Planning a couple of nights in the Dolly Sods area in WV late August. The better half and I will be moving a kid into college in PA, and I thought a couple of nights out after that would help distract from the empty nest emotions. She hasn't backpacked in a while so we plan to take it easy.
Thinking of starting at the Bear Rocks TH and going counterclockwise via that trail, Raven Ridge, Rocky Ridge, and Big Stonecoal then finishing up along Red Creek and Upper Red Creek trails back to the car (skipped several trail names but you get the idea). A decent length day sandwiched in between two shorter days as we will arrive just after lunch, and hopefully just a 2 to 3 hr hike out so we can do the 7 hr drive home the third day.
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. What is the weather like there in late August?
