Nice walk that’s scenic and pleasant. A gem on the edge of Thomas

We walked down this trail today, beautiful area, great trail. There was 20 of us. Thanks to Canaan Valley, they bused us to the top and we walked down the 9.17 miles then they took us back to Canaan to our cars. Nice hike took roughly 4 hours.

Good hike if you are looking for something to get miles in. You can drive in on the dirt road and save yourself approx 2 miles at the beginning and end of just walking on a dirt road. Lots of gravel so you may want to protect your dogs feet if they are sensitive. Probably best to go when the leaves are off so you can see more...be prepared for not a lot of water. The map makes it look like the river is right beside the trail but its not...couple falls that come down off the mountain that are good sources but theres only two or three.

Great hike! Crossing the creek was interesting. The water was a little high so I had to take a minute to get up the nerve to make the jump across very slippery rocks. Not much to see along the trail but a good workout. I didn’t encounter any wildlife until I hit Olsen Tower Rd on the way back to my car. A bear running up over the hillside to the road gave me a pretty good scare. Also a few deer crossing the road.

i was just on a small portion of the trail at douglas falls and overlook but it was gorgeous highly recommend checking it out. just past the postoffice in thomas take a right drive towards douglas there will be a deadend sign on the left take it

Great trail! Be careful of the wildlife...saw bear and wolf tracks this past Saturday.

I also tried this in August and was stopped just 10 minutes in due to a rattlesnake.

If you are coming down Forest Road 717, look for a sign that says Allegheny Trail. Someone has helpfully carved Canyon Rim underneath it, but it's hard to see from the road. Nice hike, elevation changes were not too difficult. We did encounter two rattlesnakes sunning on the trail. One stopped us from completing the trail.
