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.

The coniferous forests provide for some unique hiking that make it feel like something out of the PNW. Take this trail to get to the Loop Trail at the end, which is by far the best trail at the park.

Dogs are allowed on this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We 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. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes or poking around the site to view ads is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
