Appalachian Trail: VA 623 to I-77

This relocated section avoids frequent stream crossings along Little Wolf Creek. Instead, you’ll cruise an old road and railroad grade, then contour the slopes of Brushy Mountain (covered in seasonal mountain laurel blooms).


To Trailhead

Start: From Sharon Springs, VA, head NW on VA 623 for 7.3 miles to trail crossing. End: From Bastian, VA, head southeast on N. Scenic Hwy./US 52. In roughly 1.5 miles, turn left onto VA 612. Go .3 mile to parking.
