Where to Stay

Mountain Creek Cabins

Get back to nature with a stay in these secluded log cabins that include a hot tub, fireplace, and full kitchen. Plenty of hiking trails outside your door and just minutes from Coopers Rock.


Coopers Rock State Forest

A local favorite, this hidden gem offers 50 miles of hiking trails and a breathtaking 1,200-foot-high overlook that opens into a mile-wide gorge. More than 100 established boulder problems, short trad leads, and top-rope climbs provide ample challenges.


Big Sandy Brews

Get a true taste of Mountaineer spirit with a winery and restaurant that serves WV craft beer. The pub-style food in Bruceton Mills is known for its Buffalo Beef on Weck.


WVU Zipline Canopy Tour

You’ll be 980 feet above sea level at its highest point in the canopy. Four zip lines lead to seven platforms and aerial bridges until your final rappel to the course-terminating platform.


Mountain State Brewing Company

A cold brew and wood-fired gourmet pizza are the perfect end to your day. The bar stools are sawhorses with upgraded seats, and the atmosphere is rustic but friendly. Get a seat on the deck for a view of the river.

Bonus Day Trip

The Cheat Canyon section of the Cheat River is a premier springtime Class V whitewater run. Located in Albright, the canyon boasts 13 miles of unsurpassed wilderness. Fully guided whitewater rafting, kayaking, canoeing, tubing, swimming, rock jumping, rock climbing, paintball, and riverside picnicking.
