Description

Added by Jake Sells

Enjoy a stroll down a wooden boardwalk in the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge amongst abundant wildlife and active rehabilitation projects.

A free entrance and parking area for about a half dozen cars off Freeland Road features this quick adventure for all ages. The Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge and Freeland Boardwalk offers a variety of wildlife and environments like Ponds, Wetlands, Forests, and a natural limestone spring.

Also a popular birding trail, the information kiosk near the parking lot offers maps and guides with checklists including dozens of native birds, and other animals such as beavers, deer, and reptiles. 

The trail is an easy half mile loop but offers an educational experience much beyond the walk.

Reviews

I'm pretty sure this is a migratory zone, but either way you get a lot of opportunities to see birds. You can usually find plenty of birdwatchers here.
