I would consider this hike easier than Seneca Rocks Trail any day. We did this with a 4 year old & she hiked the whole way by herself. Gorgeous views!

Went May18-19. Overnight.
Lots of rain week prior and the night of, creeks were high and fast making crossing challenging, especially at night. Camped above main falls. Beautiful hike out despite wet feet for 10 miles. (there and back)

Beautiful in the winter.
Went Dec. 31st solo for an over night. Temps in the teens, singles over night, foot of snow, creek and falls almost completely frozen. Amazing nook to camp under right next the main falls.
Be careful, cell service is zero. Cold weather is breathtaking, but dangerous.

The south terminus trail head is at a radio tower. There’s only room for 2 cars to park along the road. Don’t block the tower service entrance. Once on the trail, it’s gentle up to the ridge and while on the ridge. There are dozens of scenic overlooks. It’s absolutely breathtaking. Leave yourself plenty of time to enjoy the views afforded by this hike. It’s a challenging hike but not too difficult.

It was snowing up there it was cold but a good hike.

Just did an hour out-and-back at the southern terminus along 33. Parking was not fun- just a narrow strip along the road with ambiguous no-trespassing signs. Coming in from the north/west side (out of Germany Valley) requires a hairpin u-turn on a blind corner. However, once on the trail assuming you haven’t been run over it’s awesome. Big cliffs of Tuscarora quartzite and views of Germany Valley the whole way to Spruce Knob. Bring a good camera! Also read up on the local geology-makes the landscape even more amazing.

Great level trail. Great camping. Lots of water falls

Beautiful place for backcountry camping

Hiked in on allegheny trail to Seneca falls for some fly fishing...easy hike in until you get to the falls...the trail kind of disappears at that point and becomes difficult to follow...the fishing on Seneca creek is always great.

Some of the best views on the eastern seaboard. It's about a 2 hour walk up from Smoke Hole. Once you reach the top, the trail runs along the ridge and offers spectacular views. Be sure to bring enough water.

One of the most picturesque trails I've ever been on. Did the whole trail and back which took about 4 hrs maybe a little less.

We logged a 11.4 mile roundtrip with my GPS. This trail is well used and in good shape. There are areas of mud. On the route to the big waterfall there are many other small ones along the trail. There are many camp sites for overnight stays, most are set up with rock crafted seats and firepits. Five Star Trail for scenery alone!

This is one of the best hikes in the state as far as amazing views go. Roughly 25 miles and a full two days...3 days would probably be more enjoyable. No water on the trail so slip in on the fire road half way and stash some water. Great hike! Enjoy!

Are Dogs allowed on this trail or has anyone seen Hikers with them?

Very pleasant hike with wide trails and periodic stream crossings. The elevation change wasn't super challenging. Very few people in the morning, but definitely busier in the afternoon

This trail was more than 17 miles are watches tracked 30 miles with some taking off the beaten path to see the views. We did the trail in 2 days which was hard would recommend 3 days. Had some steep hills and a long downhill at the very end. It was worth the views of the backside of Seneca Rocks and amazing views seeing into Maryland from Chimney Rock.

We hiked this trail from the Seneca Creek trail to get back to the Huckleberry trail. We saw the sign for the trail and crossed the footbridge over the river but then had a bit of trouble finding the trail as there isn't another blaze until further up the trail. We went up the hill on what looked like a trail and took another path which led to a campsite and then eventually found the right trail which if I remember correctly was by the campsite and definitely to the left of the footbridge. It was pouring down rain which didn't help. The meadow had beautiful views but we weren't able to enjoy it as much with the rain and the trail became a stream. It would be nice to try this trail again in the fall.

This was a beautiful trail with many great campsites. We started at the Huckleberry trailhead so we only hiked the northern section of the trail. This was definitely the busiest of all the trails. We had to cross the river three times, the deepest part was almost to our knees but the portion we hiked wasn't that difficult. The water was cold but not unbearable. I would love to visit again in the fall.

We took the Lumberjack trail from the Huckleberry trail. The trail was very muddy but the High Meadows trail and the campsite on Seneca trail were beautiful so it was worth hiking to get to it.

The trail is 25 miles and hiked it three weeks ago south to north. One of the best backpacking trips in the South. There is one source of water halfway. Not 17 miles.

Beautiful hike, would consider this a very easy trail for experienced backpackers. Water was a bit cold but went for a swim anyways, creek crossings were great, did not have to take off boots or get feet wet. Trail was dry and in good shape. Would consider this trail again if was ever in the area again.

We were lucky enough to get some trail magic (in the form of a water refill). Not a lot of water up there, but the beauty of the ridge makes up for it!

Completed 5 of 13 miles (fm FR112 to Tom Lick Trail). MUDDY! Super slick. Would recommend avoiding for a while.

Hiked this 4th of July weekend. Water was cold and running high. Still passable, though. Another couple of days of rain and it may not be. Start off early in the morning to avoid the crowds.

Beautiful vistas and really great camp sites! No water makes things a bit more difficult. A really great hike!

September 19,2015, Allegheny Trail (701) Trail Head near Bowden, WV. I completed a short solo hike, east of Rt. 33. I hiked an hour in and made a turn around back out the same track. Great views of the creek below the trail.

Hiked in about 3/4 of a mile past judys Creek Trail. Beautiful trail couple Creek crossings that's why we turned around was a little to high to cross down beyond judys. Good places to camp if you want to turn it into an overnighter.
