is a federally designated wilderness area, the Dolly Sods Wilderness, is a highly elevated plain of windswept moors on the Allegheny Plateau. It is known for its upland bogs and sweeping vista. Dolly Sods is the home to the one-sided Spruce trees and vegetation only found in Canada.
A favorite and one of the easiest hikes is at Bear Rocks. At Bear Rocks overlook you can stand on a limestone outcrop overlooking New Creek Mountain, the North Fork Mountain Range and the vast North Fork River Valley.
A scenic overlook and the Northland Loop interpretive trail permit access to the scenic area without wilderness skills. A map of trails is a must for any backcountry hiking on Dolly Sods. A map can be picked up at the South Side Depot- Petersburg, or the Ranger Station just outside of Petersburg.
