  • If you are in the area, stop for a leisurely stroll on a boardwalk, but don't make a special trip here. Perhaps in the spring or summer, when plants are green it is more desirable. It probably is.....  more »
  • The glades are very interesting and neat. The boardwalk needs some serious work. Unlevel in spots, boards broken in spots. Really could use some upkeep.  more »

  • I would live in this clearing. Overwhelmingly quiet and peaceful. We've been to a lot of state parks, and although Watkins Glen is so far the coolest one so far, I wouldn't live there. Give yourself some peace and spend time here.🙃
  • The Cranberry Glades Botanical Area is a beautiful and exotic piece of The Monongahela National Forest absolutely teeming with rare species of trees, plants and wildlife. Going to The Boardwalk there is like a mini-tour all in itself with informative boards and posters filled with interesting facts and figures. This is the perfect excursion for children who want to grow up to study botany and/or zoology and a great trip for the family in general. The bathrooms and picnic areas were very clean and the trails were well maintained. You can't truly say you've been to Wild and Wonderful West Virginia until you've visited the Cranberry Glades.
