Possession Camp Trail Description

The Monongahela National Forest’s Otter Creek Wilderness has many trails, mostly for hiking through the scenic landscape of rhododendron, timber and mosses. Biking is prohibited on the trails, but horses are allowed in some areas.

The Possession Camp Trail extends northeast from a junction with the Otter Creek Trail—the spine of the trail system in the Otter Creek Wilderness—and the Moore Run Trail. In the north, the trail ends at the scenic Green Mountain Trail. So although the trail itself is roughly 3 miles long, there is some considerable hiking to get to the start of the trail. The trail can best be accessed by hiking in from the Moore Run Trailhead or either of the trailheads for the Otter Creek Trail.

Like all of the trails in the Otter Creek Wilderness, attention has been given to keeping the Possession Camp Trail very primitive. There are no signs or blazes. However, confusing sections are marked with stone cairns. This rail-trail is not for the faint of heart, but it is worth the hike if you are up for a challenge.

Parking and Trail Access

To reach the Otter Creek Trail’s Condon Run Trailhead, take Stuart Memorial Drive/FR 91 1.4 miles north of US 33/State Route 55; go right at the fork (FR 303). Trailhead parking is 0.6 mile away. The Otter Creek Trail's Dry Fork Trailhead is off Dry Fork Road/SR 72 southeast of Parsons.

To reach the Moore Run Trailhead, take County Road 219 south from Parsons, and stay left at the fork to continue on Brooklyn Heights Road. Turn right on Forest Road 701 and then continue on FR 324, heading south. The trailhead, though hard to spot, is on the left.
