Just a short drive to South Charleston, you will find some great family fun. Little Creek Park is full of trails, playgrounds, picnic shelters and a Soap Box Derby Track.
Let’s start with the hiking trails. They have three main trails: Little Creek Park Loop Trail, Rock Ridge, and Little Creek Trail. These trails are mostly unknown in the area, so maintaining social distancing is an easy task. The Loop Trail is a favorite of locals. Keep your eye out for the Devil’s Tea Table. It is a beautiful rock formation on this trail. A great place to snap a couple of photos. Pro tip: take extra shoes for the kids. They love playing in the creek that runs along the trails. You will find some little beaches, perfect for getting your feet wet and skipping rocks.
Little Creek is the official home of the Kanawha Valley Soap Box Derby Association. For over 80 years, the races have been taking place. Winners of the regional go on to Nationals in Ohio. They are still planning a couple races at the end of 2020. Keep up to date with their schedule here.
With multiple playgrounds, shelters and a disc golf course, the entire family will have a great day.
