This trail is in the Greenbrier State Forest and can be used as part of Kate's Mountain Loop. You travel essentially straight up the side of Kate's Mountain but neither myself nor my dog had too much trouble.

This was a hike full of great views of the gorge! Plenty of overlooks. I hiked the full trail instead of the turnaround at Diamond Point that is sometimes recommended and got to see a few more great views because of it. Also, people were putting down gravel on the path when we went making it a less muddy treck. My dog and I loved it and I can't wait to take my friends.

I started off hiking Devil's Creek Trail with my dog. While it was wet from the recent rain and there was a lot of mud, it was still enjoyable. From that trail there is the option to branch off and do the Roxalia Spring Trail. That trial is essentially completely overgrown on the entire back half. Many of the trail markers have fallen off the trees and at one point we had to spend almost 45 minutes just trying to figure out where the path might be. I do not recommend this trail at this time.

This was a tough hike (lots of steep downhill coming down) but my dog and I enjoyed it. I couldn't find either of the marked overlooks (heard they were overgrown) and the trail on the back side of the mountain doesn't have a sign like the others so I wasn't sure about the enterance for a while.

The trail was pretty overgrown and it was hard to pick it back up after you crossed the road several times. My dog enjoyed climbing the ravine though and once we found the trail, the history of it was really fascinating. You are hiking the path of the soldiers
