The Easy 0.6-Mile Douglas Falls Trail Will Lead You Through The West Virginia Forest

West Virginia is a state well known for its unmatched natural beauty and plethora of outdoor activities available to visitors. One place to experience both of these offerings is Monongahela National Forest in the eastern part of the state. Among other things, this roughly 900,000-acre woodland offers tourists a wide range of hiking trails geared toward every skill level. If you’re looking for a more easy-going excursion, we recommend the Douglas Falls Trail in the northern part of the forest approximately three miles south of the town of Thomas.

Walking the Douglas Falls Trail is an excellent way to see the Mountain State’s natural history (the falls and forest) and local history (the coke ovens that dot the landscape) without too much effort. Plus, when you are done with this trail there are several others in the area (albeit of varying levels of difficulty) including ones that lead you to Albert Falls and Kennedy Falls.
