Destination WV: Check out the Elk River Trail for new exploring and adventuring!


Got the itch to explore? A newly designated trail system in West Virginia is taking wild and wonderful to a new level and is just waiting on you to explore.
Work is quickly being exerted to make the Elk River Trail one of the longest rail trails east of the Mississippi River.

37 miles of trail are already open for your next exploration in our region, spanning from the Frametown area in Braxton County all the way to central Clay County, with expansions of the trail into northeastern Kanawha County, including the town of Clendenin, expected by Fall.
