History

Stonewall Resort State Park is one of West Virginia’s newest state parks. The park and lake were completed in 1990 as a project of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which purchased the property to build a flood control dam. The lake and state park are named after Confederate General Stonewall Jackson, who was born in Clarksburg and raised in nearby Jackson’s Mill. Since 2002, Stonewall Resort has been operated by a private developer in partnership with the state.

Trails

Autumn Laurel Brooke Trail

This trail starts near the cottages just on the other side of the causeway and runs along the lakeshore until it ascends Chipmunk Point. The trail passes through habitat for deer, turkey, squirrels, chipmunks, birds and box turtles. (Turtle Shell Spring at the top of the hill is named for the abundance of turtle shells found in the area.)
Distance 1.5-mile loop
Difficulty Moderate

Hevener’s Orchard Trail

This trail starts near the Welcome Center at the resort entrance and makes a gradual ascent about 200 feet, where it meanders through a meadow before its descent. The meadow is a good location for viewing wildflowers and a variety of wildlife.
Distance 3.2 miles
Difficulty Moderate

Chipmunk Point Hike

This trail is an offshoot of the Autumn Laurel Brooke Trail. When Autumn Laurel Brook begins its ascent, continue on a mostly level grade overlooking the water to the Chipmunk Point peninsula. The area is prime viewing for hawks and other birds of prey due to its remote location.
Distance 1 mile
Difficulty Easy

Cairns Trail

This trail starts near the cottages on the other side of the causeway and runs along the lake shore at a gentle grade before ascending 200 feet to a level bench near the ridge. The trail is marked with stone cairns of unknown origin; some theorize they were created by Native Americans or early white settlers. A large, upright stone about a mile from the trail head shows evidence of human tooling and has embedded bullets.
Distance 2.6 miles
Difficulty Moderate to Difficult

Lakeside Nature Trail

This gently rolling trail starts at the lodge and follows along the lake before crossing the park road and meandering up and back along Carrion Bay. The trail offers scenic views of the lake and quiet places in one of the more remote areas of the park.
