this is a great trail. my wife and I did this trail and thought it was kind of boring at first but the end results are breathtaking. i would recommend hiking boots, there are some ankle eaters along this trail.

First time on a trail with my Jeep, very fun!

Rocky and fun lots of beautiful spots to look out along the way

Great trail.

Spot on for the rating of moderate, it’s a good hike !!! The scenery, views and photo ops are simply superb. One of my favorite trails in WV. ❤️

Amazing views and photo ops, lots of steps but point your camera and shoot and you have a postcard !!!!

What a trail! Fairly short hike but the amount of time you will spend on the cliffs enjoying the many AMAZING views will turn it into a long outing. Views of the bridge, gorge, and river are all spectacular. The cliff walls are very impressive as well with lots of rock climbers on them. One of the best hikes I’ve done this year.

great view

The number one thing coming from this is to pack water and be prepared to sweat. The walk down was pretty with one spot giving a nice view of the gorge, as you head down you’ll meet the mine which was very interesting. Continuing heading down the 821 1/2 steps (half a step was missing at the beginning so watch out) you’ll be met with the beautiful dilapidated mine site. Now you’ll be met with the toughest obstacle, going all the way up. It’s rough but worth it for the workout burn. Taking this again sometime later.

Beautiful!

OMG! This hike is wonderful.. Pretty easy. Guaranteed beauty. Make sure you make it to Diamond Point.

Great trail along a beautiful stream

Did as a day hike for bridge day weekend .. Great views for stream the whole way .. want to do a overnight hiking n fishing trip now

this was an easy trail. nice view of the bridge from the rock you can stand on. great hike

The view was great from this trail. Not hard at all only a few uphills at the end. For good light if taking photos, recommend earlier morning, before noon. I was there between 5pm and 7pm and could get very good light for photos. We at lunch at the Cathedral Cafe and it was really good. Even from the Visitor center over looks, photos are best before noon. "Take a Hike to see at Site". I love hiking to see a wonderful view. ENJOY

This trail is worth some of the mud and trekking through the rhododendrons. the outlooks are amazing, all of them. I went on a cool 46 degree overcast Saturday and it was still worth it. definitely go check this one out for the awesome views.

Nice trail with a very rewarding view at the end. We had alot of traffic but I imagine it's because bridge day is coming up. Gets a little rocky at one point so watch your step.

Nice trail, I logged 11.6 roundtrip miles starting from the trailhead near I-64 and hiking all the way to the waters edge of the New River, this mileage included the spur trail to Kate's Falls. There were a few trees down but not hard to get around or over. The trail was also a little muddy and slippery but nothing extreme! Met a few other hikers on the trail and enjoyed stopping and chatting with them for a few minutes. The rating for this trail is no where near hard. The trail is fairly level with a slight grade with a few places where you climb up and over rock outcroppings, but again, nothing extreme. The rating on this trail needs to be changed to moderate but it would be a very low moderate, I will see what I can do to edit the rating. Happy trails fellow hikers!

Easy trail with a few stairs that take you down to one very nice view of the gorge, the New River, and the bridge. Easy access from the visitor center. Be sure to go into the visitors center, the staff is very helpful on your adventures into this beautiful area.

A very nice view of the bridge and gorge! Logged 3.4 mile roundtrip from the Kaymoor Top parking lot. Trail was muddy in a few spots and the creek crossing was easy to cross. Note: the main parking lot for this trail is temporarily closed while they do improvements!

Loved the 80 step staircase! Would love to see it in the winter with no leaves blocking the view. I logged 3.4 miles roundtrip hike that including adventuring around the Tipple and also down to the Coke Ovens. The trail was wet and muddy but not hazardous. All of the mine structures were very nice to see and learn about. To me, climbing the stairs back to the slate track level - powder house was easier than the rest of the climb on the trail to the parking lot.

This trail is well traveled. They have been working on this trail and Improvements are in the final completion stage. It has a great view of the New River Gorge and Bridge at the end on a big rock outcropping.

Wonderful day hike. Got to see some interesting ruins of forgotten coal times.

Amazing workout! Feel the burn! I’m glad it was raining cause I was pouring sweat, couldnt tell what was rain and what wasn’t! Oh watch out for the chickens when you drive in!

Wow. This is a beautiful trail. Did the full out and back and it was a treat. Following the Glade Creek the full way provide ample opportunity to go swimming or to sit back and listen to the water. What a great hike!
