Stories and history of the lands of West Virginia

Otter Creek Wilderness

Otter Creek Wilderness

The Otter Creek Wilderness is part of the Monongahela National Forest located on the Potomac River, with elevations ranging from 1800 to 3900 feet. There are around 45 miles of trails in the Otter Creek Wilderness; most follow old logging roads or paths. Very few bridges exist across the Creek and crossing can be very difficult and at times even impossible.
