Excellent trail for hiking as well as seeing different fungi and flowers from spring to fall!

Pleasant walk, gradual uphill grade.

Great Bike/Walking trail. Lots of people enjoy this trail on a daily basis, both on bike and by foot.

The trail was in great shape! Perfect time of year to see wildlife and fall foliage.

Robe this trail 15 years ago. But now plan to ride it every year. Lots of changes and new camping spots added.

Nice walk but not what I would call a trail. It was very crowded and noisy but well worth the time.

This trail was the first one we rode with our new bikes and did so on the way home from purchasing our new toys. Since it is close to home, we go here about once a week. It is an easy trail and is not crowded at all. There is a slight grade out of Weirton, but the ride back is all downhill. This is a great trail for anyone to enjoy. Have fun!

Was a great trial, however, I'm only giving it a 4 star because once you get to the top and start down the other side it was not properly marked.

You start on Davis Creek trail and split off on white hollow trail. It is not called Kanawha state forest trail. The sign leading to White Hollow trail was blazed orange, but the blazes through the trail were blue ! Once you are to the top you must walk down a gravel road a piece and reconnect with white hollow trail. Once you go down the trail and make it to the look out rock is where the blazes become confusing. There are lighter blue markers leading to the right wrap around the rock, but the trail actually goes over the hill and to the left. Once you make it to the bottom, you will need to either go back the way you came or walk down the main road a piece and reconnect with Davis Creek trail.

This trail is very challenging in places and easy in others. Overall this was a great hike !!!

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.

great hike with my dogs.

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.

I did 2.25 miles ... it's a nice river walk ... quiet and peaceful ... scenery was ok. good place to bike, jog, or walk.

Took the dogs for a walk on this trail and went about a mile. The trail was clear, clean, and mowed. It is flat so not challenging that way. A couple places to watch a creek.

Nice scenic trail. Tranquil

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.

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!

great hike. During the winter months, you can start this hike in the outer parking area at the entrance to the State Forest.

Started on the Overlook trail then took the Rattlesnake trail to the Rock City trail to Ridge trail where we took a trail down to the lake. Then came back Mont Chateau trail to Rhododendron trail. Great hike!!

Went on a Monday so didn't experience any of the crowds that others have. The rock city trail was really nice and seemed to be the only one on it at the time. Overlook is also beautiful. I'd absolutely recommend it - many different trails.

I've hiked and biked parts of this trail many a time over the past four years. It's an easy trail that's very flat and goes on for miles and miles (79 of em'). Great place to go hiking or biking, and there are several areas that you can stop at to venture down to the river (yay for swimming holes!). There are actually bathrooms every 4 miles or so. It's a really pretty place to visit during any season of the year!
