Arden is a small, unincorporated community located along the Tygart Valley River in north-central West Virginia. It's only 8 miles from the town of Philippi, which was the scene of the first land battle of the Civil War, and so the entire area around Arden is filled with history. The Blue and Gray museum in Philippi holds many interesting battle artifacts and several of the Wars battlefields are within an easy day trip. Arden was named in 1775 by the Quaker Jacob Moon after the district of Arden in Warwickshire, England. Previously built up along a stretch of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad tracks, Arden is situated between two landmark rock formations, Hells Gate and Devils Den. Many whitewater enthusiasts shoot the shallow rapids of the Tygart Valley River through this pristine section of the valley. The Tygart Valley River is a tributary of the Monongahela River. Activities on the river include kayaking, canoeing and rafting. The Tygart is also excellent for fishing, and called "one of the state's hottest places to catch big muskies" by West Virginia Game & Fish Magazine.

Arden Weather & Climate

The extreme eastern portion of West Virginia ,where West Virginia, Maryland and Virginia meet, generally has a humid continental climate. This means warm to hot, humid summers and cool to cold winters, increasing in severity with elevation. However, the weather in all parts of the state is subject to rapid changes. Slightly more than half the rainfall occurs from April to September. In addition to persistent cloudy skies caused by the damming of moisture by the Alleghenies, West Virginia also experiences some of the most frequent precipitation in the nation. Snow usually lasts only a few days in the lower sections but may persist for weeks in the higher mountain areas. However, severe weather is somewhat less prevalent in West Virginia than in most other eastern states, and it ranks among the least tornado-prone states east of the Rockies.
