Carnifex Trail

  It's a long drive from Oak Hill to Carnifex Trail but it sure is a nice trail. Gotta get out of the city man, and if you happen to be in Nicholas County of West Virginia, Carnifex Trail is a great local trail for doing a bit of leg stretching. If you come at the right time of year, Meadow River offers some glorious whitewater. A tour to Pillow Rock Rapids will fill your spirit with nice feelings; there are some tremendous whitewater spots on Gauley River. If
    you came to camp Summersville Lake Retreat is a glorious place to do that; there are plenty of people from Mount Lookout here at Carnifex Trail. There's so much to do here at Carnifex Trail that you need to camp here for a while,
Wilderness RV Campground is a delightful site for that. There's some flowing water nearby, Meadow River is a stream you can go to while here. A great place like Babcock State Park next to Carnifex Trail is too tremendous to leave out, and Staton Branch is near Carnifex Trail and is always a diversion to check out. If only every location had this much outdoors cool things, what a great globe it would be. Put some time aside to spend at Lost Paddle Rapids if  
you're here at Carnifex Trail. Carnifex Trail is a pretty wet place commonly with a great deal of rainfall.
