Kanawha Boulevard Trail Description

This walking and biking path runs through the heart of West Virginia's state capital, Charleston. The trail sits right on the north bank of the Kanawha River, offering panoramic river views right from downtown. The paved path also connects to parks and to some of Charleston's most prominent landmarks.

The trail begins on Patrick Street and heads south along Kanawha Boulevard, ending at 35th Street. The West Virginia State Capitol Complex is located across Kanawha Boulevard from the southern end and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The complex includes the gold-domed capitol building and the West Virginia Governor's Mansion.

Between the Patrick Street Bridge and Magic Island Park, the trail has been upgraded to a two-lane cycle track with a pedestrian path, a much more spacious option for cyclists than the segment south of Magic Island, which remains a narrow asphalt path.

The trail is part of the Kanawha Trestle Walk and Bikeway system, which will include a rehabbed former railroad bridge.

Parking and Trail Access

There is parking at the Patrick Street Bridge end of the trail, and additional parking for Magic Island Park can be found across Kanawha Boulevard under the I-64 bridge. Cyclists will appreciate the bike repair station at Magic Island.
