9 mile multi-use trail at Carter Caves State Park that starts and ends at the horse stables. This hike passes through the Tygart State Forest, the Smokey Creek valley and a couple old homesteads in Kiser Hollow.

Well I went out to run this trail a few days ago.it ended up being 60/40 trail run/ hike. The trail was in very sloppy shape. It was more obstacle course than trail run... In fact, this would make a very good training course for Tough Mudder, as I fell in the mud a couple times and even lost my shoe to a mud pit once. And when the trail wasn't insanely steep, rocky and/or muddy, there was a lot of thorny overgrowth. Again, not much to look at along the way. I think I'm done with this trail for a while.

I hiked this once last summer. Not a lot to look at considering the distance. Good variety of terrain, however, and I plan to revisit soon to run this trail.
