Hiking Raven Rock at the peak of its beauty

Hiking, Recreation

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – It’s known to most Morgantown locals but also attracts those out of the area throughout the year. Not only is it attractive that you can set up a campsite less than a mile away from the trailhead, the entire hike down the Ravens Rock trail is beautiful – especially in the first few weeks of fall.

Preparing for small game, duck season at Orvis Hill Country

Recreation

FAIRFIELD, Pa. – Who’s ever turned down a round of shooting clays?

If you know someone who has, I doubt they’d do it again when given the chance to knock some out of the sky at the Orvis Hill Country shooting grounds in Fairfield. Orvis provides a beautiful 15-round shooting experience that mimics what you see on waterfowl and small game hunts – quick overhead shooting interlaced with bouncing “rabbit” clays that zip down a path in front of you. Plus, the rules are what you see in goose season, a three-shell limit.

OSAGE, W.Va. – Through the rolling hills and country churches of Pursglove and Jere, well-intentioned folks don’t have many recreational opportunities when traveling down the Mason Dixon Highway. But nestled among private lands is one of West Virginia’s most beautiful and secluded wildlife management areas.

Attendees planted trees next to the overlook parking lots before restoring the Trout Pond and the daytime parking trails in the afternoon.
