Not a bad trail. There are parts where the blazes become nonexistent, like near the pond.

Went after it had just snowed and it was beautiful. Looked like there had been some cross county skiing done on the main trails. Was still easily navigable even with the trails covered by snow at parts. Dog friendly as well.

Excellent short hike. Beautiful views. Will be back again!

This is part of the Maruon county Rail Trail system. This trail connects to the Monongahela trail at the Prickett's Fort parking lot and goes all the way to Morgantown. After crossing the bridge over the inlet at Prickett's Fort the trail is no longer paved.

My review is about biking only. This trail appears on other sites as a gravel rail trail for biking but is barely suitable for that. I'm an experienced cyclist with over 100K miles on all surfaces. Started from Hendricks on 28mm tires. Made it about a mile and turned back. The surface is not "gravel" it is railroad ballast; 1 - 2 inch rocks. Sure you can MTB it at 5 mph but what's the point of that? Better to hike it and really enjoy the scenery.

On February 2, 2020 my car was broken into on the Carriage Trials parking lot... My purse was stolen with all my credit cards, etc. There are no Camaras or police presence. Another Mercedes was also vandalized the same time. NOT SAFE.. this was in 75 degrees weather at 2 p.m. Sunday.

I really enjoyed this trail. (That could also be because it was a 60-degree day in early February!) Like another reviewer said before, the scenery was nicely varied. I loved the train track and the falls at the end after hiking through beautiful scenery. Nice climb both ways. It was pretty brambly and pretty snowy in some parts, but they were nice little challenges that kept the hike interesting. I started at 12:45 and ended at 4:45 with a few breaks. I tend to hike pretty quickly though. Only saw one other party on the trail — three guys that had been fishing and told me they caught a large trout before letting it go.

Great trail— however, I wouldn’t say that it is kid friendly. Maybe for older kids, but it was not a very good trail for an almost 4 year old and an almost 2 year old. The views are great, and the waterfalls are beautiful! I recommend 10/10!

My 12 y/o terrier and I did Big Schloss from Wolf Gap Rec on a 65* bright sunny day in February. We ran into 6 other groups of hikers - can't imagine how busy it gets in the peak seasons. The first mile is the physical challenge. After that it's pretty level and easy going. Everyone we saw today was over the age of 50 if that's helps any readers. The views are magnificent, and captured at more spots than just the end of the hike. Well marked trail the whole way. Some great spots for a picnic up there. Overall this was a highly rewarding hike both visually and physically. Will be doing it again soon for sure.
