Bear Rocks Trail

4.8 Miles Easy

Monongahela National Forest
Davis, West Virginia


The Bear Rocks Trail in Dolly Sods Wilderness, WV, is an easy 2.2 mile out-and-back hike to the intersection of TR-526 (Dobbin Grade Trail) or an easy 4.8 mile out-and-back hike to the intersection of TR-521 (Raven Ridge Trail) further west into Dolly Sods.

Along the way you'll find blueberry bushes and excellent scenery of the sods. You'll cross Red Creek, which lies just beyond the intersection of the Dobbin Grade Trail with a few primitive campsites nearby. If you plan to backpack further into the sods, make sure you fill up plenty of water from Red Creek as this is one of the last water sources available heading west.

Once leaving Red Creek, you'll hike up a hill and at the top you get stunning views of Dolly Sods. Hike another 0.8 miles to the intersection of the Raven Ridge Trail (TR-521).
