Babcock State Park offers its guests 4,127 acres of serene, yet rugged beauty, a fast flowing trout stream in a boulder-strewn canyon and mountainous vistas to be viewed from several scenic overlooks. All of this variety is located adjacent to the New River Gorge National 'River and the heart of the whitewater rafting industry of West Virginia.

Nice trail, friendly people, nice view!

great views at the end, but the trail down and back is only 3.1.

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.

Awesome views at the end! Well worth hiking!

This trail should probably have two difficulty ratings. From the road access, it is a remarkably easy walk with mild elevation changes. From the trailhead by the GristMill, it is a rocky, steep (fun!) climb. We took this trail to the Wilderness Trail, then down the Three Creeks Trail back to the road. Nice day hike with the kids!

started on timber ridge and branched into the loop. lots of uphill downhill. at the bottom is a nice creek with a huge hole, i assume for swimming. running the trail back to connect to long point is wide open and pretty.

We found this trail while at Glade Creek Gris Mill and we were pleasantly surprised at what a cool fun trail it was. a little steep at times but really pretty easy.
