  • Great trails for local Hiking. If you are visiting from out of state, keep in mind that this is West Virginia, don’t expect anything grand or spectacular. The garden itself is kinda small but pretty during full bloom in summer. But the main attraction for me are the trails. I’ve spent hours hiking through the trails and don’t think I’ve visited them all yet. I particularly enjoy going in the fall when the leaves turn colors. It’s gorgeous and not too hot. It’s a nice place to go get some cardio and enjoy nature for a while.
  • This is a pretty cool place. Well defined trails through a beautiful forest. I visited very early spring, so not much to look at, but still very nice. I plant to go again when the plants are in bloom and the foliage is out. They have plenty of parking and the trails are easy to walk.
