Great day hike with a beautiful vista at the end. Today it was especially muddy, but definitely passable. Unless you have a Jeep (or other serious 4WD vehicle), you can't get to the trailhead from Blackwater Falls State Park. You need to pick up Canaan Loop Road from Route 32 near Canaan Heights. From there it's a 10-ish mile drive along a gravel/dirt fire road (which is a beautiful trip in and of itself).
