This part of the Otter Creek Trail at the Otter Creek Wilderness in Hendricks, West Virginia is an easy 8.8 mile out-and-back hike. Please note that the entire trail is 11.8 mile one-way so in order to do the entire trail out-and-back, you're looking at 23.6 miles unless you have two cars.

The trail is very flat with a minimal grade throughout the 4.5 one-way hike and the way back is all downhill. A few parts of the trail get narrow, so watch your step.

When you first start the trail, about 0.2 miles in is a suspension bridge that leads you across a large creek. After crossing the bridge, head right until your first left turn - marked as 'Otter Creek Trail'.

GPS map/data: The trail, displayed here, turns around at the junction with TR130 (Green Mountain Trail) after 4.4 miles one-way. For further details, check out the Otter Creek Wilderness trail map.

Waterfalls: Added waterfalls since we saw some small waterfalls along the trail and within the creek. No large waterfalls though.

Campsites: There are a plenty campsites found along the creek tucked away and out of view. We noted them at miles: 0.8, 2.9, 3.4, and 4.3.
