Valley View Trail

Lookout/Views

Dogs (leashed)

The Valley View Trail in Davis, West Virginia is an easy 0.5 mile one-way trail that leads along the western edge of the Dolly Sods Wilderness with views of Canaan Valley and the surrounding mountain ranges.

Once on the ridge, this trail is an easy walk with amazing views throughout the entirety of the hike. To the north, there's a lookout point called Windy View, which sits atop a rock that juts out from the ridge. Benches can be found along this trail as well so you can sit down and take in the views.

Backpacking Dolly Sods: If you're passing through Dolly Sods along the Rocky Ridge Trail, you should plan to hike the Valley View Trail at least one-way since the view is much better than the view you get from the Rocky Ridge Trail.

Parking: I technically parked miles away from this trail and stumbled upon it while hiking the Rocky Ridge Trail in Dolly Sods; however, I noticed plenty of people hiking up the trail located at the coordinates provided below for parking, so there's likely a lot there.

Trailheads: Please note that there are technically 3 trailheads for the Valley View Trail - the trailhead listed here can be found at the southern terminus for this trail along the Rocky Ridge Trail. The main trailhead can be found up the short spur trail from the main parking area, and the third trailhead can be found at the northern section of this GPS data, along the Rocky Ridge Trail. If you're hiking along the Rocky Ridge Trail, you can spot the northern terminus easily by finding the multitude of large stone cairns.
