Good Trail. Could have been better, only being about 3 miles and you can’t go in and go out it just loops. Good trail if you want terrain. Lot of roots in the path though.

Great short trail to hike. Beautiful views of the New River Valley

A nice hike yesterday in beautiful weather.

A nice group of red and white trilliums on the west side of 381 section.

Make sure you download the trail maps from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy or pick one up at the start. This trail route is actually a combination of a number of trails, and the marking can be quite confusing.

Not very well marked at all. Got lost a couple times and eventually turned around.

Beautiful trail with many look-over points.

Amazing hike to hojo’s. Steady climb the entire 2.4 miles. Great views.

Great hike all down and state back up !

Probably one of my favorite trails ever! Highly recommend taking the climbing detours - the ladders can be intimidating, but it’s a fantastic adventure to literally climb up and down the cliff face. A great experience. You bet I’ll be hiking this one again!

hadn't done yet. looking forward to the climb in late May. wish me luck I don't get eaten by lion, tiger and bears.... oh my.

Muddy but fun. I have nothing bad to say about this trail but it does get a little challenging during parts.

Excellent trail with beautiful scenery. Came from high bridge and hit cucumber falls at the end and it was well worth it. had the gorge trail to ourselves, but the falls themselves were a little crowded since it's a popular spot right next to the road.

Great trail. Followed blue to black. Few down trees great views. Fun hike.

One of the most remarkable hikes I've ever been on. Don't be discouraged by the stairs.. the ruins at the bottom are amazing and so interesting to see. The buildings were abandoned in the 60s and are now inaccessible to go inside. The top of the trail is incredibly steep at times but it's so worth it. I can't wait to do this again, I love WV!

Great rolling trail following the river. the last bit has a decent elevation change. Make sure to stop at Cucumber Falls.

We love the trails in this area! This is a fantastic trail to do with some awesome views!

Found hard in areas. Started at cog railroad. It took me seven hours.

I went hiking here on Saturday March 31, 2018. Since a lot of snow has recently melted in the area the trail was very muddy (estimated 20-25% of the trail). So bring shoes that you don’t mind getting completely wet if it has rained recently. There were a lot of flowing creeks to cross, plus many of the flatter areas on the trail were soaked in several inches of standing water. This wouldn’t be a big deal except that going around the trail was very difficult due to many thorn bushes in the area.

I agree with others that it would be nice if there were a few more trail markers. We made it back to the parking lot but not by our intended route. At one point there was a very large fallen tree crossing the trail. But due to lack of visible markers we didn’t know that it was had fallen on the trail (because we didn’t know where the trail was) until foraging around it. Also, if you follow the black trail, beware of a another fallen tree right here:

It carries a trail marker, but since the tree has fallen it is difficult to figure out which way to go.

In general, the trail could definitely use some clean up.

Otherwise it was beautiful, quiet and a lovely day in the woods.

Beautiful views of the gorge and river below. Great for hikers and climbers. The trail is easy to follow. Some spots get muddy during rain season and get over grown with shrubs during those seasons, but the path is still clear. 7 and 12 yr old loved it! Great to watch birds as well. About 1/2 a mile must be walked to get back to either parking lots. Be careful walking local road.

Can’t beat it!

Did the blue trail. Very well marked and easy to follow. Easy hike as well. Will be doing the black trail next trip for a little more distance and hopefully more elevation gain. Didn’t take as long as predicted.

Great trail but it was to slippery to continue down the rocky steps with my dog safely. But the snow made for some beautiful picture but it trail was very easy to find and parking with a restroom was about 50 yards from the trail head

as a new hiker it was hard to keep to the trail. I keep trying to do the loop but always end up turning back.

Easy short hike to breathtaking views. We went the morning after a rainfall and it was muddy and slippery so be cautious!

I will definitely do this again but I can tell why almost every review says you'll get lost. It is maybe one of the worst blazed trail I have ever been and is the worst around the baseball fields. But I loved the hike and the challenging hills. When the elevation says it's going to go up just be ready to climb.

Great trail, I have hiked it many times. Beautiful views of the Gorge, the bridge, and of rhododendrons. Great for rock-climbing as well. The trail is on the 2nd largest natural rock wall formation in the world.

Great exercise and would only do this once only because you literally do a mountain of stairs only to end up in ruins and then u get to turn it around and walk all the back up a million flights of stairs. It was fun and a unique experience. But if you have dogs make sure they are capable of it bexause it's pretty intense. Hard is the perfect rating for this.

Not for the faint of heart (seriously, you need to be in decent cardio shape and at least slightly athletic)! Very cool historical trail - the mining ruins are pretty awesome especially on an overcast day. Wear good shoes as the trail is steep and easy to roll ankles on. And bring plenty of water. You’ll burn some serious calories if you go to the river and back. Overall pretty fun and you’ll feel majorly accomplished at the end.
