Such a fantastic hike. It was tough, but felt so satisfying to reach the bottom and look back at what we had just completed. Beautiful views and an overall wonderful way to spend the day.

HikingGreat!

There is not a single section that isn't uphill for the way out. There is 4 sections 1. Pretty steep on loose rocks 2. Slightly uphill 3. Really uphill 4. OMG uphill for the last 2 tenths of a mile View was completely worth the hike up. Bring plenty of water finished my 2l camelbak by the time I reached the top. Also note do not try to take the other trail down from the summit it is not really there anymore sorta just made my way through some dense brush till I made it to the main trail

Great hike on a Friday - only saw about 6 other people our entire hike. View was a little cloudy but cleared up a bit by early afternoon. A good climb

BackpackingGreat!RockyScramble

Great trail. The views at the top are spectacular. The first part of the trail is uphill. The description says about 1/2 mile, but I think is is longer than that. It does level out nicely at the top. It is also fairly rocky. You pay close attention to where you are putting your feet to avoid tripping. Also on the way down, the rocks can be a bit slippery. There are numerous campsites along the way. I gave it a four star due to the amount of people. It is a busy trail. I would suggest going during the week if you want a little more solitude.

Nice hike!! Views of the actual rocks are best from the parking lot, but great views of the valley down below at the observation point at the top.

Hiking

Hiked this trail on 4/3. Tricky to find the start of the trail portion, it’s on the right hand side and runs nearly parallel to the fire road at first. The hike was very quiet- only saw two other groups the whole time. We did see a black bear about 200-300 yards away when we were on the fire road. Seems like the trail dead ends into another at the top of a ridge. If you take that trail to the left for about .5 miles there are some decent views near an outcropping of rocks.

HikingSnow

The trail described here is one of a couple connections that use the Huckleberry Trail to the summit. This one, linking into the Huckleberry Trail from the south begins as an unused forest road before arriving at a tank-trap sized ditch that has a large aluminum culvert pipe sunk into it, but which has not been covered over with roadbed. The route becomes increasingly overgrown as you proceed - especially when you step off of it at a moderately large cairn on hiker’s left. Then you’re on a short, overgrown connecting path will get you wet on a rainy day or snowy in the winter - just a consideration. When this connection path eventually joins the Huckleberry Trail, which DOES have a sign, thankfully, it’s clear from that point that your route is much more heavily traveled, with blazes on trees, neon ties and enough foot traffic the beat back the brush. There’s even a high campsite, although only feet from the trail. Most of the vertical gain is en route to the huckleberry trail. After the first 300 yards, the Huckleberry Trail is nearly flat for 4 miles. Occasionally you’ll arrive at a semi-clearing, never a “bald”, but there’s so little topographic difference ahead or behind you that it’s impossible to tell if you’re really still going “up” or not. Rest assured, with enough patience you’ll get to an asphalt parking lot (with restroom) and a high quality cracked stone path leading a minute or two through the woods past several information plaques to the lookout tower on the “top”. My dog struggled with ice/snow clods on this paws which we had to stop periodically on the ascent to remove. To avoid putting him through that on the descent (or carrying him), we walked down the well-paved road from the summit, completing a 12.25 mile loop. Overall, a worthwhile hike, saw only one other hiker on trail (several cars at top) but that’s probably because it was still under a couple of inches of snow. This is not a hike for the views (aren’t any until the top), but one for just being in the forest. It’s long, but it is not difficult. The “steepest” sections (never actually steep) are all on forest roadbed. There is zero exposure to cliffs or dangerous terrain. You’ll never need to put your hand down on this hike.

Great 2 mile loop hike around the falls followed by an 8 mile out and back along the forest trail.

Hiking

This is a beautiful trail by the river with lots of running water, rock formations, and views of the river. Muddy waterfall is gorgeous. When it is humid, the trail can be slippery and muddy, so I would give it an easy - moderate. Quite crowded on a Saturday afternoon.

Follow purple. Rocky but when you’re at the top it smooths out. Plenty of places to stop for camping. I’m coming back to finish this one later on this year!

Solid climb at beginning. Lots of rocks but not big ones. Long ridge line with great views since no leaves yet. Top is pretty amazing rocked and views. Really nice hike. But since ridge line can be very windy

Super nice walk!! But no reinforcement on the restriction of pets and dogs so it was an absolute dog park walk.

The best views are from the visitor’s center. As per prior reviews, a part of the trail is flooded and closed so its an out and back hike. The part of the hike that is open has interesting educational signage that makes the short steep hike worth a wander.

Nice walk along a scenic river with beautiful waterfalls. Our two grandkids (6 and 8) had a great time scrambling on the large rocks and boulders along the river. This hike is popular and can be crowded, so get there early.

HikingGreat!Rocky

The first 1.5 miles is just a gradual uphill stroll. No big deal. Then it is a strenuous steeper uphill hike for the next 1.5 miles until you reach the very top. This hike is one of the best workouts I've ever had. I'm in moderately good shape. I usually hike 6-12 miles a week. This trail kicked my butt. There are amazing view from around the 2 mile mark until you reach the top. These are some of the best views I've seen from the top of any mountain. I love West Virginia.
