Pet Friendly Kanawha State Forest
Kanawha State Forest Kanawha State Forest is a beautiful place with tons of hiking, biking, and horse back riding trails. There are a lot of different levels of trails ranging from easy to hard. It's a pet friendly area. My dog and I love hiking in the woods. Some of the trails have streams or the river running along them . It truly is a beautiful place for you and your animal to bond and plenty of space for them to run off the leach just make sure you watch out for snakes! Wv two poshness snakes are the copper head and the rattle snake and they are out there so pay attention to your dog and were he is smelling. But I have been there probable 50 times and only ever seen one snake. But it's a fun place with lots of activities. They also have an out door pool, good fishing, camp grounds, horse back riding, and shelters to have picnics. My dog loves going hiking here. its by far our favprite place to go on walks in Charleston! just don't forget the tick repellent! See Details
