We went to Dolly Sods, beautiful day for a hike and a drive. Not many cars, they were all parked in on spot.

Liz Nicholson

Amazing views and so much to do out here.

Christopher Boyer

Would like to see more established backpacking trails.

Michael Casey

Beautiful area of the country. Dolly Sods, Spruce Knoband Davis, WV are wonderful places.to visit, especially if you love outdoor activities.

Mark Clay

Very beautiful roads to travel. With camp sites available.

Dave Koczur

Beautiful views on many of the trails. Seneca Rock trail takes you to the top of the mountain that rock climbing usually is used on other similar rocky mountains.

Todd Gessner

Loved everything about it. The trails were beautiful.

Corrinne Steimle

This place is ethereal at every turn.

Kaci McDonald

Absolutely stunning! Had a great time and met some wonderful people. The first night we did see what looked to be Bigfoot fighting a bobcat, and the day we left a smiling man in red glasses drinking eggnog outside his Winnebago gave us directions back to the main road. A women by the name of Pigeon gave us a tour around town. 10/10 would go back!

Richard Spencer

One of my favorite places to visit. Let's make sure it's protected for ever.

Marissa White

Absolutely breathtaking! Beautiful area and an easy drive to mostly anything you can imagine!

Steve Lugabihl

I don't have words for this place. It is the only place I ever want to be when the weather starts to cool and summer fades into autumn. There is solitude here. And quiet solace for the healing of our hecticly paced lives. The mountains fold you into them and change your perspective. They reach into your soul and leave their splendor and quietness. They call to you forever after and leave you changed.

Z Johnston

One of the few places in the eastern US where you can feel alone.

Steve Burt

Visited the area where my father was in a plane crash. First time there. Beautiful area.

Eliza Baker

It's incredibly beautiful and peaceful.

Anthony Feliciano

Such a beautiful place with some really friendly folks.

Tracey Spencer McCarty

Live the Blue Bend Area swimming area which joins the camp ground which is deep in the heart of Allegheny Mtns

Nadana Ravishankar

Nice location for hiking, trails and full day of visit to enjoy the nature. Quite a large mountain, small waterfalls, forest area and picnic areas. We spent 3 hours there and will be back here for sure. There are lots of hidden areas to enjoy the day.

Kevin James

The food was great. The service was outstanding, they went the extra mile to meet our special needs.

KC Childers

Get out and experience the great outdoors!! Beautiful scenery and wildlife! God gave us some wonderful things.

Antonio

I believe that all of the national parks are very interesting and unique

Calvin Ross

Beautiful sites and well maintained.

Paula Bowers

BEAUTIFUL PLACE FOR FISHING, KAYAKING OR CANOEING AND TUBING

Nicole Reid

Did about 600 miles on motorcycles throughout the mountains and forest. Only thing to watch out for on motorcycles is many roads are not paved or are very poorly paved so that's something to be aware of. It is extremely rural and many places are out of business so stay gased up and download your GPS for offline usage and there will be zero cell reception throughout most of the forest. Many interesting places to see and it really is truly beautiful. Avoid the routes if you are in a large truck or towing anything as you will be very displeased with the amount of extremely sharp turns and incline and decline throughout the mountains. Motorcycle riders be aware the rain hits the forest frequently and washed gravel into the roads on almost every turn. Great place to adventure and support local businesses.

Melissa Freeman

Awesome! Quiet, beautiful, renews your spirit.

T Collins

Beautiful roads, gorgeous scenery!! So peaceful and relaxing!!

Bill Davis

How do you rate a national forest? This is one fine forest though. Tellin' ya' what buddy. Very fine.

Tim B

We hiked the North Fork trail to Chimney top and it was very nice. Trail markers were well placed and visible with just a little bit of looking and we even began our hike in the dark to reach the top by sunrise. The trail seems well maintained and had very few fallen trees or blocked sections and we even went during the government shutdown so no rangers for several weeks to check the trails. The hike up was some work and had a "hard" rating on Alltrails but well worth it when you get to see the views at the top.

Charlotte Local

Nice place to go hiking. Make sure to look at the maps.

Don Didenour

West vergina is a very beautiful place

hi hi

I’d leave five stars but well, I guess I have to tell the story. I took my kid up there to hike around and check it out. He loves nature, being a Boy Scout and all, so it was a nice treat to have some bonding time. However, and it’s up to you if you believe me or not, while we were on a walk in the woods one day, we saw something…strange. Someone had parked a Winnebago in a small clearing in these woods. We heard rustling coming from near it, and thought it must’ve been a raccoon or something. However, standing there was a large, looming figure with bright red eyes and wings? I wasn’t sure. I know you probably think I’m crazy. But anyway, I picked my son up and bolted. I’ve never forgotten those glowing red eyes…

Lance Sheldon

Had a great day hiking all around for 15 miles

Jerry Camp

Beautiful country Great camping and trout fishing.

Amy Smith

Mountains are beautiful. I wish they had better maps of how to drive through to see the higjlights like TN does.

Roger Saddler

Love this place,. Cass Railroad is the best family trip.ever

Amy Hanlon

Aaron Ely

Dolly Sods was a great hike. Would have been more enjoyable if paths had some sort of path markings.

Kerri Lane

Gorgeous valley views, the tower was a little disappointing as now the trees have overgrown the tower and you cant really see over. There is not flushing toilets, its one enclosed outhouse. One meaning ladies....use your very best hover skills if you absolutely have to go.

Are you up to the challenge of walking? If so then you'll be in for a treat. Beautiful trail and scenery around each bend in the trail. Wear sturdy boots and pack water for your journey.

Natalie Quinn

Beautiful vistas, and a great venue for a bike race

Patricia Butcher

The park is even nicer than I remember. The grounds and the pool fantastic. Paddle boats and fishing something for the whole family. The camp ground by the river is nice but the Beaver Creek campground is a wonderful area too!

Amazing. Must see.

Mike Gray

I've been hiking, camping, climbing, biking, birdwatching and sightseeing in the Monongahela NF for over three decades and this NF stands up to any place on earth for history, culture, adventure and scenic beauty, all feeling quite remote while located conveniently within day trip range of so many amenities.

Kathy Hoffner

This is my home. I love it here.

sean rose

A lovely national forest with many hiking trails, beautiful scenic overlooks, picnic areas and places to visit. If you pass through the Richwood-Millpoint stretch of WV route 55, I highly recommend visiting The Falls of Hills Creek, the Cranberry Glades Botanical Area boardwalk as well as the Scenic Highway for beautiful views and a great educational experience.

Michael Byrd

Gorgeous Nat'l Forest! The locals are mostly very friendly... But some private land owners within the Forest aren't... so beware

Beautiful park that has its share of mountains and lakes. It can be difficult navigating around here as most places lack any satellite connection, so make sure you know where you're going before you lose your signal.

Absolutely beautiful! It’s definitely a hike but there are benches available on the way up if you need them. No bathroom at the top so take care of business beforehand so you can really enjoy the serenity and scenery.

Breath taking views, very clean walking paths and areas, the one time the facilities were not as clean as I had seen them (restrooms), but...the observation tower is extremely stable and good for even ones that may have a height issue.

PAMELA D POOHBEAR GEORGE

Beautiful scenery and lots great hiking in Dolly Sods Wilderness. The hiking is more challenging than the elevation change would suggest due to lots of mud and uneven footing.

Spectacular views, nice, although sometimes quite muddy, trails, and opportunities to see rare plant life and enjoy wildlife for the whole family.

The most awesome bike ride.
