Perfect for first time hikers. Nice scenery running alongside the creek.

I take my dog out on this in the summer because there is a nice stream for her to cool off in. After you pass the camping area you do not have to have a lash on your dog.

Decent hiking trail. Easy to moderate- it does go uphill in some parts. Not too difficult for kids, but it is narrow in some points. A few trees had fallen across the trail so we notified the office- not too difficult to climb over through. Small creek bed runs next to the trail- it was pretty dry when we went.

A new surprise around almost every bend. Never got boring or old. Didn’t have enough time to do the whole thing but we will be back!

Not a bad trail, but some parts were steep. There was a neat little spot below alligator rock where we were able to sit on top of a rock and eat lunch.

Nice, easy out and back trail. Along the way you can see and old, abandon, sealed coal mine ad a slag pile dam. I think it is close to 1.5 miles out and back not the 2.5 miles in the description.

Hiked Beech Glen to Wildcat Trail to Polly Trail for a 3.9 mile loop, starting and ending at Polly Hollow. Nice hike with several steep sections, but just before you feel like passing out the trail levels off and gives you a chance to catch you breath. Seriously, if was a great hike and I will do it again!

This is one of my favorite trails but it was blocked by fallen trees

Easy walk.

Good difficult technical trail, more so than I remember. Large down tree across the trail in the flat on last third before connecting back to Davis Creek trail.

We take this trail with our two year old in a toddler pack. He really enjoys getting out and playing in the creek at the beginning of the trail. It connects to a bike trail on the way back and you can walk onto the alligator trail from there. This trail is very woodsy and quiet. It is also a popular trail with a lot of foot traffic so I feel quite safe.

This is a beautiful trail! Just recently started hiking and I found this trail to be doable yet slightly challenging. The views are awesome!

One of my favorites - Alligator rock is a guaranteed winner for kids

One of our favorite family hiking trails!

Nice views of the creek along the way. With nice forest views as well. But my favorite place was the bench over looking the creek. If I remember correctly it's about half way on the trail.

I walked this trail in mid-September and saw many flowers and mushrooms. Dawdled by and in the creek. LOL.

Nice trail, not too hard but beautiful. We picked up mossy rock trail up to the ridge road. Then walked the ridge to alligator rock trail followed back down to the parking lot. About 3 1/2 miles total. A few trees down on the last stretch.

It was a good hike. Very easy. Pretty much just all flat terrain unless you go down into the creek. Lots of fun and beautiful waterfalls, it's a great trail to take your dogs on if they love the water! I hiked down the trail & then crossed over at the very bottom where the lift is, to the gravel road only to get to the waterfall with the swimming hole. You can't access it on the trail. I also had to stop recording because my phone was dying, so I'd say it's about 5.2ish miles. You can park at the very beginning as well. Take a left at the rite aid, go through the bridge & then keep on driving till you see the sign "Ansted" with the brown barn. Also, it's great to run or bike. I think I might try that next time.

Nice trail. Not too difficult but still a challenging enough for a good workout.

Very pleasant trail.

Nice little trail. Well kept but you hear a lot of noise from traffic. A good trail to teach new hikers how to read trail markings.

Great for those starting, have health issues, older folks or you children or just a easy stroll through the woods.

CCC Snipe trail, Mossy Rock, Middle Ridge Trail, Teaberry Rock trail, Davis Creek Trail. This was a 6 mile loop hike and we started at Snipe trail with a steep climb. We then followed Mossy Rock to Middle Ridge Trail. This trail was a easy hike and very enjoyable to look around with breath taking views. Be careful to watch for the markers leading Middle ridge, it's easy to follow the road and not the hiking trail. Once on Teaberry, it's a steep climb back down, but enjoyable. Make sure to follow markers because there are trail leading off in different directions close to the bottom. Once we got to the bottom we stopped and allowed our dog to walk the creek and she enjoyed this play time. Continue up the creek onto Davis Creek trail and follow it back to the parking lot and beginning of Snipe trail. If reverse this hike, it will give you similar results. Overall, this was a great hike today !!

I found this hike to be very relaxing! If you have the time you can mosey along and wander down to the creek! There are some super cool historic mining artifacts and a plethora of coal bits lying around. When you've reached the end there is a neat surprise if you don't already know what you're in for.
