We have done this trail a few times, mostly to backpack on weekend trips. We have actually never made it to the knob it's self but just before the knob next to the river is where we like to camp. it's a nice moderate trail. beware of bears. We have never seen one there but one time we spotted fresh bear tracks and another a hunter said his dog's just chased a bear in our direction, but we didn't see it. We did see quite a few deer near our camping spot. The trails are not marked but they are well traveled. Please leave nothing but footprints and stay on the trail as much as possible. oh and be sure to bring boots as this trail can get muddy at times.

Did this as a couple day overnight out and back. Lots of fun good views and not a lot of foot traffic. Kinda hard to get to the trail head but worth the effort.

Fun place for families; easy little walk from the parking lot for a great view of the falls. There's another nice overlook on the other side of the park, from a higher vantage point. Both are worth stopping for. Keep driving around the park and you'll encounter several nice waterfall views, trailheads for more legitimate hiking trails, and likely several very friendly deer waiting to be fed by tourists (don't do it!). Overall, a very picturesque park filled with mature rhododendrons and evergreen trees.

Just got back from a trip there. Beautiful scenery. A lot of the trail is very rocky. Not pebbles but large stones you have to negotiate. We happened to go in the rain and the trail was a creek with a few larger pools that presented challenges to keeping your feet dry. The creek was up do to the rain and was quite impressive. Multiple camps sights down by the creeks edge. We made it from the parking lot at the top of fire road 80 to the campsites in about 2 hours or so carrying packs.

Great, easy walk.

I hiked this today. Gorgeous hike, plenty of camp sites.... cross water 4 or 5 times and very muddy but the rocks that are everywhere serve a massive purpose!!!!! If those rocks weren’t strategically placed on the trail, you’d sink in the mud!!! Kudos to whomever did that! Also, the terrain changes a lot! You’re in thick woods then crossing water then in an open field with views of the mountains then you’re in the woods with leaves surrounding you....it’s definitely a trail I recommend! Next time, I’m camping

check road conditions when you're planning to do this trail! tried to get to this trail yesterday and it was completely inaccessible - forest rd 244 is closed for the year and with all the recent rain, canaan loop rd past lindy point was almost impassable (it's normally a rougher rd but it's currently full of giant pot holes and swamped in some areas). if you have a truck/jeep/4 wheeler you would probably be fine coming in from the lindy point side, but i couldn't make it in an AWD subaru.

Autumn colors are on full display right now and looking lovely as ever. This was a very easy walk in the woods, mostly stairs.

Beautiful day for a hike in Davis, WV. Parked at Blackwater Lodge and found many trails. Stop in the lodge first and ask for a trails map. Hiked app. 6 miles and I had the three trails I was on all to myself. Falls were running low due to the lack of rain lately. I am staying at Black Bear Lodge just South of Davis, very nice.

More forest than anything. Low falls however only to split before balance rock was completed.

beautiful scenery . Trail is well kept and used ,but offered some challenges . The fire was magnificent. Wish that the trail spilt off to the rockface overlook was better marked and wish that cutoff was widened.... it's so tight I was waiting for a snake or a bear to jump out at me lol

A beautiful short hike to see the waterfall. A nice way to stretch our legs after the 3.5 hour drive to WV - enjoy the scenery, then go on one of the other trails for a longer hike

We stayed in Davis, WV for a 4 day hiking vacation - We hiked this trail starting from the Western side - the parking is on 80, just off of Rt 32. It is about a mile from the parking to the real trail head - where Black Bird Knob, Big Stonecoal and Breathed Mountain Trail intersect. The hike is good, spanning both ridgelines as well as some covered areas. The ground tends to be very boggy in places - about halfway across we realized that there are strategically placed stones so you can get through. We hiked across and when we arrived at the Eastern side, detoured slightly to the trailer campground to the right - about 50 yards up the road. There was a picnic table we could sit at to eat, then we hiked back. While AllTrails says this is an 8.7 mile hike - for us it was 12 miles from car to car. We were fortunate to enjoy a patch of late season blueberries as we finished. My dog enjoyed it too.

This trail is extremely steep on the south side. I didn't do the north side. So if you are hiking south east to northwest, you are going to get a good workout in!

Be prepared to get muddy and wet. Lots of bogs and mud everywhere! I forget which trails exactly in Dolly Sods but you will cross some creeks. Some have stepping rocks, some don't! These trails are insanely beautiful but very difficult in most areas due to the terrain.

AMAZING
