Before the turn of the century, West Virginians were drawn to the natural beauty of the Middle Fork River and its surroundings. This area is now Audra State Park, a heavily wooded riverside campground that continues to awe visitors.

It was an easy to follow trail. I recommend starting on the upper alum cave trail first and then coming down the hill. We did it opposite and wish we would have done the hard part first. It's overgrown in some places, trail is still easy to follow. There's plenty of places to swim at the beginning, water is beautiful. Most of the trail follows the river. Very Peaceful and not too much traffic when we went on a Saturday afternoon. We wore tennis shoes, but hiking boots wouldn't be overkill bc of the rocks in some areas. We will be back

My wife, four children and I all enjoy hiking this trail. The river is beautiful and the surrounding scenery is spectacular! We have hiked it several times. Fun to swim in the river too.

Absolutely beautiful. Ran through tunnels of rhododendrons with beautiful river roaring ever-present

Went around the cave trail which is a loop (started on upper cave trail and ended in the lower trail). Overall it was an absolutely beautiful trail. You can swim in the river which is really clear and nice. I recommend bringing water shoes, a bathing suit, and also try the hike. The total loop took me about 2 hours and I was going slow.

Very accessible and easy. I especially enjoy Audra in winter when enormous icicles have formed.

Audra is beautiful, and the park has a wonderful campground. The park ranger was very accommodating and helpful. The river has nice, flat rock beds to swim in. Definitely recommend visiting!
