A relatively short hike to an incredible view. A spacious red chair and several rocks perfect for sitting await at the top for everyone to take in the view. Almost the entire towns of Beverly and Elkins are visible from this point; however, it gets very foggy under rainy conditions. The trail is lined with gravel. Parking is available at the base of the trail. At the top, there are a few satellites and towers; however, as soon as you get past those, the breathtaking view becomes visible.

Great trail for locals if you know what you are looking at.is also shared by several antennas for the airport and cell towers, but it doesn't effect the view at all. Also explore rich mountain, a civil war battlefield, which you need to walk thru to get to the top of Rich Mt. anyhow. Nice picnic spot, watch for storms, nowhere to go if a sudden storm comes, and definitely bring a camera.
