      Located just seven miles south of Charleston,
      this Kanawha State Forest’s close proximity to the
      heavily populated Kanawha Valley has made it a
      recreational haven. Some of the state’s most popular
      picnic areas are here, along with significant hiking and
      mountain biking opportunities. Kanawha’s swimming
      pool and playground attract families during the
      summer season, and the fully equipped campground is
      one of the few in the Charleston area.
      The 9,300-acre forest is noted among naturalists for
      its diverse wildflower and bird populations. Rich cove
      forest sites provide nesting habitat for 19 species of
      wood warblers, a feature that draws birders from as far
      away as Canada.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
