“A full loop hitting most of the Valley Falls trails.”— S. Tobesman
At the top of Rhododendron Trail, turn left onto Scott's Loop and follow this mostly flat trail back to where you started. Turn left on the Dogwood Connector Trail and then left again on Wild Turkey Trail to climb to the very top of the park.
Nowhere to go but down now. Follow Wild Turkey Trail down to Red Fox Trail. After descending Red Fox Trail's steep switchbacks, turn right onto Deer Trail.
Head through several ravines and across one bridge on Deer Trail. Just after the second wooden bridge on Deer Trail turn left up the S-turn climb to enter the trail. The trail is somewhat technical with plenty of rocks, log piles, ravine crossings and a "West Virginia climbing turn." The trail mostly parallels the gravel section of Deer Trail and terminates at the end of Deer Trail just before the main road.
Turn right on Valley Falls Road and climb back up to Dogwood Trail. Descend Dogwood to the Dogwood Connector Trail and eventually Rocky Trail - East. This fast, rocky downhill run will bring you back to the parking area and conclude this ride.
