Hike To The Moon And Back On The Mountwood Trail Network In West Virginia

Commercial space travel seems closer than ever before, but it’s likely still out of reach for most of us. BUT, we don’t need to board a rocket to reach space; we’ve got access to our very own trip to the moon right here in West Virginia!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

To learn more, visit Mountwood Park’s website. Also, especially if you’re going to bike or hike, consider downloading a trail map from the website before you go in case there aren’t any paper copies available when you arrive.

Have you visited Mountwood Park or attended any of the popular events they often host? Which of the many attractions and trails have you done? What would you recommend? Let us know in the comments!

Maybe the Flatwoods Monster was really just trying to reach the moon all along…
