Explore Beartown State Park

Beartown Rocks SP Walking Loop - Search Nearby - Added by Elyse Clark

Beartown State Park is a small, but wonderful West Virginia state park that has a short boardwalk trail through interesting sandstone formations.

From Rt. 219 about 7 miles south of Hillsboro, West Virginia, there are well-marked signs for Beartown State Park. This narrow road winds about a mile until the small parking area for the state park.  

The boardwalk trail starts to the left of the bathrooms, and it is encouraged to walk the trail in a counter-clockwise direction, while reading the interpretive signs. 

There are many rocks and crevices to explore along the path, and once finished, have a picnic at the park or explore some of the other parks in the area such as Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park.

Find Your Version of Heaven!

Each step away from the churn and burn of the daily routine is a step closer to the place you belong. The place full of mystery, wonder and surprise. A remote, placid lake. A world-class trout stream. A luxury cabin in the mountains. In West Virginia, you’ll feel far away from everything. And a little closer to heaven.
