Not a hard trail, but can be very wet and muddy, which in my opinion makes it more fun. The views are gorgeous!

We did Bear Rocks -> Raven Ridge - > Rocky Ridge - > Dobbin Grade - > Beaver Dam - >back to raven ridge and re-traced Bear Rocks.

Beaver Dam was a nice change of pace and scenery. We chose not to do red River as it was a steeper cut through and Dobbin Grade was supposedly very wet! Beaver dam is short and basically a nice trot on a narrow trail through gaping meadows. We saw some wildlife and enjoyed the breeze and ripe berries!

Very picturesque place to be in the fall. This trail is short and easy with no particular destination or payoff, but it's just a pleasant place to be. There are a few nice camp spots along the trail; it would be a great place to just stop and exist for a while. Also great for families due to the easily manageable grade.

Dolly sods is beautiful ... just be prepared for some swampy areas on Dobbins at the base of the trail. I looped around from the Bear Rocks parking area and decided Dobbins was just a bit to wet for the gear I had ... but for the first visit quite satisfied.
