Best Viewed In Winter, This West Virginia Waterfall And Ruin Are A Perfect Pair

When you think about going for a hike in West Virginia, you might tend to assume that spring, summer, or fall is the best time to do so. And while those seasons all have their own merits, there are some hikes through the thick, lush Appalachian forest that are best accomplished in winter, after the leaves have fallen and the undergrowth on the forest floor has died back.

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:
