A Celebratory Hike

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy and the 75th anniversary of the Kanawha Trail Club we’re having a joint celebratory hike! It will be on September 30, starting at 9:00 a.m. in Kanawha State Forest.  We will meet at Dunlop Hollow parking area, shuttle to Trace Fork trailhead, and Hike 7 miles back to Dunlop Hollow on the Mary Ingles Trail.  The Mary Ingles Trail was developed by the Mary Ingles Trail Blazers in honor of a frontier heroine.

Learn about the history of the two anniversary organizations, Kanawha State Forest, and Mary Ingles, and learn about some of the rare bird and wildlife species that call the Forest home. Our plan includes refreshments [sandwiches, chips, drinks] at the end of the hike.

Rumor has it that if the weather cooperates, we may have some living-history interpretation along the way.

Please RSVP by leaving a message with Cindy Ellis, so we can know how many vehicles for shuttle transportation 304 586-4135,  cdellis@wildblue.net
