Description

Beginning from a small turnout off of Coopers Rock Road, just past the McCollum campground, the trail proceeds gently downhill on a very rocky dirt road south, parallel to a powerline cut. Near the end, the trail briefly climbs somewhat steeply to the Raven Rock overlook of the Cheat River gorge.
