One of the best close-to-Morgantown hikes! Rushing mountains streams in the summer. Rocky in places, but a beautiful trail.
Took the Advanced Ski Trail from the forest entrance parking lot to the historic Henry Clay Furnace and continued onto the Mt. Chateau Trail, which lead to Cheat Lake. Roughly 4-5 miles to the lake. It was a slight descend the entire way, a little steeper toward the end near the lake. Took us an hour and forty minutes to hike down and an hour forty back. Fairly easy. Nice views of the forest and lake. Recommended.
