While looking to kill an hour during our trip through West Virginia we found Beartown State park. It was a perfect spot to stop, stretch our legs, and see some cool natural wonders.
This board walk trail steers you through a maze of Giant rocks made of Droop Sandstone. At times the walls are high above your head, other times you are looking down at from the tops of the high rocks. Naturally forming “Pitts” are found in the stone along the way and some are deep enough to crawl into.
The kids loved this little trail, they said it was their favorite of the whole trip (probably because they only had to walk for 20 minutes). The park was very quiet and well maintained. We have nothing but good stuff to say about West Virginia; as always we cannot wait to come back.
