campgrounds with showers and electric and water for your campers.

You may also email: wvabooks@aol.com for further info.

WEST VIRGINIA SCENIC TRAILS ASSOCIATION

INFORMATIONAL MEETING

The WVSTA in cooperation with the WV Division of

Natural Resources would like to invite hikers and trail

enthusiasts to come out and learn about the Allegheny Trail,

West Virginia’s longest distance hiking trail.

The Allegheny Trail is over 300 miles long following the

Allegheny Highlands of the two Virginia’s beginning at the

Mason Dixon line in Preston County WV in the north to

Monroe County WV in the south where it joins the

Appalachian Trail. The trail passes through four state parks,

two state forests, and three national forests over its course

with shelters and scenic locations scattered throughout.

The WVSTA is a nonprofit volunteer organization that

exists primarily for the building and maintaining of the

Allegheny trail along with numerous other hiking trails in

WV and we encourage any group or individual to join us on

our trail building, maintenance, or social events.

So, if you are looking for a great hike through a diversity of

woodland settings in the beautiful Allegheny Highlands let

this be your first stop.

Light refreshments will be served.
