Great Trail no matter what time of year. I went on a rainy day in July and the view was still spectacular. I came up on a lookout as it had just finished raining. The fog lifted and the New River was below looking beautiful as ever!!

I fully agree with what is said on this trail description; I did it hiking and it is also a very enjoyable experience. The scenery is beautiful, and yes, the wooden bridges and some remains of the tracks add to the scenery. One can imagine how it looked like a century ago!

My boyfriend and I did this hike in late August and had a great time. The hike was relatively easy, and the views were amazing. We took a little bit of time to explore the climbing access ladders that lead to a lower level of the cliffside. Bring plenty of water, especially in hot weather, and bug spray to ward off the mosquitoes!

Such a beautiful place. It is almost too short to count as a hike.

A lot of beauty in a short hike. This is a must see if you are in the area.

Amazing scenery. I turned around about half way up but I did get to see a lot of beautiful waterfalls and stone formations.

Beautiful. I do not give many five stars, but this could be a six star. I wish I had read the reviews firs because it was muddy in a couple places. The waterfalls were beautiful.

Nice overlook to see the bridge

Wonderful views any time of year

One of our favorites in the area. Very pretty hike, not too strenuous.

We were visiting the New River Gorge Visitor's Center, and had actually planned to hike another trail close by, when someone mentioned this trail to my wife. I don't know who that person was, but I want to thank them for turning us on to this wonderful experience. The trail was relatively easy, including about 0.5 miles on the lightly traveled road, between trail heads. The views were spectacular! Though the fall colors were not at peak, the river was dazzling, and the ridge line was awesome!

Amazing! The best that West Virginia has to offer!

Fairly easy trail with amazing views! If you are afraid of heights just stay on the main trail but if you are adventurous there are many side paths that will give you all you can handle

This is a beautiful trail in a lovely area. It has multiple falls areas and informational signs. Very short but very pretty. Definitely worth the visit.
