The Beautiful State Park With The Oldest Trees In West Virginia

It’s hard to go wrong with any of West Virginia’s great state parks, but there’s one park that’s especially fitting for our state’s Wild and Wonderful nickname. Cathedral State Park is the largest virgin timber tract remaining in West Virginia.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
