0.5 Miles Easy
The Bear Rocks Preservation Trail at Dolly Sods Wilderness, WV, is an easy 0.5 mile out-and-back hike up to a scenic overlook with views of West Virginian mountains & even Shenandoah National Park on a good day.
This short and windy trail leads from the Dolly Sods parking lot up to the Bear Rocks Preservation.
On a clear day you can see Shenandoah National Park's Hawksbill Mountain and Stony Man, the highest peaks in the park.
The trail itself is not very flat and it winds through blueberry bushes over jagged rocks. Be careful of your foot placement, because it's easy to trip on this trail.
