Trail Overview

This route travels from just outside Thomas, WV connecting back to WV 48. The route is not well maintained and has varying terrain. Mud and natural rock make up the base with some small washes and ledges throughout. Several small stream crossings with flow dependent on recent weather. Multiple scenic views of the canyon along the route with a nice viewpoint as listed on the map on a rock outcropping. Dispersed camping sites can be found along the route. The Olson Fire tower offers 360 degree views of the surrounding area.
