Sleepy Hollow to Martin Ridge Trail Loop Professional Review and Guide
"This is a wonderful hike along a mountain stream that has a hidden waterfall and an amphitheater of sandstone cliffs. Named after four nearby counties—Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, and Mingo—Cabwaylingo State Forest is a gem in western West Virginia. Deep hollows and thickly forested ridge tops combine to make trails magical.
There are 12.5 miles of hiking trails to explore. Springtime in the forest brings anglers to the trout-stocked waters of Twelvepole Creek, while hopeful hunters pack the cabins during the various hunting seasons. The Civilian Conservation Corps originally built up the 8,123-acre forest in the 1930s. Many of the structures the CCC built, including the Tick Ridge Fire Tower, still exist today. Special attractions: Waterfall, cliffs, deep sleepy canyons, white-tailed deer."
