ALLEGHENY TRAIL MAP WEST VIRGINIA
This scenic trail will be about 300 miles long when completed. Most of the trail is now open for use. It stretches from northern West Virginia, near Coopers Rock State Forest, to a point near the Virginia border in the southeastern part of the state.
The trail is mainly on public lands. A major portion is in Monongahela National Forest, and it also crosses West Virginia’s two other National Forests, plus several state parks and forests. Difficulty ranges from easy to strenuous.
Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed almost anywhere when the trail is on National Forest lands, except near roads or developed areas, and campfires are allowed. Campsites should be at least 100 feet from water sources and the trail. On state and private lands camping is restricted to designated sites.
