The West Virginia Forest Trail That Leads You To An Abandoned Dam Is Quite The Adventure

We recently took West Virginians on a hike through an abandoned village. Today’s journey will lead you on a wonderful trip to another one of the Mountain State’s deserted spots. Put on your hiking shoes and get ready for a surreal experience as we travel through the forest to an abandoned dam.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
