The film received mostly mixed-to-positive reviews from critics, who praised its production values, performances, and considered it an improvement over the original franchise, but some criticized its screenplay, narrative, and underdeveloped characters.

Scott Shaw travels to a small town in rural Virginia to search for his daughter, who has been missing for several weeks after visiting the area with her friends. The local police chief does not want to get involved, and Scott gets little help from the locals. In a bar, he meets a man called Nate, who tells Scott that if the group got lost in the woods they’re probably dead. But Scott finally gets help from the owner of the motel, where his daughter and her friends had been staying.

Flashback to six weeks earlier: Jen Shaw, her boyfriend Darius, and couples Adam and Milla, and Gary and Luis, arrive in town with the intention of hiking the Appalachian Trail. That evening they encounter some veiled hostility in the local bar, especially from the surly Nate, who sneers at them as “hippy shit”. The next morning Jen briefly meets a strange woman called Edith, who is selling handmade jewellery; with her is a young mute girl, Ruthie.

The friends set off on their hike, but although they have been warned not to leave the trail, Darius persuades them to venture off it, in order to find an old fort. As they progress through the woods, a huge tree trunk comes crashing down the hill towards them. Everyone manages to get out of the way in time, except Gary who is crushed to death.

Bruised, cut and disoriented, the group tries to hike back to town, but they get lost. Night falls and it starts to rain, so they set up camp for the night. The following day, they discover that they have inadvertently camped in a graveyard, and that Milla is missing, as well as their cellphones. While searching for her, they find a plaque dated 1859 commemorating the creation of a group of settlers in the mountains called the "Foundation", who believed the end of the United States was near.

While looking for Milla, Adam is caught in a trap and dragged into a pit. Jen, Darius and Luis resolve to get back to town and get help. They eventually come across a barn full of backpacks and clothing, and then see Adam trussed to a pole, carried between two men clad in strange costumes and wearing animal skull masks. The friends arm themselves with whatever they can find and rush to confront the men, who talk in a language they can’t understand. While the men are distracted, Adam manages to break free and manically beats one of them to death, while the other escapes.
