Spring

April into Mid-May is a very slow time in Tucker County.  Take advantage of great lodging pricing at a time when one can feel as though they have Tucker County all to themselves.  Whitewater rafting with Blackwater Outdoor Adventures during this time is special due to the abundant water flow which allows guests to experience rivers not normally run late spring and summer.

Spring in general sees anglers on all of our local rivers, predominantly fishing for Rainbow and Brown trout.  All the rivers are stocked by regional Department of Natural Resources fish hatcheries.  Native trout are also found in the smallest tributaries, making for an incredible adventure that is hard earned.

Annual Canaan Mountain Bike Festival in mid-June brings Mtn Bikers from all over the East Coast for a fun filled four days of pure mtn. biking, clinics, and parties.  Art Spring is a county wide event that brings out Tucker County artists and musicians to celebrate and share their crafts over Memorial Day Weekend.  The West Virginia Wild Flower Pilgrimage meets in early May at Blackwater Falls State Park, a very popular event put on by the Dept. of Natural Resources. 

Cabin fever is over!  Hikers, bikers, birdwatchers, boaters, photographers, etc. are out and about.
