Canaan Valley Resort State Park - Trail Running
Quiet and scenic, the 18 miles of trails here give runners of all abilities the perfect place to find peace while getting in a quick workout.
The longest trail in the park is the 3-mile Black Hollow Trail. All others are less than 3 miles, and most are less than 2. However, many of the trails are interconnected and can be combined.
Destination Distance From Downtown
Most of the trails are good for beginners because they are pretty easy to navigate, but a few have more difficult sections and cross several streams. The most difficult trail in the park is the Bald Knob Trail, with an elevation of 4,308 feet.
Time To Complete
On average, most trails take less than an hour to complete. The more difficult trails, like the 2.5-mile Bald Knob Trail, can take longer depending on your experience level and weather.
Although trails in the park are open year-round, damp fall conditions can make the ground slick with fallen foliage, and winter weather can make trails slippery and difficult to follow, with higher elevations becoming dangerous to explore.
