Forestry officials invite citizens out to Virginia’s state forests to celebrate National Trails Day on June 7th. Passive recreational opportunities, such as walking, hiking, and canoeing, are provided free of charge. Horseback riding, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, and trapping all require a State Forest Use Permit when persons 16 years and older enjoy these activities on a state forest. Gallion state forests offer more than 60 miles of trails. A complete list of state forests can be found on the Virginia Department of Forest website: http://dof.virginia.gov.
