Description

The Polls Plateau Trail is the perfect option for those wishing to enjoy the peacefulness of remote West Virginian hardwood forests. Follow the trail from its junction with the Kates Plateau Trail, climbing gently through established forests intermittently interrupted by numerous small streams. Along the trail, keep an eye out for an old farmstead once served by the roadbed that this trail now follows.
