The 2018 Trek will be the weekend of October 5-8
The West Virginia Scenic Trails Association, Inc,
(WVSTA) developed and continues to maintain the State’s first
long-distance hiking trail----the 300 mile Allegheny Trail.
WVSTA has over 20 years of experience conducting
backpacking fund raising events, and would like to invite you
to participate this years 3-day Trek
TREK Weekend 2018
Save the Date: Columbus Day Weekend October 5-8
Has anyone ever said to you to go take a hike? Perhaps not but today the West Virginia Scenic Trails Association is offering you that opportunity in one of the most scenic areas of West Virginia. This year TREK weekend will be based out of Watoga state park with a new format. Hikers will now have the choice of our usual long distance 25 mile backpacking experience along the Allegheny Trail or taking shorter less strenuous day hikes in or near Watoga and returning to the park each evening. Both hiking groups will be lead and fully supported by WVSTA volunteers during their hikes.
Watoga state park and this new format were chosen for TREK 2018 for a variety of reasons. Watoga has been both a friend and supporter of the WVSTA for many years, and one of if not the finest of all the state parks in WV with the Allegheny trail passing directly through the park. By offering hikers the conveniences and amenities of staying in this beautiful park (if they choose) we hope to make TREK weekend something more appealing to all age groups and hiking abilities. For more information about Watoga and to make reservations visit www.wvstateparks.com with a little heads up that cabins fill quickly so don’t hesitate to make reservations.
October seems like a long way off now but before you know it the green leaves of summer will be changing to the reds and yellows of fall and what better way to enjoy them than hiking in the mountains of Pocahontas County, WV. Hope to see you there.
