What is it about the Doll Sods trails that draws you back? I've never hiked them, and only have seen signs in Canaan Valley pointing out the way or road to them. What are they?

Dolly Sods is a very unusual high elevation wilderness area. Unique topography (much of it is over 4K feet above sea level) with lots of interesting vegetation and wildlife.

It's some of my favorite hiking in WV.
