Located on 8,296 heavily forested acres in southern West Virginia, Cabwaylingo State Forest is a beautiful destination to relax and unwind. The forest, located in Wayne County, gets its unique name from the four surrounding counties: (Cab)el, (Way)ne, (Lin)coln and Min(go). Cabwaylingo State Forest was established in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps in an effort to rebuild wooded land in southern West Virginia.

Cabwaylingo State Forest is home to the Cabwaylingo Trail, the first in the Hatfield-McCoy Trail System to be located within a West Virginia State Forest. Here, ATV, UTV, 4×4 and dirt bike riders will find nearly 100 miles of trails, parking for trucks and trailers as well as a trailhead facility with trail permits for sale.
