- Rt. 2 Box 285, Charleston, WV 25314, USA
Located just seven miles south of Charleston, West Virginia, this forest’s close proximity to the heavily populated Kanawha Valley has made it a recreational haven. Some of the state’s most popular picnic areas are here, along with significant hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing opportunities. Kanawha’s swimming pool and playground attract families during the summer season, and the fully equipped campground is one of the few in the Charleston area. The 9,300-acre forest is noted among naturalists for its diverse wildflower and bird populations. Rich cove forest sites provide nesting habitat for 19 species of wood warblers, a feature which draws birders from as far away as Canada
