Notes:

The Cranberry Wilderness is a wilderness area in the southern part of the Monongahela National Forest in southeast West Virginia, United States. It is located on the back-slope of the Allegheny Front. As well as being wilderness, it is designated as black bear sanctuary. It is called the Cranberry Wilderness because of the cranberry bog in a valley on the south side of the wilderness area, officially designated the Cranberry Glades Botanical Area.
