One of our longer hiking trails that visits the park’s backcountry. Two suspension bridges are found on this 8.3-mile trail. Johnson Home place is a backcountry campsite that requires a permit. A short portion of this trail is within Tygart State Forest and allows equestrian and mountain bike use. Avoid this section of the trail or wear blaze orange during designated hunting seasons. Orange blazes mark the trail.
