Railroad Grade Trail- Canaan Valley State Park | West Virginia Rails To Trails


This trail follows the base of Canaan Mountain and passes through hardwood forest.  Several small streams cross the trail.

 The trail system within Canaan Valley Resort State Park is diverse as well as interesting. Many different features can be seen including northern bog and heath barren plant communities. A primary intent of the State Park is to preserve and protect the natural resources contained within its boundaries.

Trail descriptions indicate special features, access, length, difficulty and allowable uses. Loop trails return to the original starting point. Single trail segments do not return to the original starting point, but may be combined with other trails segments to form a loop.
