Poor markers, I would rate this moderate. The first mile is really steep and then it’s pretty flat and easy. Still a great hike!

Beautiful trail

Amazing workout! Feel the burn! I’m glad it was raining cause I was pouring sweat, couldnt tell what was rain and what wasn’t! Oh watch out for the chickens when you drive in!

Easy level trail with great footing. Follows river entire length. Can see river most of the time. Many access points so can choose what part of approximately 75 miles you want to do. Occasional bathrooms, water sources, and camping facilities along the way. There is a town about mid way. Occasional access to river for swimming, etc.
Shared with bikers and horseback riders, but saw very little traffic the Sunday in September that I went, and trail pretty wide so plenty of room for all.
Very pretty and serene overall.

Awesome except for the last 1/4 mile on the road.

Growth on the upper trail in spots is now making it tricky to move at speed in spots near the top.

Did it in the rain and the clouds are the top we’re breathtaking. Want to do it again when the sun is out. Beautiful!!!!

great hike. Section B was closed due to flooding. be prepared with a good amount of water

Absolutely stunning. I almost feel like botanical artists come in and plant picturesque foliage around, it just looks so surreal. I can’t even imagine how it might look once autumn has fully taken over. There was a high volume of traffic though.

Hard climb. We took 2 adults and 3 kids ages 9,10,and 12. Steep grades and some rock scrambling. The view was absolutely worth the effort. Bring lots of fluids. We had 68 oz and ran out on the way down.

Hiked trail A. Great view, great workout. Has some challenging areas so, appropriate shoes are suggested. Will definitely go again. Does get a bit congested in the later morning hours.

Ive been hiking this trail so much it's easy now. Be aware that there are some places on the upper ridge where the growth almost covers the trail. (as of Saturday of Labor Day weekend)

Moderate tough with beautiful river side scenery and the sound of gushing river water.

Stunning views. Hiked on a v hot day, but almost all of walk is under canopy, with many short but optional access spurs to rock cliffs that overlook the Gorge. Can be hiked as an out and back, or a loop if you use a short hitch on the road. A great easy hike. Finished the day with a wonderful meal at nearby Adventures on the Gorge.

My favorite hike!!! I moved away 10 years ago but when I visit home I always try to make this hike. The views are gorgeous.

Amazing hike, and definitely quite a workout; but the views are worth it! I would definitely recommend bringing tons of water and proper hiking boots (especially in the summer)

there are a lot of sections on this trail. we did the miners section which had about 830 steps and around a mile long hike to get to these steps. going down one can see the remains of the mines and the mining town.
was very interesting and a good workout.

it has a very great view at the end. The trail is well shaded.

Because I was running out of time I only did part B and the view of the river and wall of rocks was fenomenal

fun trail with a rock scramble goimg to the 30 and 100 lb battery. view of Shepherdstown is awesome

Beautiful trail. One of my favorites in the New River.

This is a great hike, beautiful views and so close to the city.

section A is great workout with amazing scenery. get there early to beat the crowd. definitely recommend starting at the trailhead closest to the visitor center and bring plenty of water with you.

I did Billy Goat Trails A and C (B was closed). I also hiked a good bit on the tow path for the return trip. Get there early. I was there and ready to start at 7 am. Hardly anyone around. By 930-10 am, there were lots of people. this trail is good for hiking or running. Follow the blue markers. Also, I rec getting the pro version of All Trails. My parents called me while I was hiking. I got distracted and got off trail (badly). When I got off track, it was easy to find my way back using the app. NI encountered no mosquitoes, which was a bonus. Trail is very shady. I definite repeat.

We completed this as a group of twelve, including an 8-year-old, 9-year-old, and four teenagers. There are blue signposts along the way giving you information about how Seneca Rocks was formed from sedimentary rock, tree slide, iron ore, etc. The little kids had to stop and read each one, which was annoying at first because they’re pretty close together, but then they were awesome as us parents needed to stop and catch our breath. The signposts stopped when the switchbacks became really steep, unfortunately. We were three out of shape Moms, and we stopped at the top of each switchback to catch our breath. Although the trail is in a forest setting, we found it to be beautiful with great views along the way. At the end of the trek, you will arrive at an observation deck which looks out over the valley. We stopped, took a million pics, had some snacks and headed back down. You have the option of climbing up some rocks, and the older kids and the younger adults in our group did just that. With the warnings about the deaths over the years, most of us stayed on the deck. As previously mentioned, you cannot really see Seneca Rocks on this trail. That was a little disappointing, but expected, as we’d read the reviews. Bring lots of water on this hike if you’re even slightly out of shape.
