Explore Beartown State Park

0.6 Miles Total - 50 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally 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.
