Moon Rocks Hike

September 25


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to walk on the moon? If so, come join Canaan Valley State Park guides for a hike to do just that! A new hike has been added to the 2021 Guided Hike Schedule.

This trail is the Moon Rocks Trail located at the Yellow Creek Natural Area, an 860-acre public preserve owned and managed by the West Virginia Land Trust” in Davis WV. This trail includes massive formations of “moon rock” sandstone bedrock some 480 million years old as well as wetland areas that give way to areas of hardwoods. The hike is approximately 4 miles long and is considered to be strenuous. A shuttle bus will take us to our destination and bring us back to the main lodge.

Please wear waterproof hiking boots or shoes, the trail may be wet, muddy with rocks and roots. On our return to the resort, we will have scheduled stops at local breweries to partake in the local craft beers. This activity begins at 9:00 a.m.

Hike fee is $15 per person, all beverage purchases are not included in this price and are the
responsibility of the participants. All participants of this hike must be 21 years of age to participate. Proof of age with a valid photo ID is required! Registration form and guided hike info is available at https://www.canaanresort.com/events/moon-rocks-hike/2021/09/25/
