This hike is for the hiker looking for scenic views and good exercise wrapped into one. The circuit trail is 9 miles in length and can be very strenuous at times. However, this trail is rewarding as it travels through a variety of environments ranging from deep quiet woodlands to mountaintop open views. Locust Gap Trail connects Blue Suck Falls and Stony Run Trail with a gradual descent of 1,900 feet. Tobacco House Ridge Trail spurs from Blue Suck to take the hiker back to the parking area. Many of Douthat's trails are interconnected and it is highly recommended that the hiker obtain a map from the park office.
