Railroad Grade Trail- Holly River State Park | West Virginia Rails To Trails


Begins where Wilderness Trail crosses Crooked Fork. As the name implies, this trail travels an old railroad grade. You may then walk the road back to the park headquarters. In one area, this trail winds through some interesting rock formations.

 The dense forests of Holly River State Park provide guests with a natural feeling of peaceful solitude. Located near the center of the state in Webster County, it is far from the hustle and bustle of city life making it a perfect vacation getaway.

Holly River is the second largest park in the West Virginia park system with a total of 8,101 acres. Nestled in a narrow valley, the park is surrounded by heavily forested mountains some reaching heights of over 2,800 feet.

In the midst of this woodland paradise, park guests will find a myriad of recreational opportunities. Playing tennis, surrounding yourself  with nature on one of the hiking trails, or just soaking up the sun by the swimming pool–all of these spell Holly River State Park.

Holly River State Park is open, however the cabins and campground are seasonal and not available for rental in winter months.  The park office takes phone calls for reservations for dates cabins, campsites and picnic shelters are open.
