Cross Country Skiing:

Coopers Rock


Coopers Rock consists of intermediate and more advanced ski terrain on most of the trails. Some downhill sections require a lot of skill. Great beginner skiing exists on the roadside trail from the front gate to the overlook (3 miles one way). There are some new trails located in between the day use lot and the interstate exit ramp.  These are perfect for learning skills or warming up . You will need 6+ inches of snow to ski on many of the trails due to rocks, sticks, roots, etc. No facilities (in winter) Coopers Trail Map (pdf).


Cross Country Skiing at Coopers Rock (Highland Outdoors)


Coopers Rock is located in northern WV just east of Morgantown.  The road to the overlook area is closed in the winter, so the day use parking area and trailhead is the starting point for all trips (Google directions below).
