Playing at Bear Rocks is a blast, and the views are incredible.

While it's true that several of the trails (Bear Rocks, Dobbin's Grade) end up being more like creeks with any bit of rain, I find Dolly Sods to be a fantastic place to hike. It's a great change from the typical lower elevation, mid-west forest trails that I usually hike on. There are great open air views separated by pine forests. The aforementioned Dobbin's Grade does have a swamp for about the last 3rd of it's length (going east), but if you don't mind taking it slow and easy you can get through it mostly dry. The trails on the south side of the sods are much rockier, reminding me of portions of the AT in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Decent views, but watch out for rattlesnakes! This area has tons of them.

Seneca Rocks is one of my favorite places in WV. The view is beautiful and the little shops around the base of the rocks are so cute!

There are caves in the area so it is a great opportunity to do some spelunking!

Very Beautiful park, with some awesome spots. Only bad thing is some of the trails aren't the greatest marked and could possibly get lost.

The trails I took were the worse I have ever hiked! They went from hiking on a stream bed to sloshing through marsh land.Obviously whoever built the trails has no idea how to build a trail. Most of it is highly eroded becoming a stream bed in many cases. It is clear from the well worn side trails that being wet or marshy is more the rule that the exception.
Views are very nice and landscape is interesting and varied. I wish the trails were at least average which would motivate me to give it a higher score.
