It wasn't until last month that the word monolith became extremely popular. The unique silver statutes been seen in Utah, California, Romania--now West Virginia can be added to that list.
"I think it's awesome. I think the fact that just some random art showed up in the woods and nobody knows where it came from is pretty cool," said Jon Evans.
"I think some people are getting kind of heated about it, but I'm excited about it."
"I was kind of surprised when I first saw it," said Andrew Forron.
Those who visit the Wolf Creek Trail system in Fayetteville say the silver apparatus appeared sometime last week, though they aren't sure why it's there or who placed it there.
"Not much goes on, on this piece of trail, it's kind of one of the harder trails here so not many people are out here. Rolling around the corner and seeing this thing was sort of a surprise."
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE TRAIL SYSTEM
Before you consider going and visiting the monolith or the Wolf Creek trail system itself, consider the following:
- If you are inexperienced with hiking or even walking on a trail system, consider bringing someone who is experienced with you.
- Let someone know where you are going by showing them a detailed map of your area and when you are going to the trail system.
- Put your phone on Airplane Mode, as this can allow for a longer lasting battery life on your phone, however, this disconnects you from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
