The Unique Hike In West Virginia That Leads You To Plane Wreckage From 1973
You never know what surprises you’ll find hiding on the trail in the Mountain State – and one of the last things you’d likely expect to find hidden on a trail near Spruce Knob is the wreckage of a small plane that crashed in the middle of the night back in October of 1973. But it’s there, and largely intact considering it has been there for the better part of half a century.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
