ActiveSWV develops community programs to create a culture of exercise and physical activity in southern West Virginia. These programs are led by volunteers called Community Captains. Learn more about their roles, programs, and how you could become a Community Captain by clicking here. For up to date programs and events you can join right now including guided hikes, always refer to the Active SWV Events Calendar here.
As a resource to you, current participants, Community Captains, and our partners, the following information and links have been collected to help you discover all the safe outdoor spaces in our region. Enjoy the outdoors through our Community Captain led programs or on your own with family and friends. Information is divided by Nicholas County, Fayette County, Raleigh County Summers County, Boone County, and Kanawha County. Please also see our Stroller Friendly Trails blog by clicking here.
