Did this hike to Pipestem State Park. By the time you are about 8 miles in you are ready to be at Pipestem. Though I have never done it down and back, I did hike this hike about 4 times this year. Definitely easier to walk from Pipestem to Blueston. It's all downhill. Will surely try to do a down and back.

Trail was full of scenery and wild life! Very muddy in spots and full of spiderwebs, but both are expected for the summer season

Cabin camping. The cabin was 2-bedroom with all the comforts of home. We were usually out hiking someplace during the day, but it was nice to come back to a comfortable bed each night. Yes, I know. It's not really camping, but we did our time in tents, and now that we're older, we deserve this. The mountains are gorgeous, and the trails were great. And the park is comparable to the Virginia state parks have been visiting over the last 35 years.

This area is beautiful along the water! Very secluded location, and not many people out exploring this area when I was there.
