Add the Paint Creek Scenic Trail to your West Virginia summer road trip


FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOWK) – The Tri-State has a fertile history dating back hundreds of years and there’s one beautiful area where you can learn about some of it while experiencing a great workout and taking in gorgeous scenery. 

44 miles – that’s nearly the commute distance between Huntington and Charleston on I-64. 

But in eastern Kanawha, Fayette and Raleigh counties, the Paint Creek Scenic Trail is a little-known designated scenic trail for outdoor adventure waiting for you to enjoy! 

“Hiking, biking, of course we have Plum Orchard Lake down here so you have your hunting and fishing there. Everything extends from Tamarack all the way to Pratt. So any of those places you can stop off, you can get a little history lesson,” says William Hughes, the Mayor of Pax in Fayette County.
