Beautiful day for a hike in Davis, WV. Parked at Blackwater Lodge and found many trails. Stop in the lodge first and ask for a trails map. Hiked app. 6 miles and I had the three trails I was on all to myself. Falls were running low due to the lack of rain lately. I am staying at Black Bear Lodge just South of Davis, very nice.

More forest than anything. Low falls however only to split before balance rock was completed.

Wonderful park. Well marked trails, but all intersect making it easy to stray off planned track. We saw multiple deer during the short hike. Beautiful bridges and with snow looks like a winter wonderland.
