Honeymoon Trail

Honeymoon Trail Professional Review and Guide

"A trail system on the eastern end of the park that climbs through an upland hardwood forest. Watoga State Park lies in the heart of the Greenbrier Valley. The Greenbrier River forms the western edge of the park. The wooded backland of the park is a recreational paradise. The park’s lengthy trail system allows for easy leg-stretcher and long, difficult day adventures. Trails meander along fast moving streams and make long difficult climbs through steep, narrow ravines.

The white blazed Honeymoon Trail is wide and easy to follow. The forest along the ridge is composed of dry slope pine and chestnut oak. Blueberry and mountain laurel thrive in the understory. The climb becomes easy, and the trail begins a short descent to a saddle. Large hardwoods such as red oak, black oak, and tulip poplar form the overstory. Special attractions: A small stand of spruce, once one of the dominant species of the West Virginia forest ecosystem."
