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.

The falls here are beautiful! I followed the train tracks a bit off trail and ended down by the water. Huge rocks, beautiful views!

Beautiful area! We hiked down Rhododendron Trail and found 27' Falls and Twin Falls. Can't wait to go back this fall.

This is definitely one of my favorite trails since the 1980s. I love the waterfalls in the general area, and it's always provided such peace, respite and tranquility for me

Before you start your trek, cross the bridge from the parking lot and enjoy the history and the views of the expansive waterfalls! When you return to the parking lot walk to the far northern end to start the Rhodo Trail. There, the path is about 10-15' wide and is shared with Mountain bikes. The trail gradually climbs for a mile and you can continue on the Rhodo trail or turn right on to the Rocky trail where you have to option of several loops ranging from 3 to 6 + mile loops.
