Coopers Rock State Forest is a beautiful place. If you like hiking, there are endless trails and caves to explore. Cooper's Rock has a spectacular view overlooking the Cheat River & surrounded by mountains. It's surrounded by breathtaking scenery. I can't wait to go back!
Breathtaking views! If you need a break from all that uphill/downhill hiking then this is the place to go. Any easy trail that leads out to the overlook and is flat. Dogs are permitted but keep leashed as it has drop offs and of course rattle snakes are known to be in this area so stick to the trail. There is a gift shop here and you can get snacks as well. Picnic areas throughout. Just a short 3 miles off of the highway brings you to the overlook parking area.
