Not a bad hike...very easy and pretty much all flat...trail is very wide. I think a lot of folks use it for mountain biking as well...pretty cool history along the way as we got further into the hike, towards Hammond, we started seeing a lot of old bricks and worn down structures from the old brick factory...beautiful views of the Tygart river from the beach area...walked the railroad tracks back to valley falls and got some good pics...all in all, not a bad hike for a couple of hours on a beautiful Saturday.
