Snake Hill Wildlife Management Area Day Hike
Acquired in 1996 by the State of WV, the SHWMA is across the Cheat River Gorge from Cooper Rock State Forest. This 4.5 mile loop hike is rated moderate "plus" intensity with elevation changes that connect with several scenic views including
Table Rock, Cheat View, and several lesser known views along Snake Hill's canyon rim. Trail conditions vary from poorly established with vegetation overgrowth, rocky under footing and blow downs, to clearly established paths and gas well roads. Recent logging from the DNR will be evident. Hiking boots with good tread and hiking pole recommended. Preregister with the leader.
