“Lux!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We only went through this forest, but it is worth to stop. Big old trees, little creeks and falls near the road. And it is for free - just stop for awhile and enjoy.

“This place is BEAUTIFUL!! Surprised more people don't come here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We go camping here a couple of times every year - about a 4-5 hour trip from our home in Southern Maryland. It's breathtaking and very relaxing and it's free!! We are always surprised that not many people take advantage of our National Forests. Hey, you pay taxes on just about everything these days - why not get something back for your buck? Plenty of shady spots close to streams. Plenty of hiking and Harrisonburg, Va & Franklin, W. VA are not that far away if you want movies or restaurants. GREAT FREE VACATION SPOT!!!

“Fantastic trails. Even better rock scramble!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This very large national forest is beautiful! Many trails to choose from ( including one for ATV's) We had a great hike on the Duncan's Knob Trail. At the top is a very large rock scramble that the kids really enjoyed. View at the top was gorgeous and there was lots of room up there to rest and explore before heading back down. Be careful to mind where you started the scramble, it can be a little tricky getting back on the trail when you are ready to head home. To the top of this trail and back (allowing for rest/getting a *little* lost) took four hours in all.

Great way to spend a Saturday.

One last tip, horses use these trails too, so watch your step!
