Description

The Gwinn Ridge Trail is a fantastic option for runners looking to experience West Virginia's characteristic hardwood forests. Navigating along the ridgeline on which the trail is situated, visitors can't expect much in the way of distant views due to the dense forest surrounding the trail. However, what this trail lacks in viewpoints, it makes up for in color. Visit this trail during the fall and become immersed in the rich autumn tones for which West Virginia is known.

Along the trail, expect a narrow dirt tread with moderate to demanding climbs and descents.
