Hiking WV: Canaan Valley State Park

We decided to take a long holiday weekend, and get into the woods for some much needed downtime.

Friday was mostly rain, so it was more a series of short walks than a hike, but we did do my favorite trail.

Location: Canaan Valley State Park
Trail: Blackwater River Trail
Distance: 0.9 miles
Elevation: 3208-3260 feet



Then we mostly drove around and took short walks when it wasn’t raining.



Of course we stopped by Blackwater Falls, where the river was running quite high


Here’s the stream crossing at Canaan Loop Road just past Lindy Point.


I’m not sure what kind of vehicle could have driven across on this day, but it was comforting to watch and listen to the water.
