Lotsa rocks and the mud is no joke. There’s no way around it today. The view at the end is well worth the short trek.

Short hike to a beautiful view. Trail is muddy. Only saw one group of hikers on a Sunday.

Short and easy trail to amazing views although be prepared to navigate muddy patches. very doable if you only have a small period of time. make sure you get back before sunset or you will not see the trail coming back and you will get lost. there are no markers and the trail is only visible during the day.

HikingGreat!

Great hike. Little elevation gain - a little rocky and the last 1/3 was muddy. That is the reason for the four stars instead of the five. But the payoff is spectacular. Gorgeous colors and beautiful vista. The drive up was on a narrow road but colors were beautiful.

Fun trail through dense forest opening to a rock outcropping with a beautiful view. trail was rocky and I wanted to talk to the stones like Christoff from Frozen in the hopes they'd turn into trolls. 4 stars due to the mud.

HikingGreat!Muddy

Like most in this area, the trail is very muddy, so wear good hiking boots to stomp through it! The last 3/10ths is all mud but easily passable, though it can be a bit of a slow slog. Overall the trail is pretty mellow and great for little kids, lovely mushrooms of all colors dot the trail. The top is beautiful and and you'll likely share it with a few others, but there's plenty of space. Ignore any GPS that takes you any way other than from Canaan Loop Rd. (accessible from Rt. 32 in Canaan Valley, shortly south of Davis). It's about a 30-40 min drive down the gravel road and there aren't a ton of potholes. Don't attempt driving from the Blackwater Falls State Park side of the loop, or up 244, unless you have a Jeep/4x4 and you're intentionally off-roading.

HikingMuddyRocky

Mud? Check. Rocks? Check. Beautiful view that makes the drive up and trekking through the mud worth it? CHECK! We turned onto Canaan Loop Road from Rt. 32, as recommended from previous hikers. My little Honda Civic made it but be careful, there are many potholes and it’s very rocky towards the beginning of the road. This gravel road is extremely narrow up towards the top and I spent a good amount of time “white knuckling” my way down the road. Otherwise, AMAZING view up top and well worth the road up, rocky trail and muddy patches we encountered.

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

When you think of hiking, this trail would meet the definition. Beautiful forested trail, moss covered rock and plant variety. The trail is rocky for the first two thirds and then turns into a a lot of wet, muddy areas. Hikers have found walk arounds for the worst parts and even though it was a dry August period, we still got some mud on our shoes. Don’t trust those dry skims on the top. You will go to your ankles. But, the payoff at the end of the trail is something to behold. Cliffs and crevices to explore and even a memorial if you look close enough. We spent an hour just admiring the natural beauty God provided. Getting there: We we’re staying at the Blackwater Fall Lodge and I have a Toyota 4-runner and decided to take the Canaan Loop Road that is NOT recommended. It was an exhilarating drive but very very very tough and rough. I may have left out a very. We went back on the maintained part of the loop road and it was like a highway in comparison. Well worth the 10 mile drive from Route 32. Enjoy!

Beautiful trail. Although flat it has some surface variations like rocks and towards the end, muddy patches. You can bypass many of them but if wearing sneakers your feet will likely get wet. Great view at the end overlooking a wooded valley and surrounding mountains. One note: we didn’t realize how far in it was on the loop road from the turnoff on Rt 32. It clocked at just under 10 miles and took half an hour to reach the trail head.

Hiked this trail 2 weeks ago. It is beautiful! Secluded which is great. I followed the driving directions 2 posts down that suggests taking Canaan Loop Road south of Davis and it was very easy to get to. will be back soon

We hiked Table Rock this past Saturday with my boyfriend’s parents. Like others before me, I definitely recommend turning off on Canaan Loop Rd off Hwy 32 just south of Davis. The road was your typical Monongahela NF road (little bumpy with some narrow spots). The view was amazing! The trail is a little rocky and has some muddy spots, but there is very little elevation gain.

Good trail, very secluded, probably because it is difficult to get to. When driving to the trail head, google maps will likely have you take dry fork road and then 244 up the mountain. 244 is an unpaved forest road which is often closed and can be quite treacherous. Google maps may also have you take Canaan loop road through black water falls state park which will require a lifted 4x4 vehicle because there is a stream that you will need to ford if you go this way. Instead, take Canaan loop toad off of Rt. 32 at Canaan Heights south of Davis. This will lead you directly to the trail head without requiring a lifted 4x4.

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.

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

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!

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.

HikingFloodedMuddyWashed out

The first gps map took us an HOUR out the wrong way, never will use google maps again! Then we used a different app and got there shortly. Be careful with the maps! The trail to get to table rock was flooded with rushing water and was washed out- so unfortunately we couldn’t cross. We did decide to walk to lindy point overlook instead and it was pretty awesome! We plan to visit again with a better vehicle as it looks like a fun place to do a little off roading. I did like this place more then Coopers rock.
