Cranesville Swamp Orange Trail

0.3 Miles Easy

Cranesville Swamp Natural Area
Terra Alta, West Virginia

The Orange Trail at the Cranesville Swamp Natural Area in Terra Alta, West Virginia is an easy 0.3 mile one-way trail that leads to/from the Loop Trail at the park. This trail is more-or-less a connector trail to get onto the Loop Trail since that's the best trail in the park; however, this trail has its own features too.

You mostly hike through deciduous forests, but you'll pass through conifers closer to the parking lot. Overall this trail doesn't have much to see, but it's a nice hike regardless. For a better connector trail to the Loop Trail, try the Blue Trail instead.

Dogs are allowed on this trail.
