Mountainous West Virginia is widely known for its natural beauty and the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve in the southern part of the state. While many people may choose to take in West Virginia’s famed attractiveness by raft or mountain bike, perhaps the best way to see the Mountain State is on one’s own two feet. Read on to learn about some of the best waterfront trails in West Virginia.
West Virginia offers visitors a variety of outdoor activities in which to participate. However, we’d argue the best way to see The Mountain State is by hiking its many trails while taking in views of the state’s gorgeous bodies of water. There’s just something so refreshing about being near the water – whether it be in the form of a serene lake or the frothy rapids of a river. No matter which trail on this list you choose, you are sure to be in for a visual treat! If rock formations – and not water – are more your style be sure to check out the North Fork Mountain Trail in eastern West Virginia. Have you hiked any of the trails on this list?
