The Road Sucks
out de 2021
We tried to do this one, but it didn't work out. The roads suck, narrow and rough. We braved them for a few miles and then the fog was so thick we couldn't see anything, so we decided it wasn't worth continuing. I don't really know if we were 1 mile from the "view" or 50 miles, there were no signs are clear indications. I personally wouldn't go down that road again, it sucked that bad.

Thought we were on the wrong road because of how bad it was
ago de 2021 • Família
That is definitely a rough road up for a woman taking her senior parents and kids in a sedan. The lack of bathroom facilities is a challenge for my family. What a view though!

Road and no signs ruined it
abr de 2021
The bad road with no signages means we got lost. After three hours we reached sort of look out. It was muddy. Not good experience.

Beautiful Wilderness
abr de 2021
We visited Dolly Sods Wilderness for a day hike with our dog along Red Creek Trail. As a wilderness, trails aren't blazed but there are signs at intersections and it's pretty easy to follow. The water level was very high, so there was no safe way to cross the creek, so we stayed on the trail as far as we could without crossing. There were several nice waterfalls on little tributaries of Red Creek. It's a pretty popular area, but we only saw a few backpackers during our hike.

Nice place to camp
mar de 2021 • Casais
So I've been here as a child camping with my mom and dad. It's probably a good place for hiking or fishing. I remember that it's at a pretty high elevation and there are a lot of trees that are slightly lopsided due to the wind up there. It causes the branches to all lean slightly towards one side.

Stunning view in autumn from Bear Rocks overlook
out de 2020
This is called a wilderness area for a reason: wild, undeveloped, unpaved road, little to no restroom facilities, etc.
There are many hiking trails and areas to for back-packing. There is one rustic campground. Views from on top are stunning, especially in autumn and especially from the Bear Rocks overlook where the Allegheny Front marks the Eastern Continental Divide.

You forget you're in West Virginia - beware of mud
out de 2020
My family drove through Dolly Sods once a handful of years ago, and I had always wanted to go back to actually get out of the car and go hiking. I planned to go when the leaves turned, and I decided to go yesterday. I live 2.5 hours away, so this trip took up a whole day for me. I went alone and took a photo of the hiking map (it is helpfully posted at each trailhead) to use as a guide.
I will say, as someone who is directionally challenged, I did have a couple moments of mild panic thinking I had gone too far or missed a turnoff. I started at Bear Rocks, then connected Raven Ridge, Dobbin Grade, Beaver Dam (I meant to get off here and walk back to my car, but got turned around somehow...), back onto Dobbin Grade and connected back to Bear Rocks. I was out there for about 4 hours, with several stops along the way. I'd love to go back, maybe in the spring, and hike along the lower half of the trails.
WARNING: Even though it had been a week or so since it rained, there were areas of thick, sinking mud. Luckily I had waterproof hiking boots on, or I would have been in a serious mess. I would also appreciate if there were more trail blazes or something, instead of just signs where the trails connected.
Wear appropriate gear, check the weather, have a screenshot or printout of the trail map, plenty of water and some snacks, and you should be golden. Oh, and an all-wheel or 4-wheel drive vehicle. The road in and out is bump and windy, so go slow and if you have motion sickness, where the wristbands or something.

We did not see the appeal of this place.
out de 2020 • Casais
We have enjoyed every aspect of West Virginia in it's fall glory. But Dolly Sods in our opinion was horrible. The drive up was dangerous and difficult and the scenery at the top was uninspiring to us at best. We will never do that again!

The long drive up the forest roads is well worth it when arriving at Bear Rocks. Excellent hiking in an unspoiled location.

Winding roads to an accessible part of Monongahela National Forest.
set de 2020
We drove 30 miles through and beside this upland plateau called DSW, impressed with the long wooded vistas and limestone outcrops. This was my focus having climbed Seneca Rocks to its now fallen "Gunsight" with my brother in 1982. Much of the road signage was tailored to hunter access as the season is from September to March, so no trails for us.
The scenery was excellent with sunny weather and the leaves just hinting "Fall"
