Good trail with lots to see. Tons of mushrooms !

The mushrooms were amazing. Great short day hike.

Nice wooded trail. Runs in and loops with Beech Glen Trail. Sections of challenging elevations changes.

Nice trail. A little steep in places but if you take your time you should really enjoy this trail.

I liked this one. I believe it’s one of the most well marked trails I’ve been on in KSF. It was a HIKE to get to the top of the ridge (about a mile all uphill), but it was a very nice walk once you get to the top! We only hiked about two miles out and turned around for a total of four miles. The trail did continue pass where we turned.

We did this while there was snow on the ground. It was a vigorous hike but not too bad. We did this with the Girls Who Hike WV group.

Pretty tough trail - definitely moderate, lots of steep hills. It is a loop, but making the loop requires walking along the road for about 1/2 mile.

This trail is clearly marked and easy to find if you are already walking along Davis creek trail toward the South end.
However, if you are coming just for this trail, I think the best place to park is at the other end of the trail. There is a small gravel lot on the right before the turn off to Dunlop Hollow. Follow the trail up a steep hill, and you will intersect a gravel road. This intersection can be a bit confusing, but follow the arrows on the wooden signs and you will find the other half of the trail a short way down the gravel road. When While Hollow trail ends, it will intersect Davis Creek Trail. Turn left, follow Davis Creek trail to the end, and then go left along the road about half a mile to your car.
In summer, there is a bit of overgrowth on some parts of this trail. Wear long pants or wait until cooler weather if this is something that bothers you.

Tough trail for beginners, especially with kids in tow! Would do it again though!

Only did about half this trail as we connected to it through Polly Trial. A semi-steep descent through the woods

Great trail but definitely more than moderate for casual hikers. It's all straight up the first half and down the rest. Definitely would recommend trekking poles.

I thoroughly enjoyed this hike and incorporated it into an extended trip via the many gas well access roads that dot the area. A word of caution though, some of the trails at KSF are not well marked and most of the access roads are remote and DO NOT appear on the park maps or on Alltrails.com. I particularly enjoyed the walk along Wildcat Ridge. We encountered a turkey and lots of bear scat but no bears. The trail covers everything from boggy hollows to breezy ridgetops.
