Onwards to Cooper’s Rock State Forest, near Morgantown, WV
.($0) What an incredible place! We went to the main overlook, down to the Underlook Trail (0.2 mile) that goes through impressive rock formations to the spot the park gets its name from – Legend has it that a fugitive hid near what is now the overlook. A cooper by trade, he continued to make and sell barrels from his mountain hideout for years. We went on from there to the Rattlesnake Trail (0.6 mile) which winds along the rocky cliffs (a super fun trail that we had entirely to ourselves). It was cold and windy and sleeting lightly. We continued on to Rock City Trail (0.7 mile) through a mini rock canyon and came back on on side of Eagle Loop Trail (0.25 mile). 100% plan to come back and visit this park again.
