Nice trail. Well marked. Fairly easy, but also a bit confusing. The main trail meets up with the outer loop which goes two different directions. It meets up again with the main trail that I back tracked on to the parking area. It was about 2.5 miles in total.

great time . made a 15 mile loop from here

Short easy walk with beautiful view. Great off roading trail (is a West Virginia road) just past where you park for Lindy point. But only lifted 4x4 or dirt or mountian bike can make it the whole way thru.

We drove an hour to where AllTrails mapped us for this trail, only to find it was in the middle of a residential neighborhood with no apparent parking. Waste of time, unless someone can provide better directions for where to park and get to trailhead. :-/

Great little trail for easy going hikers.

A varied trail - beautiful fields, ruins and history, partially running through a forest by a river. I'm not sure why it's rated as moderate though, it's definitely easy. There are a few places when you're on going slightly uphill for a minute, but this definitely felt way more like a walk than a hike.

-1 * because for about half of the trail, new developments and highways are visible and audible. I don't like hiking next to a highway, looking at new housing developments up ahead. There are some sections of the trail that are more remote, and where one is in fully absorbed in nature, but the highway parts really detract.

Love this hike!! Short and moderate. Good for all hikers! Pup friendly, and a great sunrise hike. Definitely recommend.

Walked many miles on this trail.

Beautiful trail!

Chimney Tops, IMHO is the best view in West Virginia. Jaw-dropping 360. Please note that the immediate area around the rock formation that is Chimney Tops is often closed off due to raptor activity. The spur of the North Fork Trail is extremely steep and unmarked, so access to mapping to locate it is suggested. Please do not disrupt the area if it is roped off- there are dozens of other beautiful views north and south of this point! We were lucky enough to be there later in the season and the rope was removed. From the Northern terminus trail head of the North Fork Mt Trail, one can go south bound for a heart pounding 1,970' climb in 2.7 miles. However, Starting at the next trailhead (Landis) south off on Smoke Hole road takes off several hundred feet vertical climb and is an easier but far less dramatic approach. Our particular trip this time evolved a shuttle vehicle- starting at the third traihead down Smoke Hole Rd. (Redman Trail) then northbound on North Fork and finish at Northern terminus for a beautiful 10+/- day hike.

Loved the hike beautiful scenery and very nice camping area. I would definitely go back every chance I get to.

Easy, beautiful view

Easy "hike" with a great view. Go at sunset for an even better view.

Today the 2nd day of December ended up a great day on the trail. It was 60 degrees and the clear. The trail is great. If you want a good moderately difficult trail this is it. Also can be mtn biked.

this by far is my favorite hike with a reward at the top...gorgeous 360 degree views.

Make sure you turn right at the fork with the medium size pile of rocks at the top to see the view. I went passed it and kept following the blue trail for awhile but not much there. Steep hike but nice enough view.

great trail

Beautiful, well-maintained trail.

Great trail. Going counter clockwise it starts around the lake and the latter half into the mountains. I went at the end of fall in mid November and the orange and yellow trees were beautiful.

Hiked from Keys Gap parking lot to where the trail breaks open to a clearing where the high tension wires come thru, almost two miles. The trail is moderate, and in true AT fashion there is plenty of uneven terrain. This section has a narrow trail section and today was happily holding water. I would do more of it again, when I can get an earlier start.

A walk in the park!! Very nice trail with benches and mileage markers that runs along side a river.

There are a couple really great lookouts, not the table rock, you have to go off the trail just a bit to find them, they are unmarked.

There’s a super cool damn on ur hike out to table rock. Very muddy! If you hike the loop it turn into a gravel road, look for a path into the woods on ur left, super cool old cemetery from the 1860’s

This is not an out and back. It is a downhill from Middle Ridge Singletrack trail to KSF road.

A nice trail to do with the family. The trail is well maintained.

The trail/fire road from the main road is very overgrown and flooded in some areas. Huckleberry trail can be easily missed. I had to circle back after missing it, and noticed the red marker only from the opposite side of the trail. Huckleberry was less muddy but still a lot of wet spots. It started snowing on my trip and it was beautiful. A lot flatter than I expected for a high point, but the 11.5 mile trek was still tiring. Took me just under 5 hours with lots of stops for pictures along the way and at the top.
