Trail Notes

The Bear Rocks Preservation Trail at Dolly Sods Wilderness, WV, is an easy 0.5 mile out-and-back hike up to a scenic overlook with views of West Virginian mountains & even Shenandoah National Park on a good day.

This short and windy trail leads from the Dolly Sods parking lot up to the Bear Rocks Preservation.

On a clear day you can see Shenandoah National Park's Hawksbill Mountain and Stony Man, the highest peaks in the park.

The trail itself is not very flat and it winds through blueberry bushes over jagged rocks. Be careful of your foot placement, because it's easy to trip on this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
