Snake Hill Wildlife Management Area
Day Hike, West Virginia Sierra Club
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 poles recommended. Preregister with the leader.
