Canaan Valley Resort to host September Fall Foliage Hike series

DAVIS — As the fall foliage begins its transformation into what is anticipated to be one of the most vibrant displays in years, Canaan Valley Resort has developed a variety of guided hikes and activities throughout September for guests to experience the amazing beauty of the highest mountain valley in the Eastern U.S. 

“Fall is a special time in Canaan Valley and given our altitude the leaves change much sooner than in the lower elevations,” said Matt Baker, general manager at Canaan Valley Resort. “Our September guided hike series offers a variety of Saturday hikes throughout the month that will take guests’ breath away.”

Baker said the resort will host the new Brew-Hike Thru-Hike on Saturday, September 17th. This 4.5-hour hike features a variety of landscapes and ecosystems as guests will travel through seven of Canaan Valley Resort State Park’s most prominent trails. Once the hike is completed, guests will be treated to a taco bar and local craft beer from Stumptown Ales in Davis, West Virginia.

For those that have ever wondered what it might be like to walk on the moon, the resort will host the Moon Rocks Hike on September 24th. Located at the Yellow Creek Natural Area, an 860-acre public preserve owned and managed by the West Virginia Land Trust in Davis, the trail includes massive formations of “moon rock” sandstone bedrock some 480 million years old. The hike is approximately 4-miles long. Shuttle bus service will be provided from the Main Lodge. The return trip to the resort features scheduled stops at local breweries to enjoy craft beers.

Additionally, from 4-7pm on September 24th, the resort will host a free Fall Photography Workshop. The program will explain the basics of digital photography and provide guests with tips and tricks for capturing a variety of Autumn scenery. Attendees must bring their own DLSR or mirrorless cameras.
