This 6.0 mile trip is suitable for beginners and above.

Join us for an exhilarating journey through the untamed beauty of Rohrbaugh Plains, nestled within the breathtaking Dolly Sods Wilderness of West Virginia. Get ready for an unforgettable backpacking experience that will leave you awestruck. What makes this trip stand out is the incredible reward it offers with minimal effort. Just a 3-mile hike from the trailhead, and you will find yourself on the edge of the majestic Rohrbaugh Cliffs, treated to a mesmerizing 270-degree panorama of the stunning Red Creek Valley below. As dusk falls, we will head to the nearby campsite, eagerly awaiting a magnificent sunset that will be the highlight of our evening. Do not let the seemingly flat terrain deceive you; this adventure is perfect for both novice and experienced backpackers. Embark on this trail through the Monongahela National Forest and let yourself be enchanted by its unique wonders.

All trip details including equipment list, meeting location, and driving directions will be provided by email the week before the trip. WWO has a limited amount of backpacking equipment to lend as a member benefit. Let the trip leader know if you need to borrow any equipment.
