Babcock Hike – Narrow Gauge Trail

February 24 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join Community Captain Lynn to walk the Narrow Gauge Trail in beautiful Babcock State Park. The walk will be approximately 5 miles.
See the best of Southern West Virginia’s parks when you join one of our hikes. Hikes go at a leisurely pace and are led by Community Captains. Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and wear sturdy closed-toe shoes. You are welcome to bring walking sticks/hiking poles for assistance and are encouraged to bring your own water and sunscreen. The length of each hike may vary. Please contact us, or find our Facebook event page for each hike for more details.
All hikes are perfect for grand families, groups with multiple interests, and individuals. All are welcome! Youth are encouraged to attend but must be accompanied by a guardian and the adult must stay on-site during the activity. Trained Community Captains deliver free, beginner-level instructional programs to area parks. Active SWV empowers our community to see outdoor spaces as a place for health and wellness to take place.
Participants will be asked to sign an online waiver found here.
