Minie Ball to Overlook Trail Circuit - Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Bring the whole gang to Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park, because there really is something here for everyone: the site of one of the largest Civil War battles in West Virginia for the history buff; 4.0 miles of well-maintained footpaths for the hiker; and a playground, picnic area, and overlook tower above the Greenbrier River Valley for a family outing.

Combine the park trails for an easy hike that passes by a small mountain bog, scenic overlooks, Civil War–era bunkers, a bear den, a spring, and a rock escarpment."
