Evening at Wallace Hartman Preserve

Donated to the West Virginia Land Trust by Dolly Wallace Hartman, this preserve of more than 50 acres protects the forested upper watershed of Lick Branch, a minor tributary of the Kanawha River near Charleston, West Virginia, in central Kanawha County. The preserve is owned and managed by the Kanawha County Parks & Recreation but is protected from development under a conservation easement held by the .

Two hiking and biking trails wander through the preserve, following water courses and ascending to a ridge above the city. Trail access and parking are provided along Adrian and South Ruffner roads. Several small waterfalls drop along the course of Lick Creek and its tributaries.
