The is a very intriguing place. The backcountry has trails if you want to walk or bike, probably even ride your horse. It 's first appearance almost looks spooky staring down the road that looks infinite.
The trail of the Cranberry Glades is also exciting to say the least, not only will you encounter the mountain, but twice during the path where the open field and mountain are, a snake slithered under the boardwalk and once across the boardwalk. It is a nice trail, but proceed with caution. This happened on a wet and rainy day.
The Cranberry Glades is the largest area of bogs, or acidic wetlands, in West Virginia, a unique and exotic ecosystem on 750 acres. This spectacular and beautiful area was established by the United States Forest Service in 1965, to protect and preserve over 60 unique plant species, many of them descended from seeds that took root here over 10,000 years ago.
Note: The video is just an extra look at the country roads of West Virginia during winter. Also check out the slideshow for the botanical area during the summer.
