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 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/

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!
