Canaan Valley Resort State Park - Blackwater RIver Trail - Hiking
The Blackwater River Trail is a secluded, but easily accessible trail that follows the Blackwater River through the wetlands of Canaan Valley Resort State Park.
Destination Distance From Downtown
This trail is fairly easy, but it does have a few short downhills that require some effort.
Time To Complete
This 1-mile trail is a short loop that you can hike quickly, but you will want to leave time to stop and check out the views.
Although trails in the park are open year-round, be prepared for wet, damp, or slippery trail conditions when there is heavy rain. Damp fall conditions can make the ground slick with fallen foliage. Winter snowfall can make trails more difficult to navigate and also make tree roots slippery.
