Dolly Sods Scenic Lookout

0.2 Miles Easy

Monongahela National Forest
Dolly Sods Wilderness, West Virginia

1

This short lookout trail at the Dolly Sods Scenic Area is an easy 0.2 mile out-and-back walk to a quiet lookout point along FR-75, south of the Red Creek Campground.

The trail leads out to the edge of the Allegheny Plateau, called the Allegheny Front. The Allegheny Front is a ridge that stretches from New York to Tennessee, which influences water flow and climate.

From the end of the trail you'll find a lookout point where the trail ends with views of North Fork Mountain straight ahead. You can continue on the boulders to get a better view.

While this trail and lookout is not as popular as the Bear Rocks Preservation Trail, there tend to be a lot less people.

Parking: Parking can be found along FR-75 south of the Red Creek Campground and north of FR-19. Look for a brown sign with a lookout symbol.

Warning: Dolly Sods was used for military bombing training during WWII and there are still unexploded ordinances in the ground out in the wilderness. Most of these trails and the areas around them have been combed and searched, but not everything has been found. If you find any strange metal objects, especially bomb-shaped, do not tamper with them. Make a note of where you found it and alert the proper authorities. More information can be found at the wilderness trailheads.
