Good hike. Moderate trail. Some rock scrambles but makes it more of a challenge. Views up top are great on a clear to partly cloudy day.

We hiked this trail in January 2019. We really enjoyed it. The water levels were high enough that we had to wade through the river. Come prepared. The elevation climb wasn't bad at all. As we turned towards the falls, the trail was a bit hard to follow due to fallen tree limbs. There were few people on the trail. We would definitely do it again.

Trailhead is marked but not much else. Easy to hike in snow by following the existing tracks. Pretty section along stream and nice rolling wooded hills.

nice easy paced trail with many beautiful scenes of the river.

Very Strenuous to the average person like myself (29 years old not in the best shape I could be), but it was worth it! The waterfalls on the incline and decline were all incredible.

one of my favorite trails closed to home.

Good for the dog too

Did this trail with my Husband in October. The view was incredible. The summit is small and windy but breathtaking. Highly recommend

Beautiful waterfall. Trail can be muddy and slippery. Did this trail in June and no issues with bugs. All up hill on the way back, but can stop and enjoy the view as much as you want. Enjoy!

Pretty intense in the snow

beautiful easy overlook, and just a few steps from Bear Chase Brewery

What was one of the best and only public places to get outside, enjoy nature, and get some exercise in the area has become a limited experience. You can’t bring dogs and the beautiful viewpoint is closed. Why? I’ve spent my entire life respectfully enjoying this place and even bringing new people to it, always educating them on its history. I’m so sad I can no longer complete a real hike with my dog.

Very short and suburban. It is mostly unpaved and, after bad weather, a lot of areas that are very muddy. The dog appreciated it and it's pretty and close to home.

about all the bridges are out due to flood early this year may be a while for they get it all back together

I love this park and this walk. It’s the perfect length and it’s a lovely view.

Wonderful trail for a nice long walk.

This is a beautiful, easy trail. It’s one of my favorite places in the region.

Went while they had the Christmas light displays up. It was nice. Very easy walk.

Great trail! It was cool and quiet, ever saw another person while exploring with my girlfriend and our pup! The trail is certainly moderate so wear your hiking boots and bring water. Be aware of $4 parking as well. The scenic overlooks of the marsh are really nice and well maintained, however be aware that the last and longest overlook walkway is currently breaking down and could become a problem for a hiker if not cautious. Highly recommend this hike and will be back myself

The road to the actual trail goes through an area with a ton of feral cats, it is also behind a Walmart, and just past a animal shelter. So if it looks sketchy your on the right place. the actual trail isn't bad, but the litter from the garbage dump kind of puts a damper on it. It's a popular trail for the locals though. It would be great if the local shelter add it is so close had a dog walking program, or a sign that you could pay to rent a dog for a walk, would have loved that.

This was a lovely walk in the woods. The surrounding hills and creek was very pretty. We discovered this trail after the government shutdown closed all the trails on Skyline Dr. Was hoping for longer and more challenging trails but this trail will do in a pinch. If I lived locally I’d be happy to do this trail often..

This is an interesting trail with impressive views at the top. Camping is not allowed once you reach a certain elevation (closer to the top, and signs will be posted.) When you reach the trailhead, taking a left will put you through the most difficult half of the trail. The second half is much easier. It was a very beautiful place at the top of the mountain to see the watch the sunset and sunrise.

Love this trail. Terrain changes in a really flat area and beautifully maintained trail. Dog friendly (as is the Trail Lodge.

This trail is very close to our farm in southern WV. It is kid friendly, and my boys enjoy it every time we visit. It’s perfect for a quick break to reconnect with nature and get moving.

Super easy but you NEED bug spray. The mosquitoes will eat you alive in 3 seconds flat no exaggeration on that one!

A little late but we went June 2017.A great hike and really refreshing after getting to the channels on a hot day.
