I wasn’t paying attention toward the beginning and walked off the trail. It was pretty easy to get back on it. I did the entire trail (Blackbird Knob 4.7mi) out & back from Forest Road 75 to Route 37. It was very muddy but as long as you have the right boots it’s worth it.

Great for running. Overgrown in a few parks with some technical rocky sections. Started at redman and ended at the north fork mountain parking lot. Finished in 2:10.

I really enjoyed this trail and opted to go clockwise to do the major ascent first. It didn’t look like anyone except a Forest Ranger had been on this trail for a long while, but frankly that was fine as I prefer the solitude and gladly trade that for a little overgrowth. Staying on trail was relatively easy despite the absence of blazes and very little signage.

We hiked in 4-5 miles with limited water. We quickly learned that the lighter you can go on this trip the better. We had taken 3L of water each with the expectation to resupply off the main trail at the power lines. We hiked down to the water source, which was very hard to get to, and one of my buddies ended up slipping and torquing his knee (History of multiple ACL injuries) we were able to get him back up the hill and resupply the water. We were all exhausted from the climb back up the overgrown hill. We hiked back to a camp spot, and set up for the night. Around 12pm it began to rain. Our shelters were hammocks and rain fly’s but the rain managed to get in due to wind. We spent the night waking every few hours to water in the hammocks. We were able to stay warm with our sleeping bags, but the night wasn’t great. We decided to hike out due to injuries. Regardless, the views coming in are beautiful. Make sure you bring water. Pack light. Enjoy the flat parts of the trail. Have better cardio than us.

We got to this trail through black water falls state park.. the trail was very rocky and you DEFINITELY need a lifted vehicle!! I have a Jeep Wrangler that was perfect for this trip. After the trail is done you come out to a gravel road- we parked right by the sign and walked to the trail which was a pretty decent hike, was super muddy in some spots and you definitely will need waterproof hiking boots. The view was incredible and there wasn’t any other people around which is rare. I loved this trail. I’m not sure if this is a trail for beginners especially if you aren’t used to driving off-road.

Hiked it a few years ago. Great hike. Water can be an issue but with planning very doable. We did two days but I think 3 may be a better plan with all the views. You can find me on Instagram at Mountaineer97 if you want to ask me any questions.

Disclaimer ** the route for this trail when completed recorded 9.2 not 8.5miles . Wear your sturdiest and comfy waterproof boots because the mud will stick and suck you down in some parts ! Very muddy, very rocky, very beautiful and quite the workout. I haven’t hiked in a month and my legs are dead today. Layer by layer there were so many shifts and forest transformations i wasn’t expecting WV to be this stellar !! So many secluded camping spots and along the river , next time I’m bringing my hammock to stay out for the night . Really friendly hikers and campers I passed by on my way up and down . Poles are recommended as well. No pesky mosquitos or ticks so that was an A+ in my book. The trail ended abruptly in the middle of the forest which was a bummer but so many linking trails nearby and places to enjoy a light lunch/dinner. When leaving the parking lot @9:15pm it seemed most of the cars that were in diverse parking sections were camping overnight ! WV you cease to amaze me , happy trails everyone . Much peace and love

Planned on hiking this trail today but like others had mentioned recently, the road was closed shortly after turning on Route 244.

Amazing, underrated trail. Saw no one on day one, except for a fawn, baby bear, bald eagle and many chipmunks. Day two was a few backpackers and dozens of day hikers at the Chimney Top. Start at Rt. 33 and go north if you’d like to avoid climbing the mountain up to Chimney Rocks. It was mid-June, weather was perfect, spring was running and the mountain laurel thickets were in bloom.

Easy to moderate trail. We drove in from Rt 32 (10 miles to the trail head) and it was a pretty drive although the road gets pretty narrow and washed out in spots. The trail is mostly easy and well-maintained but does have some rocky and muddy places the closer you get to the overlook. If you’re taking kids, hang onto them! Huge drop-offs and very wide and deep crevices! Beautiful view from the rocks!

We only hiked to the knob from the trailhead, but amazing hike! Tough terrain at times, get ready for mud and crossing through creeks! We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Spring is not dry right now. When you reach the power line go downhill and there will be a slightly clear path that starts to cross left or right (depending which side you go down). There is a small ravine and inside is the spring. The climb back up is pretty steep. I would recommend dumping your pack before the descent. :) Ticks are really heavy right now. Really heavy! Traffic was very light. No problem finding a camp site. Overall great hike. Views are amazing and great wildlife. I would rate the level as moderate.

HikingClosed

My friend and I tried to hike this the other day but the road up to the trail head was closed (and seemed to be closed for awhile). So we decided to hike up the gravel road (about 5.4 miles) but Table Rock was not at the top. Not sure why this trail was so confusing to get to, but we weren’t able to hike it.

BackpackingMuddyRocky

We are new backpackers and wanted a one day loop. There were bugs but no biting ones, just annoying gnats occasionally. We hiked between days of thunderstorms so there many areas with small creeks. Make sure you bring extra socks. The directions from the app brought is to a fire road just before the actual trail head. There is enough parking for about 4-5 cars. When we began the trail, we started from the right, past the sign. We traveled just a mile past the hairpin turn and found an open area to set up camp. There are lots of camping sites around the little waterfall/creek. We were pretty tired the next day and had some pretty rough blisters so we kept following the blue diamonds instead of continuing on the Lumberjack loop, saving about 1.5 miles. Cut straight up the mountain, back to the lumberjack trail. It wasn't a super difficult trail, just some spots where you need to jump rocks if it rains. We had walking sticks and it made the rock hopping more manageable. It was pretty fun too. Make sure you take care of your feet.

Loved this trail all except the many many muddy pits you have to navigate, but it is beautiful and after the upper loop of this trail the scenery continuously changes. It’s all beautiful however. We backpacked in and stayed near one of the waterfalls. Trail was easy to moderate for me and I’ve only day hikes prior to this. You get Mountain View’s, missy forests, streams, waterfalls, a meadow and tree tunnel all in this hike. Definitely recommend.

Great hike! I definitely wouldn’t rate it as hard, moderate at best.
