Big Woods Trail

The Big Woods Trail is named for the area known as 'Big Woods' during the 1900s. This trail passes through dense hardwood forest where the area's prime timber was frequently logged. The last logging operations were done here in the 1950s, so much of what you see today is 'new' growth timber. This moderate difficulty, 1.2 mile multi-use trail, is a connector between the Glenora and Turkey Run trails. There are some changes in elevation that may present a challenge for bikers and hikers. This trail passes by a small cove where observant users may spot signs of beaver activity. From west on I-64, take Exit 159 at Gum Springs. Take Rt. 522 north for 11 miles until you reach the village of Cuckoo. Stay on Rt. 522 until you reach Mineral. Turn right at the light to stay on Rt. 522 north and stay on the road for six miles to the intersection just before Dickinson Store. Take a right there onto Rt. (New Bridge Road) and travel eight miles. You'll cross a bridge. When you get to Rt. 601 (Lawyers Road), turn left and go three miles. The park sign will be on your left. Traveling south on Rt. 522, it's best to go past the state park sign at the Rt. 612 intersection and, instead, stay on Rt. 522 for eight miles. At that point, you'll see Dickinson Store. Just beyond that, turn left onto Rt. 208 east. Stay on that road for eight miles. You'll cross a bridge. When you get to Rt. 601 (Lawyers Road), turn left and go three miles. The park sign will be on your left.
