Otter Creek Trail is a 15.2 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Bowden, West Virginia. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and trail running.
This trail is a wonderful walk back in time to view nature relatively undisturbed.
I have hike the trail 20+ times. Awesome, easy trail. Good places to camp. But, careful for 1) sunning timber rattlesnakes, and 2) high water in the spring or summer (after a big rain).
Make a great 9 mile loop by starting at Condon Trailhead (at the termini of forest road 303) Hike the loop counter clockwise by way of Hedrick Camp trail - Shavers Mountain- Mylius Trail - and finishing on Otter Creek southbound back to the trailhead. And be sure to enjoy some swimming holes along Otter Creek before wrapping up!
you can swim you can camp you can just day hike it. mostly flat
