Just got back from a trip there. Beautiful scenery. A lot of the trail is very rocky. Not pebbles but large stones you have to negotiate. We happened to go in the rain and the trail was a creek with a few larger pools that presented challenges to keeping your feet dry. The creek was up do to the rain and was quite impressive. Multiple camps sights down by the creeks edge. We made it from the parking lot at the top of fire road 80 to the campsites in about 2 hours or so carrying packs.

Just did an hour out-and-back at the southern terminus along 33. Parking was not fun- just a narrow strip along the road with ambiguous no-trespassing signs. Coming in from the north/west side (out of Germany Valley) requires a hairpin u-turn on a blind corner. However, once on the trail assuming you haven’t been run over it’s awesome. Big cliffs of Tuscarora quartzite and views of Germany Valley the whole way to Spruce Knob. Bring a good camera! Also read up on the local geology-makes the landscape even more amazing.

Beautiful and challenging. Definitely backcountry! You’ll definitely be fording some creeks, so I don’t really recommend dogs on this trail if they’re not comfortable swimming against a strong current. It can get dangerous real quick. So many amazing species of flora, lots of awesome camping spots set up between the trails. This loop gets quite messy when it rains.

Great level trail. Great camping. Lots of water falls

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

Beautiful place for backcountry camping

So lovely

Hiked in on allegheny trail to Seneca falls for some fly fishing...easy hike in until you get to the falls...the trail kind of disappears at that point and becomes difficult to follow...the fishing on Seneca creek is always great.

I Love this hike. Myself and a couple of friends hiked it last week which was mid to late August and the weather was perfect. Not to hot not to cold, just perfect for a good day hike. The train was there when we got there and the view of the falls was an absolute treasure

We stayed in Davis, WV for a 4 day hiking vacation - We hiked this trail starting from the Western side - the parking is on 80, just off of Rt 32. It is about a mile from the parking to the real trail head - where Black Bird Knob, Big Stonecoal and Breathed Mountain Trail intersect. The hike is good, spanning both ridgelines as well as some covered areas. The ground tends to be very boggy in places - about halfway across we realized that there are strategically placed stones so you can get through. We hiked across and when we arrived at the Eastern side, detoured slightly to the trailer campground to the right - about 50 yards up the road. There was a picnic table we could sit at to eat, then we hiked back. While AllTrails says this is an 8.7 mile hike - for us it was 12 miles from car to car. We were fortunate to enjoy a patch of late season blueberries as we finished. My dog enjoyed it too.
