  • Beartown is a must see state park. With its unique geological formations, I felt taken into a fantasy world. The boardwalk is a quick and easy hike.  more »
  • One of the most unique geologic areas in WV. Great to visit anytime of year. There are walkways all through the area.  more »
  • Such a cool experience! This is a great spot for a short day trip, you can probably spend a few hours at most exploring around. The geography is pretty incredible and very unique. Plenty of parking and when I was here in early summer, it was not crowded whatsoever. It was easy to enjoy the scenery at our pace. It's definitely nice that the entire area is in the dense protection of some large trees, so it's very cool even on hot days. Well worth the trip!
  • Very cool rock formations in a forest setting. I visited in August and did only part of the trail but saw a variety of plants and mushrooms. Lots of steps up and down but there’s also a handicap-accessible trail. Small parking area with restrooms. Planning to go back when I have more time.
