Four unique excursions were conducted as memorial hikes in 2013 at Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park, in cooperation with the Pocahontas County Tourism Commission's Appalachian Enrichment Series. These hikes celebrated the 150th anniversary of the November 6, 1863 Battle of Droop Mountain. The hikes were led by park superintendent Michael Smith along one Confederate and three Union army routes used by troops gathering for West Virginia's last significant Civil War battle.
