There are three options for the First Day Hike at Kanawha State Forest:
1. 4 1/2 mile hike on the CCC Snipe/Mossy/Teaberry Trails for those who prefer a moderate hike.
2. 1 1/2 mile hike on CCC Snipe/Shrewsbury for those who prefer a shorter, easy hike.
3. 1/4 mile walk on the Spotted Salamander Trail with Carl McLaughlin which will cover the history of the rail lines once operating in the forest. This will be an easy walk on a wheelchair-accessible trail, so it would be great for those with limited mobility, hikers with small children, and all railroad buffs.
Hikes will begin at 1 PM in front of the future park headquarters at Camp Kanawha (former pool complex).
*Wear sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing. Hot chocolate will be available after the hikes. Donations always welcome!
