    On a side note, I would like to try to get a hang together this summer here in WV for some that may not have been here before and those who have. Plenty of nice places like the Canaan Valley, Dolly Sods, Spruce Knob areas. I'll post'er up if I can get it together.
    I grew up in Fairmont! Happy Camper and some others organized a Dolly Sods hang last year. I'd definately do that again.

Do you have a map indicating their locations? I know there are trails in the north but I thought most of that area was for horse backriding.

    Yeah thats the one, If you call the visitors center they will give you the GPS coordinates for the designated spots. They are not much, just a cleared out spot for tents. Plenty of places to stealth.

    Great...thanks for the info. I'll give them a call. This park is very close and the 13 miles is a great length for an overnight.

    I'm calling for directions tomorrow. I would expect I'll try camping on the trail sometime in April...not to long. I just got into hammock camping and don't have an UQ so I want to make sure the temps rise a bit. I will more than likely hit the trail on a Sat some time soon. If you want to join me let me know.
