Hike In The Shade Of The Oldest Trees In West Virginia At This Impressively Biodiverse State Park

In the hot, humid dog days of summer (as well as at any other time of year!), there’s something so refreshing about a hike through a lush, green, shady forest. There are many of those kinds of hikes that fit the bill in West Virginia, but one of the best is found in Cathedral State Park in Aurora.

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. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

To learn more about Cathedral State Park, visit the West Virginia State Parks website. While there’s plenty of hiking at Cathedral, there are no overnight facilities; consider traveling to nearby Blackwater Falls State Park to spend the night!
