One of my favorite hikes in West Virginia, the whole ridge is full of views. Backpacking the north fork mountain trail is about 24.7 miles challenging hike but with relentless views the best West Virginia has to offer. Summertime backpacking the whole the NFMT is hard, no water on the trail so either you spot water ahead of time or you have to carry extra water with you. If your not into backpacking and looking for a day hike with spectacular views I highly recommend hiking to Chimney Top, out and back is a 6 mile hike a bit challenging and tough climb but well worth it. I highly recommend try hiking to Chimney Top in October when all the leaves are changing, the views are absolutely gorgeous.
