The 17,371 acre Dolly Sods Wilderness in the Monongahela National Forest is part of the National Wilderness Preservation System. It is located in Grant, Randolph and Tucker Counties, West Virginia. The Dolly Sods Wilderness contains much of the Red Creek drainage and contains bog and heath eco-types, more commonly typical to southern Canada. Elevations range from 2,500 to over 4,700 feet.

Hiked this trail from where fisher spring run and rohrbough intersect it, back to forest road 19...very easy trail with a mild grade...hiking it from the forest road to rohrbough cliffs is an awesome day hike...the views at rohrbough are amazing!...highly recommended if you're not planning on an overnight trip!

Incredible views. Muddy bogs in low area of Dobbin Grade. Also recommend continuing Raven Ridge to Rocky Ridge trail. Enjoyed wild blue berries too.

This one was definitely difficult. Keep on truckin.

Sweet trail. Can get crowded in peak season. Get low if thunder rolls in.

Watch out or be prepared for muddy creek crossings on dobbin grade trail feeding red creek. Heavy out of towners on july 3rd.

Best backpacking experience of my life.

great trail with a solid change of scenery. best campsite was 1/10 of mile before beaver dam trail off of Dobbin grade which I was up to my knees in mud in some places. this trail is a single track featuring sand, rock, dirt, stream and a few creek crossings so prepare to be wet. this trail was also very boggy ..couldnt get the campsite we wanted to finished the trail in about 7 hours with cutting out the stem to lower red creek

it was a great place. i helped a dude with a hurt foot up a ravine to where his wife was standing by to get him to a hospital.

no but seriously, plan your approach. my gps took me to a three mile stretch of a road that came straight out of a b-rated horror movie.

submitted a couple photos of the road listed.
