Resort Activities

Wild Summertime Fun at a West Virginia Mountain Resort

As winter snow gives way to the blossoms of flowering trees, the mild mountain summers make tennis, golf, swimming, and hiking easy and comfortable. Our picturesque mountain cabins are surrounded by 18 miles of trails – in wetlands and northern hardwood forests – as well as open meadows, abundant with wildlife. Enjoy mountain biking, scenic chairlift rides, hiking, and our world-class golf course. With the Allegheny Mountains serving as your backdrop, nature lovers can enjoy over 200 species of birds, 600 types of wildflowers, and a forest full of wildlife – including deer greeting you at the entrance.

Hiking & Biking – Hit The Trails!

[one_half first]

If you love to bike, Canaan Valley Resort State Park is perfect for you! The park offers 18 miles of marked trails through woodlands, meadows, hills and streams, many of which are linked with hundreds of miles of marked trails in the 1,000,000 acre Monongahela National Forest. Most trails are open to mountain-bikers as well. Whether you come in spring, summer or fall, you’ll discover this is a very special place for bird watching, wildlife sightings, plant discoveries and star-gazing. A new regional hiking/mountain- biking trail guide shows 150 miles of trails for your pleasure. *Helmet rental included in bike rental.

Touring bike rentals are available at the Nature Center daily 9am – 4;30pm.

Geocaching! You are the search engine.

[one_half first]

Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capability of a GPS unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All the visitor is asked to do is if they get something they should try to leave something for the cache. Currently, we have 5 hidden caches on site. Rental units & map coordinates available at the Beech Club. Deposit required when renting GPS System.

Daily: 9am – 4:30pm (year round activity)
