Unpaved Hiking Trails

Many of the original trails traveled by Earl W. Oglebay in the early 1900s have been restored and groomed into hiking trails. Today, guests can explore these historic trails and take in majestic views of Oglebay’s landscape. Oglebay’s trail system is comprised of the Hardwood Ridge, Falls Vista, Brooks, Bridle, Serpentine, Thoreau, Habitat Discovery, Roosevelt, and Driehorst Trails.
