Welcome to Wardensville, WV -a quick weekend getaway from Morgantown.
My husband and I planned a late fall hike on the border of WV and VA. It’s getting warm enough to begin planning hiking trips for this spring and summer!
In a town of a few hundred people we were pleasantly surprised to find the elegant atmosphere of a thriving brewery and restaurant – Lost River Brewing. What we’ve discovered since then is a group in the northeastern U.S. that call themselves the Views and Brews Club. Members pair a hike with a local brewery and call it a day. Well, that’s what my husband and I have been doing for years. We were excited to find out that this hike has not been added to their list yet.
~ The Hike ~
In the south central edge of West Virginia’s eastern panhandle where Virginia meets it’s border, the Wolf Gap Recreation area offers a point from which to begin hiking the Great North Mountain Trails. One hike comprised of out-and-back hikes comprised our 7.6 mile day. A climb to the Big Schloss view (meaning ‘castle’ in German) is to the north, while the Tibbet knob trail southward leads you along the same ridge line to a view 1.6 miles away. -P & K
