What an experience!! Finding the park in the mids of WV wildreness proved to be a slight challenge (thanks to locals for pointing us in the right direction). There were only a couple of die-hard hunters in the camp with plenty of spacious camps sites for our 2 human + 4 canines tent. However, keep in mind this was Thanksgiving weekend. Finding the trail head (by the camp site 27) was easy and since it's mostly folloing grassy or gravel roads it was just as easy to follow. FYI - Trout pond trail follows purple marking, where the Long Mt. Trail follows the yellow marking. Difficult rating was probably little overrated though...it's only 7 miles (not the 8.4) and besides the initital climb the remaining trail is either very gradually inclining or declining. With plenty of time spent "smelling the roses" it took us less than 4 hrs.
