This hike is an easy loop to a small mountain meadow and back. Nestled at the base of Cacapon Mountain is Cacapon Resort State Park. At 2,300 feet, Cacapon Mountain is the tallest peak in the Eastern Gateway region. Hikers can scale the ridges of Cacapon Mountain on the park’s 17.25 miles of trails. If you need a day off from hiking, the “resort” state park offers swimming and fishing in the park lakes, horseback riding, and an eighteen-hole golf course. Special Attractions: Blueberry-filled forests, mountain meadow.

It was a nice walk in the woods, and that was about it. There is a mistake in the guidebook -- the trail starts near Cabin 22, NOT near Cabin 24. Also, some of the trail intersections were not well marked (fortunately, most intersections were well marked).

Really nice walk,i am not sure I could categorize it as a hike, :) but know the other trails before you try another, made the mistake of going up the Cameron trail and we will be hurting for days!
