Sods Circuit - Dolly Sods Wilderness Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Dolly Sods is practically an official requirement for the West Virginia backpacker. It’s not an exaggeration to say there’s no place like this.

Just the main highlights include a forest rich in biodiversity, backcountry waterfalls along Red Creek, perfect backcountry campsites, and, of course, what Dolly Sods is best known for: sweeping vistas in the upland sods area among acres of rock outcroppings, wind-flagged red spruce trees, and blueberry thickets. You will wonder if you’re still in West Virginia."
