To walk though an area that was not touched by glacial ice yet had land as sensitive as tundra was immensely unique. We enjoyed the board walk through the glades in mid October.

We didn't get a chance to stop by the nature center but we loved the trail. The signage and trail were very well maintained and I loved walking through the interesting micro climates and seeing the fall color on the mountains all around. I would love to come back in the spring and see the wild flowers that bloom in... More

Nice scenery. Easy to walk boardwalk, even for a stroller. A little slippery when wet. Visited in fall, but would like to visit in spring for flowers. Very quiet, no car noise, just people!

What a beautiful place and a majestic experience. I can't wait to return. I loved the boardwalk and seeing the natural cranberry bogs. The cranberries were actually bright red and easily visible on our walk thru the Glades. It was an easy stroll with beautiful views of the mountains.

Extremely interesting place, especially considering the typical terrain of the state. The fall colors were beautiful. We enjoyed the boardwalk and seeing all the plants and reading the signs along the way.

You are going back in time to the ice age. Does this make sense with Mother Nature?? Walk the board walk and read the signs. Wow, how wonderful to be in West Virginia. Stop and see this place & take your camera.

The Glades are absolutely gorgeous this time of year- they're a must! We loved being able to walk through several of the different environments and see the cranberries the Glades are named for.

This is a must stop and see during your travels! The walkway through the Cranberry bog was very interesting and showed me botanicals I had not seen before. Amazing this exist here in the mountains.

We were there this past weekend for Labor Day. We really enjoyed it and thought it was beautiful. We were hoping to see a bear though but we would totally go back.

We walked the designated nature trail and it was gorgeous. We saw cranberries, butterflies, lichen, mushrooms, and numerous wildflowers. Absolutely stunning. We wish we had time to hike some of the other rustic trails. As we were leaving, we spied a barred owl. Got some terrific shots of him in a tree. The highlight of our whole trip!
