Duration: Two days and two nights
Trail hopping in the Alleghenies is equal parts water, forest and a bit of railroad lore, just for kicks. It's a hiker & biker wonderland, with endless trail combinations to explore, and a place for solitude and a bit of sightseeing on the side. Nestled among the valleys, there's even the city of Huntington, a study in the eclectic and named as "the fifth coolest small town in America." Over the river and through the woods and around the Horseshoe Curve … these trails really mix it up, all in the unspoiled wilderness of the Alleghenies and Her Valleys.
After a hard day on the trails, it's worth treating yourself to a great meal at Jethro's. We recommend trying their famous ribs, steaks or specialty seafood dishes. To really reward yourself, order the Peanut Butter Meltaway – it's worth every bite.

Built in 1849, this mansion served as a home to the Baker family. Today, it's looked upon as a beloved community landmark. Back in 2001 an exterior rehabilitation restored it to its original beauty, and if you stop by, they'll be happy to give a look around.
You'll feel like a member of the Continental Army when you step into this Revolutionary War stockade surrounding six log cabins. This fort was built in 1778, and although it's now reconstructed, it still looks the part.
This amusement park has been around since 1894, which makes it one of the oldest in the United States. But don't worry, Lakemont Park still knows how to party. A ride on Leap-the-Dips is an absolute must. It's the world's oldest roller coaster, you know.
