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.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
