Beautiful hike, would consider this a very easy trail for experienced backpackers. Water was a bit cold but went for a swim anyways, creek crossings were great, did not have to take off boots or get feet wet. Trail was dry and in good shape. Would consider this trail again if was ever in the area again.

This is an outstanding backpack trail, beware high volume. Be sure to combat hi pH, as the water you'll be drinking is quite acidic... Some route finding/navigation skills are needed at lower elevation, especially when at crossings... no blazes and VERY FEW cairns to rely on. Do yourself a favor and bring a 24K topo.

I also tried this in August and was stopped just 10 minutes in due to a rattlesnake.

My dad took me fishing here a lot as a child, and even as an adult it's still one of my favorite places to visit. I love the nature and the view. This place is beautiful all year round.

We were lucky enough to get some trail magic (in the form of a water refill). Not a lot of water up there, but the beauty of the ridge makes up for it!

Great Hike and especially beautiful view at Table Rock. Easy so it makes it nice to bring someone who isn't all that into hiking. Be careful though, I have come across good size rattlesnakes at Table Rock and almost stepped on one in a crack.

If you are coming down Forest Road 717, look for a sign that says Allegheny Trail. Someone has helpfully carved Canyon Rim underneath it, but it's hard to see from the road. Nice hike, elevation changes were not too difficult. We did encounter two rattlesnakes sunning on the trail. One stopped us from completing the trail.

Amazing! Been camping here for 30 years. my home away from home

Completed 5 of 13 miles (fm FR112 to Tom Lick Trail). MUDDY! Super slick. Would recommend avoiding for a while.

Attempted to hike. Nothing but mud. Would avoid hiking for a while.

Hiked this 4th of July weekend. Water was cold and running high. Still passable, though. Another couple of days of rain and it may not be. Start off early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Awesome trail. The northern end near the Cranberry campground was in great shape last time I was there, July of 2015. This can be a backbone for a lot of great loops.

I took my kayak to Spruce Knob Lake a few weeks ago. This is a great place for beginners to practice their paddling/maneuvering skills. The day I went, it was a little chilly with some light rain. The water was calm, but there were still plenty of individuals fishing and kayaking. There's an easy area where you can load/unload your kayak as well as easily guide your kayak to and from the loading area.

Beautiful vistas and really great camp sites! No water makes things a bit more difficult. A really great hike!

It's an ideal outing when the weather cooperates.

Great, highly recommend hiking in to camp, then spend a day on the falls swimming. moderate hike in switchbacking up a the classic west virginia landscape.

Nice trail at Dolly Sods

Miss covers everything. Red spruce dominate forest. When the sun is coming in from the West it is almost like walking into a candle lit cathedral.
