Offering 6,000 acres of exciting outdoor getaways any time of year. Cacapon Resort State Park provides golfing, lake activities and hiking opportunities in West Virginia's eastern panhandle, while providing top visitor service in a first-class lodge. Cacapon (pronounced ka-KAY-pon) Resort State Park is so named because it sits within the shadows of a wide expanse of Cacapon Mountain, the highest peak in the eastern portion of the state at 2,300 feet. The mountain divides the landscape, with the park on the eastern slope and the Cacapon River winding along the base of the western slope. Cacapon is a derivative of a Shawnee Indian word meaning "medicine waters," a reference to the area's mineral waters that have been renowned through history for their healing powers. These waters come to the surface about 10 miles from Cacapon at nearby Berkeley Springs State Park.

Did the full loop and took about 2.5 hours. Lots of tall grass at top covering trail, but it was well marked.

Not sure I would say it's easy. There are some decent uphill ascents. Not strenuous but more than a stroll. Nice forest scenery. Bugs weren't bad either. Definitely worth doing again in a different season.

We wound up making a modified loop and coming back on one of the park roads as we hadn't packed enough water to do the full 7.5 miles.

The state park is great.

I completed the Ziler Loop Trail today. It was a nice hike - about a 4 mile loop. Strenuous hike up the Ziler Trail. No real views up at the top, but it was a nice quiet walk. I only saw one other couple on the trail. Before leaving the park, I made my way up to the Cacapon Mountain Overlook. Beautiful views! I highly suggest making the drive up before you leave.
