West Virginia is a forested state, good for hiking. The Allegheny Trail largely lies in West Virginia (270 out of 330 miles). The Tuscarora Trail has some 66 miles in this state.
The state also has a share of the American Discovery Trail, the Eastern Continental Trail and the Great Eastern Trail.
By far the largest wilderness in West Virginia is the Monongahela National Forest. Second best would be the George Washington National Forest, in the east, bordering on Virginia.
