Laurelly Branch Trail Description

West Virginia's Monongahela National Forest offers a wide variety of trails for day or multi-day hikes of varying levels of difficulty, including several trails built on former logging railroad corridors. The Cranberry Wilderness area, which contains the entire drainage of the North Fork of the Cranberry River and the Middle Fork of the Williams River, also features three such rail-trails: the Laurelly Branch Trail, Little Fork Trail and Rough Run Trail.

All three trails offer a rugged hiking experience different from traditional rail-trails; bicycles and motorized vehicles are banned, and equestrian use is discouraged.
