A horseshoe bend in the North Fork of the Hughes River lends its name to North Bend State Park, which famously adjoins the 72-mile North Bend Rail Trail. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding on the historical rail-trail and on 20 miles of pathway that wander the park are principal attractions, though fishing, boating, camping, and picnicking are as popular.
An outdoor swimming pool, North Bend Lake, and 29-room North Bend Lodge and its restaurant draw visitors year-round. Eight woodland cabins and tent and RV campgrounds along the river are renowned throughout West Virginia as park accommodations.
Visitors often combine a park visit with a journey along the North Bend Rail Trail and a visit to historic towns, such as Cairo, Pennsboro, and Harrisville. The dining room at the park lodge is a favorite eatery.
Directions: North Bend State Park is located near Cairo, West Virginia, and Harrisville, West Virginia, in Ritchie County, in the Heartland Region in north-central West Virginia (WV).
