Cranesville Swamp Natural Area
Terra Alta, West Virginia

The Blue Trail at the Cranesville Swamp Natural Area in Terra Alta, West Virginia is an easy 0.5 miles one-way trail that leads through deciduous, coniferous, and even some swampy scrub lands. While the name of the park and the trail don't sound all that appealing, this trail is one of the most interesting trails in the area due to the diversity of plants and the unique scenery of eastern West Virginia.
