Take An Easy Loop Trail To Enter Another World At Gaudineer Knob In West Virginia

There are only a handful of virgin forests left in West Virginia, and most of them are in the Monongahela National Forest. One of them is on Shavers Mountain, in Randolph and Pocahontas Counties, near the town of Durbin, and you can walk through it on an easy loop trail that also takes you past an incredible overlook from Gaudineer Knob.

For more information, a map, and directions, visit the Guadineer Knob website courtesy of the U.S. Forest Service. The scenic area is open year-round, but be aware that Forest Service Road 27 isn’t always cleared immediately during the winter months.
