Trail starts great down through huge boulders. Declines down into a valley with a beautiful creek and the clay furnace. The second half of the trail is pretty open without a lot of great scenery.

We came on a cold Sunday and this was a very nice, short walk. We actually continued on the Mont Chateau Trail all the way to Cheat Lake. Both Mont Chateau North and South are very rocky, much like a stream bed. We found the North trail to be harder to traverse. Definitely worth the Sunday trip!

I loved this hike. I am currently over 400 lbs, and I completed this in under three hours. If I can do it, you can too!

Neat and easy trail if you're looking to get outside without the exercise getting to strenuous. Ton of people on the day I went which was expected as the park gates were closed and this was the closest trail to the parking area.

A fun little hike, especially if you enjoy bouldering. The trail is pretty flat, but the “rock city” is enchanting and provides some fun climbing, so bring your shoes and a crash pad! We went in the late fall and saw only a few other hikers.

Cool, plus there's a hidden waterfall that's runs off the lake

Nice leisurely trail!

I have been hiking some of the trails at Ohiopyle and Farmington Pennsylvania, and also within the Coopers Rock State Park near Morgantown, West Virginia. The drive to these aren’t bad, a twenty five to fifty minute trip. I live just a few miles east of Morgantown and walked the White Park Trails for the first time after seeing it listed on the All Trails App. It’s a wonderful trail with lots of scenery and even if you don’t mountain bike it’s neat getting a glimpse of the mountain bikers going through the trees and up and down the humps and bumps. Not only do I love this trail, but it’s right in Morgantown and only a fifteen minute drive or less from where I live. Did not know this trail system existed, so thanks for having it listed on your app. I will be hiking it quite often.

This was a fun, short trail! Was the only person on the trail today! Clearly marked, well-maintained!

I enjoyed a stupendous mountain bike ride on this trail. I rode the loop counterclockwise and enjoyed just enough rocks, roots and climb for a 66 year old on a dual suspension trail bike.

Easy trail that runs along the road. Was useful for getting through the park quickly and to get to other trails. Very easy to walk and lots of people.

Fun, easy walk through the rocks. Would like to go back and take my time to enjoy the formations. It was pretty busy when I was there, so I would like to go back during a weekday to enjoy the trail in solitude.

Nice wide trail and the furnace is really cool.

The recommended route is good - except the final stretch on the clay trail is open to the sun and is a flat fire road - probably could have taken a different course. Highly recommend deviating at the beginning and starting on rattlesnake trail and then cutting over along the giant boulders. Very beautiful.

If you like tons of rocks, natural Waterways on trail and it's really not a loop it connects with the roadside Trail after 2.5 Mi then this Trail is for you.

Good hike on a beautiful day. The rock city trail will test your feet but still a good loop. Be sure to check out Ravens Rock.

Beautiful! Peaceful and enjoyable for the entire family!

One of my favorite trails in Cooper's Rock --- I very rarely see anyone else using it.

Really had a good time on this trail when we went. The furnace was really cool and we even found some geocaches!

I took my 5 year old and 2 year old. They did great and my 5 year old says he "liked the clay furnace." Will do this one more.

Hiked with my wife a few years ago ... nice trail ... and pleasant scenery as so many of the Cooper's Rock trails are.

Nice but I generally prefer a bit more distance from roads.

This is a well marked great trail that will give a hiker lots of varying terrain and plenty of large fissures to explore within the boulders. The snow gave us a layer of difficulty that was not expected but added beauty to one's senses.

This was a nice trail that was easy walk overall. The interpretative signs added a unique history of the Henry Clay Iron Furnace. The sounds of streams babbling around the area was an added feature. Would have liked to have hiked to Cheat Lake from the furnace point but was not prepared for a rigorous hike late in the day.

I really enjoyed this park. Park in the main lot by Cooper's Rock and walk 5 min to the really nice and fenced in observation area on top. A trail takes you below the rock and right through a really neat rock garden that's fun to explore. Once through that stone labyrinth you can take a trail down to a secluded beach on Cheat Lake or go uphill past an old iron furnace ruins to the road. Follow the road to the Raven Rock trail and walk a mike or so to the rock outcropping. Raven Rock is not fenced so be careful. It is the best photo spot in the park followed by Cooper's Rock. Don't miss either one. The gift store below the parking lot has great food and souvenirs, too. This was one of my favorite hikes!

This is a beautiful trail that gets heavy foot traffic in the tourist season. It's well marked, well maintained and is family/pet friendly. The "rock city" at the end of the trail is absolutely amazing, but beware of rattlesnakes!! This trail is one of my top three trails in the park (along with Ravens Rock and the Underlook). Don't forget about the R.C. trail when visiting Coopers Rock, you won't be disappointed!!
