Summer is sadly coming to a close, but the weather here in West Virginia is still perfect for a few more relaxing outdoor day trips. Whether you’re in the mood for biking, hiking, fishing, or a little bit of everything, our hometown has access to plenty of lovely natural locations that make for ideal day-long getaways.
Here are a few of our favorites day trips near Princeton.
Pinnacle Rock State Park
Pinnacle Rock is a strangely beautiful and oddly enormous sandstone structure towering at 3,100 feet above sea level. Around the rock, there are miles of easy hiking trails and picnic points, promising a delightful day for “outdoor adventurers” of any level.
Brush Creek Falls
Park your Mitsubishi in the Brush Creek Nature Preserve lot and walk just over a quarter of a mile to the Falls, and you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported into the true wilderness. The Falls are beautiful, and usually not over-crowded this time of year; it’s the perfect place to get your family on their feet.
If you’re a Mercer County native, there’s a good chance you’ve been to Glenwood Park before. Glenwood Park is full of hiking trails and is home to a bountiful lake for fishing. If you’re in the mood for a relaxing couple of hours spent in the sunshine, Glenwood Park is the place to go.
