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.

I would rate the trail as mostly easy and just a couple areas of tree roots and some stationary rocks which made it a little uneven. I took my dogs along for the hike and it was very pleasant and enjoyable and the view was definitely worth it at the end. I would recommend it. And I would also go back for a quick trek. I would also say it's suitable for all age ranges.

Trail was nice, the view is amazing. There was a bit of trash from fellow hikers which was a bit disappointing.

Easy with some elevation. Meets up with Long Point trail.

Well worth the easy walk to see that view! Well maintained path, easy for the most part, but has a few hills that will get your heart rate up!
