This 1.2 mile point-to-point trail at the Cranberry Wilderness in Hillsboro, West Virginia leads from the Cranberry Glades parking to the northern terminus of the Cow Pasture Trail (or vice versa). I started tracking this right outside of the end of the Cow Pasture Trail, but this trail goes much further north and runs through the entire Cranberry Wilderness.
Nothing special or interesting to see; however, this road has a gate ~0.5 miles south of the northern terminus for the Cow Pasture Trail. There's also a parking lot right at that gate.
Camping: There are backpacking shelters along this trail too, just 1.5 miles north of the Cow Pasture Trail. If you plan to go beyond the Cow Pasture Trail, you'll need to do so on foot.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account.
