Blackwater Falls State Park
Blackwater Falls State Park showcases its abundant beauty all-year-round, but in the wintertime, those Falls are simply ethereal. With these snow-covered waterfalls, twenty miles of trails and a sledding magic carpet, you might just want to bundle up for a full day of exploration. You’ve got a lot of snowy ground to cover.
Canaan Valley Resort State Park
Explore Canaan Valley Resort State Park by foot, snowshoe or skis. No matter your mode of transportation, the magic of winter in West Virginia will likely stop you in your tracks. There’s just something about those snow-coated evergreens. It’s Almost Heaven.
Babcock State Park
Imagine that you are stepping into a postcard, and you’ll find yourself in the iconic Babcock State Park. The park’s Glade Creek Grist Mill retains its renowned beauty every season, and it serves as the perfect backdrop for a wintery photo; however, the Mill will take up most of your spotlight.
Pipestem Resort State Park
Experience the bliss of winter in the snowy Pipestem Resort State Park. Snow-dusted trees cover these rolling hills to create photo-worthy moments and life-long memories. Grab your snow boots, skis or sled, and you will be ready to bask in the park’s 4,050 acres of wintery landscape.
