Description

The Bear Rocks Trail is an easy to intermediate run with some rocky sections along the trail and potentially wet areas during heavy periods of rain.

Bear Rocks Trail intersects with the Dobbin Grade Trail and Raven Ridge Trail for an extended run. Dobbin Grade Trail can be VERY wet and muddy in the bog area - so be aware and prepared!

Dolly Sods looks a lot more like Canada than the Appalachian Mountains of the Northeast US.

It's a great start to the hike, with open views of the high altitude plateau within Monongahela National Forest.
