Nature’s Mountain Playground TM

Pocahontas County West Virginia, set deep in the Allegheny Mountains, separating West Virginia from Virginia is the Birthplace of Rivers.  The Greenbrier, Gauley, Elk, Cherry, Cranberry, Tygart Valley, Williams, and Shavers Fork of the Cheat rivers all begin in these pristine mountains. The only surface water that enters the county does so as precipitation; all other water flows out.  It's a place of crystal clear streams, native brook trout, roaring waterfalls, and a love of our exceptional heritage. 

We invite you to experience the rich history, eloquent beauty, and warm hospitality of Pocahontas County. Find a 941 square mile outdoor recreation paradise where you can ski, fish, hike, hunt, bicycle, camp, motorcycle tour, and renew your connections with family and friends.  We're home to Cass Scenic Railroad State Park, along with four other state parks, and two state forests. If it's outdoor fun you've been looking for - then look no further.
