Still searching for the perfect fall spot?

Somewhere to enjoy the blaze of colors amid the mountains? Perhaps with a touch of state history thrown in, too?

If so, look no further than historic Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park.

Located in the Greenbrier River Valley not far from Lewisburg, the landmark is part of the Civil War Discovery Trail.

That means it is part of 300 historical sites located in 16 different states, and offers plenty of diversity for individuals as well as families.

History buffs will be especially interested because this is the site of the last major Civil War battle in West Virginia.

But that’s not all.

The park offers a playground, picnic area, hiking trails and a lookout tower that’s the perfect spot to view the Mountain State’s fall foliage.

A well-known state landmark, the lookout tower offers visitors a breathtaking view of the valley below.

It is located by a picnic area, complete with tables, so there’s no need to stop admiring the spectacular autumn beauty while grabbing a bite to eat.

The park is free to visit, and will give you a true sense of what Civil War times were like while displaying our great state’s natural beauty.

Be prepared to be dazzled by all that Droop Mountain has to offer.
