Coopers Rock State Forest is a beautiful place. If you like hiking, there are endless trails and caves to explore. Cooper's Rock has a spectacular view overlooking the Cheat River & surrounded by mountains. It's surrounded by breathtaking scenery. I can't wait to go back!

It's a great hiking, spot, with great views if you go to the look out. However its a popular spot, and can get a little crowded on weekends. If your more interested in getting away from people. Your better off with Ohiopyle.

Awesome place to hike and enjoy scenic views. There is a rock climbing area and miles of hiking trails. Great place to bring family for picnics or to take people on hiking or walks. They reintroduced rattlesnakes here so be mindful were you step and don't stray off the beaten path without acknowledging the risks. Unlike copperheads rattle snakes can kill you pretty quickly too. Also sometimes can have a mean temper so just be mindful. The sunset from the overlook is beautiful. The pavillions are nice to rent out from family reunions, birthdays, or what have you. Also very neat gift shop with essentials just remember they close at 5pm I believe. So get there before too late in the even. The staff here are very nice and do a good job keeping the grounds nice and neat. My only complaint is it gets crowded on nice days more so at the over look than anything.

Get off the beaten path a bit and the crowds disappear. Be prepared to fight through the boards if little kids and families in the main areas though. Still a beautiful place that should be experienced by anyone who likes the outdoors. Options for all skill levels and interests.

Wonderful place to hike. I went here in the winter, when the road to the top was closed due to snow and ice. I parked and made the 3 mile hike. The snow covered terrain, with varying shadows cast by intermittent sun through the clouds, was mesmerizing and awe inspiring.
