Absolutely breathtaking from the bottom or the top Wonderful place to stay. no cell phone service is actually amazing. Nice break from the hustle of life! Have to see these rocks in person. Pictures don’t do them justice. Great weekend stay.

Short easy walk with beautiful view. Great off roading trail (is a West Virginia road) just past where you park for Lindy point. But only lifted 4x4 or dirt or mountian bike can make it the whole way thru.

Trail is a steady climb. Best views are past the warning sign on top of the rocks. It is dangerous. Be careful. Kids MUST be held on to. Views are awesome. If you are unsteady or unsure, use the viewing deck.

A beautiful, muddy hike. Bring a copy of the map. At one section there where 3 different trail markers going different ways. Keep going straight and you'll be fine.

Easy, steady hike up with lots of switchbacks. View at the top is gorgeous. The hike was a little boring and there were a lot of people even in the off season. Overall a decent hike, though. There's a neat little historical cabin on the other side of the parking lot, too.

this trail is up hill all the way, not a lot of stumbling but so worth the view

Fun, short trail with excellent views at the end. there was light snow on the trail which made the 2 steep sections a bit dangerous. Completed it with my 4 year old daughter who had a blast. I helped her down the 2 step sections, but she was able to go up them without assistance.

Really really easy trail but beautiful sight to see. lots of steps!

Awesome hike to top

Chimney Tops, IMHO is the best view in West Virginia. Jaw-dropping 360. Please note that the immediate area around the rock formation that is Chimney Tops is often closed off due to raptor activity. The spur of the North Fork Trail is extremely steep and unmarked, so access to mapping to locate it is suggested. Please do not disrupt the area if it is roped off- there are dozens of other beautiful views north and south of this point! We were lucky enough to be there later in the season and the rope was removed. From the Northern terminus trail head of the North Fork Mt Trail, one can go south bound for a heart pounding 1,970' climb in 2.7 miles. However, Starting at the next trailhead (Landis) south off on Smoke Hole road takes off several hundred feet vertical climb and is an easier but far less dramatic approach. Our particular trip this time evolved a shuttle vehicle- starting at the third traihead down Smoke Hole Rd. (Redman Trail) then northbound on North Fork and finish at Northern terminus for a beautiful 10+/- day hike.

More of a park and walk. The waterfall was pretty cool and had a HEAVY flow. The trail was “close,” but You could still see the Falls...and no one was around if you know what I mean.

Pretty easy and steady hike to the top. Nice wide trails and very well maintained. Went on a Monday morning and only saw one other person. The short scramble past the platform was fun. The view is the same, but the added fun was well worth it. If your clumsy, stay off, otherwise I’d recommend going the extra 100ft.

Easy, beautiful view

Easy "hike" with a great view. Go at sunset for an even better view.

Today the 2nd day of December ended up a great day on the trail. It was 60 degrees and the clear. The trail is great. If you want a good moderately difficult trail this is it. Also can be mtn biked.

this by far is my favorite hike with a reward at the top...gorgeous 360 degree views.

A fun hike. I went in late November with a dusting of snow on the ground - absolutely beautiful. The falls are gorgeous but the hike in and out is even better.

Make sure you turn right at the fork with the medium size pile of rocks at the top to see the view. I went passed it and kept following the blue trail for awhile but not much there. Steep hike but nice enough view.

Great easy and scenic trail. If you’re into trail running it’s a steady incline with even ground until you get the rocks on top. Be extra careful on the rocky area because it was snow covered and slippery.

Definitely a must see when in West Virginia. Plenty of stairs that do get wet at times. The climb is worth it though.

The falls were flowing great this past Saturday. This is definitely a walk, even a stroll. Took us 5 minutes each way. It was a beautiful and quick stop for some pretty cool falls. Would do again.

These falls were awesome. wooded steps down to platforms made it easy. Wish we couldve walk along the river more.

Awesome hike. Loved the feeling of using my trekking poles with the rocks on the final section of the top. Really cool view and very good trail, from some of the reviews I was off-putted, however, my girlfriend suggested we still go and I’m glad we did. We went on a Monday and only saw a few people and one person at the top who kindly left for us. We were at the top for about 30 minutes. No one came up. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Views!

Challenging great hike!
