Located on the Eastern Summit of West Virginia's Droop Mountain, Beartown State Park houses an unusual collection of rock formations that remind some visitors of a small city. The results of erosion, huge blocks of Droop and Pottsville sandstone have split apart, creating deep vertical fissures. Some of these cracks open from three feet wide, creating inviting footpaths. These long walkways between the rocks remind Beartown explorers of city streets, lining both sides with miniature skyscrapers.
