    Overall this was a pretty fun trail and easy to make a day trip out of. The trail was pretty muddy in places and very rocky in others. Some parts of the trail aren't very well blazed but the path was pretty obvious so it wasn't hard to find the way. Some parts of the trail, especially near the beginning are very over grown, so it'd be wise to keep an eye out for snakes as I was about 5 inches from stepping on one. The falls themselves are gorgeous and the water is perfect to soak your feet in.

    This trail was amazing although very rocky in places. There are some great camp sites and it is very well traveled.

    High Meadows trail was nice but I wasn't nearly as impressed with the meadows as the ones coming up the Judy Springs Trail. Lumberjack was very muddy and it took us way more time than it should have. Both trails were also lined with stinging nettles.

    Hiked from the parking lot at the top of Spruce Knob to Seneca Creek, and it was well worth the hike up the next day. Camp sites can be found all along the creek and I didn't see one bad one. About .2 miles before Judy Springs is the "prettiest camp site in WV" unfortunately we couldn't make camp there as we had to hunker down for a storm but the site featured a waterfall as well as a mill stone table. This is easily one of my favorite trails in WV.

    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.

    The overlook wasn't much of a view at all. However if you're willing to take a short jaunt down the hill from the rock, you'll find some awesome rocks and even a small cave

    Trail was very well blazed and looked as though the grass had been cut recently. Started out pretty flat but quickly turns into a steep incline. The stone trough was neat but nothing incredible.

    Perfect warm up trail. Bit muddy when I hiked but the group I was with started at ferncliff, and it was a great trail to stretch the legs on and enjoy the forest scenery.

    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.

    I would rank the view from Chimney Top the best in the state, hands down. The trail is difficult and you work for the reward, but man, is it one hell of a reward. The trail itself was steep in places, rocky in others, and steep and rocky in some places alltogether, but I would hike this 10 more times given the chance and I don't think I would tire of the view.

    Neat and easy trail if you're looking to get outside without the exercise getting to strenuous. Ton of people on the day I went which was expected as the park gates were closed and this was the closest trail to the parking area.

    Beautiful views along the trail and the only strenuous part seemed to be the stairs. Great rocks on the way as well even though someone wrote "Bong Rip Cove" on one of them

    Rocky in some places and muddy in others. Not much elevation gain, but still, wonderful view at the end.

    Came to Babcock on a day trip with a friend and this was easily my favorite trail. Easy but fun climb up the mountain, and if you're someone who's into neat rocks and unique geologic features, Babcock State Park is and excellent choice.

    Beautiful vista on the Skyline Trail, but quite a long way up. Didn't manage to finish the entire trail, but had lunch at the vista where Skyline meets the Old Pond Trail and ended up walking the road back to where we had parked the car.

    Excellent view of the bridge at the end. Went on a rainy day and still had very little trouble on this trail. Excellent for a day hike.

    Been here twice. First time with some friends and the second with my mom. Easy trail but still a pretty good hike. Watch out for snakes in the summer!

    We went on a rainy day, but even then the trail wasn't difficult to navigate. Perfect trail for a warm up with great views.

    We went on a rainy day, so the trail was a little slick, but the views were well worth it. especially since the bridge underlook at the visitors center was closed.

    Definitely worth the hike. Should be rated as moderate because even though the trail is well maintained, it's a rigorous walk to the observation deck.

    Really had a good time on this trail when we went. The furnace was really cool and we even found some geocaches!

    The first bit of the trail is probably the worst because it was very steep, muddy, and there was a tree down about halfway up the hill. After that, most of the trail has a much gentler incline. There were a few fallen trees that we had to climb over as well. About an hour into hiking the trail, you can take a small detour down another steep hill to Tenskwatawa falls. There's a small cave behind the falls, so it served as a nice spot to take a break and watch the water.

    Great trail to warm up on. Trail is actually 0.5 miles and takes about 30 minutes to complete. Lots of cool rocks to look at and climb around. There were a few tricky places where we had to cross a few small streams, but overall pretty cool. We even got to watch a deer give birth on this trail!
