Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"Located in the figurative “backyard” of the state capital is the 9,300-acre Kanawha State Forest. Included in the 25 miles of trails in the forest is the Polly Hollow to Wildcat Ridge loop that takes you along a swiftly flowing stream, up to a ridgetop with rock outcroppings, and through a forest of mixed hardwoods and hemlocks. This hike travels up Polly Hollow past several rock outcrops to the top of Wildcat Ridge, then down to Davis Creek before looping back around the ridge to the starting point. From the picnic and playground area, look west toward the woods and you will see two trailheads, one for Wildcat Ridge on the left and one for Polly Hollow on the right."
