(Don't) Get Lost! Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"High above the eastern seaboard, West Virginia’s Roaring Plains offer you view after view of the mountainous horizon as you follow cairns along the rugged and rocky canyon rim. An ideal summer trip; consider timing your visit for late July or early August when the trails are aisles amid the blueberry bushes.

Among red spruce, open brushy terrain, and bogs, you’ll feel you’ve reached a completely different environment as you take in nearly endless views of the Alleghenies along Canyon Rim Trail and the Hidden Passage. If you enjoy a good route-finding challenge, then this trip is certainly for you."
