Early fall in Canaan Valley is a glorious time of year…maples dropping bright red leaves, aspens tinged in yellow and cool, clear sunny days. Here at Black Bear Resort, you can enjoy your first of two falls, as our elevation of over 3,200 feet means our autumn begins much earlier than the lowlands’…or the calendar’s!
