I hiked this today. Gorgeous hike, plenty of camp sites.... cross water 4 or 5 times and very muddy but the rocks that are everywhere serve a massive purpose!!!!! If those rocks weren’t strategically placed on the trail, you’d sink in the mud!!! Kudos to whomever did that! Also, the terrain changes a lot! You’re in thick woods then crossing water then in an open field with views of the mountains then you’re in the woods with leaves surrounding you....it’s definitely a trail I recommend! Next time, I’m camping

Fun trail to go on, Ì went 11/5/17, about 4 hours round trip. Basically walking up a hill half way then down the hill half way. Easy marked trail with blue diamonds (and yellow rectangles) on the trees. You’ll come to the top on the hill where it forks, left will take you on the Allegheny Trail, and right take you to the High Falls (there are signs). Once you come to the railroad tracks make a right and follow the tracks down stream around a few bends until you come to a train stop and you’re there. Ì suggest reading Scott C’s post down below on how to find it because ì had trouble finding the trail head myself.

Great change of scenery through out the hike. Provides various landscape contrast.

This is an easy leg stretcher. The trail winds through a beautiful forest with mild ups and downs. It ends on a point of land jutting out from the "mainland" to provide marvelous views to the south and southeast. We were there on a spectacular fall late afternoon. The lighting on the clouds and mountains (views all the way to the Virginia mountains in the distance) was breathtaking. Parking is limited.

check road conditions when you're planning to do this trail! tried to get to this trail yesterday and it was completely inaccessible - forest rd 244 is closed for the year and with all the recent rain, canaan loop rd past lindy point was almost impassable (it's normally a rougher rd but it's currently full of giant pot holes and swamped in some areas). if you have a truck/jeep/4 wheeler you would probably be fine coming in from the lindy point side, but i couldn't make it in an AWD subaru.

We hiked this close to sunset on a fine fall day. The sign at the entrance speaks to the views from the top (all the way to Snowshoe on Cheat Mountain), but there appears to be only one rather narrow cleared areas from which you can get a view. As mentioned below, parts of the trail are overgrown and need cutting back. Nonetheless the mass-covered forest floor is wonderful. Just don't expect the kind of views that one might associate with mountain tops.

very very steep for the first few miles but one hell of a workout

It was a good trail except the end could be difficult if it's wet out because you follow the edge of the mountain to junction with middle fork trail
