6 Great Hiking Trails near Huntington, WV

Six Hiking Trails near Huntington West Virginia

As a resident of the area, I've looked high and low for some of the best trails within an hour's drive of Huntington WV.  I know there are some city parks that offer some decent trails, but for my list, I wanted to really take you into the woods, away from the noise of town and where you're least likely to have to share the trail with others.

The River Trail is advertised as a 4 mile single track beginner trail. It is located inside Barboursville Park in Barboursville, WV.  Today was one of those not-so-rare now warm days in late winter. We were completely itching for a new hike in a new location, which is one of the many reasons I love the outdoors.

Blennerhasset Island is a beautiful historical state park located in Parkersburg, WV. During the West Virginia State Naturalist Training Retreat, a tour of the mansion and ground was provided.

The tour's purpose was to showcase the island and the mansion. The mansion was rebuilt from the foundation and eyewitness reports after it burned to the ground.

Are you looking for a sport fish that puts up a fight, one that gives you an adrenaline rush as you reel it in, and has the ability to rip the flesh from your fingers? Look no further than the Bowfin.
