The Wildlife Trail (TR-560) at Dolly Sods Wilderness in West Virginia is an easy 3 mile out-and-back hike that connects FR-75 to the Rohrbaugh Plains Trail (TR-508). You can use this trail to reach Red Creek via Rohrbaugh Plains as well.
Just after the trailhead, you'll find a fork in the trail - stay right to keep on the Wildlife Trail; otherwise, you'll end up hiking through a field and into a dead end.
Further into the hike you'll pass another field, about 1 mile in, before the trail ends at the Rorhbaugh Plains Trail. You'll pass a few creeks that cross the trail and along the way as well, so you can filter this water if necessary.
Wildflowers can be found in the late Spring and throughout the Summer. Foliage during autumn is nice too, but there are no blueberry bushes along this trail like in the northern part of the Sods.
Muddy: This trail is abnormally muddy after a it rains. If it's been raining all week, plan for a messy muddy hike almost the entire distance.
Camping: While there is nowhere to camp along this trail, the trail does lead into more primitive backpacking sites within Dolly Sods.
