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.
