Located in the tiny northern sliver of West Virginia, just east of Wheeling, this area is central for both South-Western PAers and South-Eastern Ohioites. Bear Rock Lake is a small state owned wild life management area. A small oasis of decent boulders is found in the woods here in an otherwise wasteland of rockless country side.
From Wheeling: Go East on 70 for about 20 miles. Get off at exit 11 Dallas Pike and make a left. Follow conveniant little fish signs on narrow backroads for about 3 miles. Park in the blacktop lot at the bottom of the hill. Follow paved trail around the right side of the small "lake", then follow a mowed path into the woods to the right. About 3-5 minutes down this path you will see the first boulders to your right about 25 feet off the trail, enter just before this boulder to find a decent trail.
