Coopers Rock State Forest
Coopers Rock State Forest is a brief drive east of Morgantown, West Virginia. I visited there recently on a brief whirlwind family visit.
The area is high above a river valley, which leads there are great views. That also makes it popular. The parking areas were jammed when I headed out there with my mother, older sister, and her boyfriend. The viewpoints up high are pretty accessible, but for some reason I took almost no photos from there. The real curiosity was the rock formations below. We had a nice picnic, and then Joe and I took a brief hike that skirted below the highest cliffs. Later, my sister Hannah and I embarked on a different trail. Great rock formations were everywhere. Coopers Rock is a great place to visit, and I will cherish the memories I was able to share with parts my family I don’t see often enough. Never enough time!
