Now that spring has fully sprung in Charleston, WV, it’s now the perfect time to get outdoors, after the months cooped indoors during the winter. There are many activities around Charleston that lets you enjoy the natural beauty of the land, but there’s no better way to appreciate Nature’s gift than going hiking.
This April, the Kanawha Trail Club has scheduled hikes every weekend, that takes you through rolling hills, ridges, and lakes.
On April 13, the group will be hiking to Charles For Lake in Roane County, an 8-mile moderate hike through several hilly sections. If you’re not free Saturday, you can join them on Sunday, for a hike through rolling hills dotted with spring wild flowers at Mountwood Park near Parkersburg.
The Kanawha State Forest Foundation will hold the annual Osbra Eye Memorial Nature Walks on April 20th. The KTC will be joining the Wildflower Walk, which is an easy hike through the forest. Registration begins on 8:30am, and assembly and departure will be at 9:30am from the area near the old swimming pool.
There will be two other hikes this April, on the 21st at Long Point, Summersville and on the 28th at Chief Logan. The hikes will continue on to May, including a night hike at the Kanawha State Forest.
