I am interested in day hikes in the mountains of West Virginia. Can anyone recommend what some of the most scenic places to hike are ?
WV is a wonderful place to visit. Last Fall we took our church youth group to Seneca Rocks. It's a very easy hike with a rewarding view at the top. I got some of the most amazing pictures that day. The fall colors were stunning!
Dolly Sods is also in that area. I don't know anything about hiking trails but I would think that you could do a search and get some info on Dolly Sods.
Also nearby is Blackwater Falls where I know there are some very easy hiking trails.
Coopers Rock State forest is amazing. Some of the best spots are the overlook (Coopers Rock), Henry Clays Iron Furnace, Rock City, and also Ravens rock (even though Ravens Rock has since broken off and fallen down the mountain!).
