Somebody else said it: This place is a work in progress by a dedicated small staff and volunteers. I visited in November, so didn't see many flowers--a few at the entrance off the roadway.They offer a guided hike or two nearly every month of the year, and I took advantage of one of those. I learned alot, but didn't get... More

This was our visit to the Botanical Garden for a hike. Nice place. We enjoyed the well manicured gravel path (no ticks) and had a nice hike around the loop. There were also some other side trails abutting the main trail. Don't be alarmed if you hear gun shots- there is a gun club nearby. Distracting but not dangerous!

My wife and I went here for my birthday yesterday. They did not have many flowers still in bloom but it was a nice serene place to spend a quiet afternoon.

I took my son for walk on a sunday afternoon. They have the lower parking lot open from 1-4 on Sundays. It was so peaceful and the walk was super easy to do with the stroller!!! They had a volunteer there handing out trail maps and she was so very polite and knowledgeable!!! Will definitely take my little guy back!!!

The Botanic Garden is a somewhat developed Garden. Nice walking paths through field and forest. Not very interpretative -if that is what you are looking for-but an excellent opportunity to experience nature-bring your own field guides. The Garden does have very nice places to just sit-especially if you are willing/able to hike a bit (on trails) to get to them.... More

This is a quiet walking or running trail however it is a steep hill down to the flatter area. Not so bad going down but after walking a bit challenging coming back up. It is a work in progress but a good nature walk.

We've been to the WVBG a couple of times, and really enjoyed it. However, as another reviewer mentioned, the walk downhill is extremely steep and on a loose gravel road. The lower parking area is only open for special events. So that prevents many people who aren't in excellent physical shape (including elderly, pregnant, those in a wheelchair) or those... More

The Botanic Garden is a hidden gem in the Morgantown area. Just a few miles from I-68 and near Cheat Lake, it's a great place to wander through the woods.

This is not a botanic garden like you will find in the big cities. It is still in the infancy stages of development, but are making progress. There is a small perennial garden, and bulbs in bloom in the spring. There is a wetland walkway with informational placards and plenty of trails. It is a beautiful place that I have... More
