Hawks Nest Rail Trail Walk
May 25 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Active SWV is proud to announce a new partnership with West Virginia State Parks in the New River Gorge region. This collaboration will bring opportunities to offer other Active SWV programs in the State Parks as well as increase visitors to the beautiful State Parks in West Virginia.
Join Community Captain volunteer, Linda Stein, for a free group hike along Mill Creek on the Hawks Nest Rail Trail in Ansted and Hawks Nest State Park. All are welcome for this four mile family friendly event
Nestled in the heart of whitewater rafting country, Hawks Nest State Park is a 270-acre recreational area with a nature museum, aerial tramway, jetboat rides, hiking trails and one of the most challenging whitewater boating waterways in the nation. Its 31-room lodge offers luxurious rooms, dining and spacious conference and meeting facilities. Located near Ansted in Fayette County, about 10 miles north of the New River Gorge Bridge, Hawks Nest is known for its scenic overlook, which provides a bird’s eye view of the rugged New River Gorge National River below.
Active SWV continues to work with other WV State Parks in our area to schedule more activities. Active SWV hopes these hikes will demonstrate how community members can become Active SWV Community Captains to lead additional physical activity programs in their local State Parks. We invite all ages and abilities to experience a group hike with the goal of finding new Community Captains to continue hikes in each of these parks. Volunteer Community Captain training is provided for free and covers safety, communications, promotion, and certifications. Please check for updates at www.activeswv.org/events.
