Hike Through An Ancient Forest With 500-Year-Old Trees At Cathedral State Park In West Virginia

Enjoying the great outdoors is one of our favorite things to do in West Virginia. Most people don’t realize the Mountain State is home to a virgin forest filled with enormous trees and wonderful trails – or that you can explore it all in just a single day.

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/

Gas up the car and let’s go!
