Gorgeous trail! Lots of areas where you can drop down to private areas on the water to swim. Lots of shade, but rocky in areas.

Mountain biking

I would recommend to begin by crossing the road and dropping downhill first. Nice great of easy/moderate rocky trail down to and along creek. I suggest this direction because the newer gravel on the other end makes the climb , out to the roadside trail, much nicer than the alternative direction. Added the reservoir loop and bits just to lengthen the ride back. Might connect the scotts run to the headwaters trail and intermediate ski hill for a full 2 hour ride. COOP’s is the best!

Brutal ascent with 1800+ feet of elevation gain. We then made it a loop connecting with Young’s Nature Trail. Difficult route, have water, take your time, and rest as needed.

Great hike with lots of shade, elevation gain, and historic sites along the way. The pedestrian footbridge has reopened. Today only the river access and train station parking lots were open. River access parking was 3/4 full by 9 am. No charge for parking while the park is closed. Lots of others on the overlook trail, but the full Maryland Heights Loop was mostly empty.

I didn’t get to complete this trail yesterday because I saw a black bear right before getting to the first overlook point and turned around! The rest of the trail was pretty though.

The falls are nice, crowded but nice. You can take this trail down stream and start rock hopping when it ends to continue to see the river and the views.

Hiking

This trail was lame. A town with so many awesome trails. This was boring. No waterfalls or water at all like some of the pics suggest. I gave 3 stars just because it was well marked and maintained.

Not really a “hike” per se, but a lovely walk in a very well maintained loop trail. Gorgeous!

Highly recommend!! It’s a short, easy hike. Lots of shade and the rocks are phenomenal to walk through! We cut over on rhododendron and looped back following the map to add some extra distance.

Beautiful view at the end! We hiked with two small children in hiking backpacks and two dogs. Minimal bugs and lots of shade. The trail is pretty rocky, so good shoes are important. It was muddy in areas, but easy to get around.

Great gravel path. Flat. Benches along the way. I’d never seen this very lovely side of Huntington! Wonderful!

Great for running. Overgrown in a few parks with some technical rocky sections. Started at redman and ended at the north fork mountain parking lot. Finished in 2:10.

Parked at the Chambers Farmhouse. Hardly any people. Easy walk on gravel and mowed grass. We had a slight breeze so no excessive problems with bugs. Dog, teenager and I enjoyed the weather, history, and the overlook.

Great trail. Mostly all shaded, except out on the rocks of course. Coming back out is an incline and will definitely have your heart pumping. The view at the end is worth it though.

Beautiful, short walk around the top of Spruce Knob. Try to hit it at sunset! It was chilly, even in July.

We hiked this route in May 2020 and were not disappointed! This is one of our favourite trails in KSF, with excellent varieties of fungi and wild plants and herbs. Deer are frequently seen on this trail and you can easily spot their tracks.

Nice trail that offers a bit of everything. Start on the low side (left at the intersection) to follow the river and you will get a steady uphill for the second half of the hike. The Fern meadow on the upper section is a nice end to the hike.
