Kanawha Trace Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Backpacking without the backpack? This is a dream come true on the 31.8-mile Kanawha Trace Trail. Perhaps nowhere else in West Virginia can you tackle a fully supported long-distance trail with only a day pack, complete with overnight shelters, potable water, stream crossings via footbridges, and even a 238-foot tunnel routing you underneath the highway.
Members of the Tri-State Area Council of Boy Scouts of America will shuttle you to and from the trail and even stash your provisions in shelters along the way. This diverse path takes you along roadways and past homes, but for the most part it winds its way along lush stream bottoms, over 300-foot-tall ridges, and through dense forest."
