Tomlinson Run State Park (map), in Hancock County, north of Weirton, WV, protects 1,398 acres of woodland along Tomlinson Run in West Virginia's northern panhandle. Its several hiking trails, counted among the best in the region, lead through a mature forest of oak and beech and past waterfalls and towering cliffs. Glades of fern, groves of rhododendron, and the Tomlinson Run Gorge are among the park's natural highlights. Tomlinson Lake and several small fishing ponds are popular with anglers. The park is located less than a mile from the Mountaineer Casino Resort & Race Track, and many casino guests visit in all seasons.
