MITTELSCHWER 88 Bewertungen

Tibbet Knob Trail from Wolf Gap Campground ist ein 3.1 Meilen langer, stark besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Lost City, West Virginia. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und gezeltet werden. Die Route ist am besten von März bis Oktober zugänglich. Hunde sind erlaubt, müssen allerdings an der Leine gehalten werden.

60* and sunny in January. Couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out a new trail. Took my 12 y/o Westie (who's never been hiking) and she slowed me down a bit sniffing every darn tree. But otherwise it was a smooth pace to the top and back. Trail was well marked with double yellow dashes the entire way, conditions were dry and the trail maintenance is top notch. Wolf Gap Recreation area had plenty of parking (again - this is January). Parking is across the street from the trail. The recreation area has public restrooms. It was not until the very end that I saw 2 other hikers. Otherwise, we were totally alone on the trail. So "heavily trafficked" is dependent upon the season. AllTrails has this listed as a 3.1 mile ~900ft gain out-n-back. **NOTE** That distance is only to the area labeled "VIEW" on the GWNF map seen at the trailhead. The trail actually continues for another mile! Now, that extra mile is super easy, flat soft mossy and goes steady along the ridge. Plenty of great camping spots in that mile with stone fire pits already constructed. So, if you begin at the Wolf Gap Recreation Area and follow Tibbet Knob Trail until it stops at Judge Rye Road, the distance is 2.5 miles and elevation gain of 1,300ft. Out-n-back was 5 miles. We did the whole thing and it took us 3 hours with regular water breaks. The scramble was (in my opinion) not a big challenge. I had to carry the dog through it though. She's agile but just too small and tired to leap like that. Don't let the "scramble" dissuade you from this trail. It's a great beginners scramble experience because you're not near an edge or clif, there wasn't much loose rock (January), and it's short - like .2 miles. Overall the views were nice and many to choose from, but more breathtaking views exist on trails nearby. This is a trail I'd choose for an easy/moderate physicality. It will be a little challenge for some beginners, and easy for the physically active. I wouldn't do it in the hot summer months because it seems it would be crowded, and there's not a lot of true shade for most of the hike. With that many prime camping spots I may just come back to spend the night!

This trail wore me out with the constant climb up to the knob. It was also a really hot September day. I would have enjoyed it more during cooler weather as the sauna like heat/ humidity and constant bugs weren't very pleasant. Great trail and it will help me get in shape but I usually do less challenging trails

Beautiful views, however buggy during the hike and at the top - wear big spray. Make sure to wear very sturdy hiking boots as almost the entire trail has rocks/loose rocks that will hurt the bottom of your feet. You’ll need the extra grip as well. The hike is steep up and steep down as you get closer to the top. 3 different rock scrambles as you near the top as well.

Excellent short trail! Went with our agile dog (Aussie) and 2 kids 7&9 yo. It’s a bit of a scramble near the top and definitely had to rig a pseudo-harness when we descended, for extra safety. Beautiful views.

This hike was pretty secluded and has beautiful views. Very lightly travelled today. Having two summits was pretty cool too. Be ready to scramble at the top!

Reviews are spot on: Great hike and pay off views. Quiet trials and steep at the end. Longer than mileage indicates; 9 hikers head to Big Schloss for every1 heading to the Knob from Wolf Gap. Excellent WV views West and North. Large Timber Rattler at Summit point #2.

This was a nice, short hike with a challenge in the half mile before the peak. The last stint is steep and rocky, requiring a bit of scrambling. Overall, a lot of fun and I’d definitely do it again.

Great trail with rewarding views. The climb is very steep so bring more water than you think you need.

The views were amazing but the upward slope is no joke in the second half of the hike. We did it with three kids but we had to take a couple breaks along the way. I would recommend snacks and plenty of water for the journey.

Beautiful trail and forest setting - well maintained, pretty rocky in parts. Fun little scrambles towards the top. Views are nice for the east coast US.

The hike itself is great and challenging when it came to the rocks, not difficult just made it more fun. At the end is great spot for camping with a fire pit and plenty of space for multiple tents. The views are plenty and absolutely breathtaking.

Fun, short trail with excellent views at the end. there was light snow on the trail which made the 2 steep sections a bit dangerous. Completed it with my 4 year old daughter who had a blast. I helped her down the 2 steep sections, but she was able to go up them without assistance.

Great hike and definitely worth it for the quiet overlook. The elevation difference is no joke and we had to stop a few times because I couldn’t catch my breath. I loved how quiet it was, we saw nobody while we were there except some campers at the bottom of the trail. Make sure you have bug spray and good shoes for the rock scramble

Good hike, all up hill then right back down. Several small, steep rock scrambles add some variety to the trail and a good view from the overlook (where you get a nice view of nearby Big Schloss).

I thought this was a great hike. I have to admit, I like Big Schloss more. This trail was moderately difficult. I think it rained a bit overnight. The rocks were very slippery going up and especially coming back down. The view was beautiful at the top. On a Sunday morning, I didn't see a single soul on the trail going up until I got to the overlook. Continued on past the overlook and didn't see anyone else either until I looped back around. Good hiking shoes and plenty of water is recommended. I can't wait to come back and camp at one of the primitive sites along the way!

Awesome hike. We did Big Schloss first, walked back to the car and refilled water, then camped at Tibbett Knob. Don't let the short mileage fool you, you will feel the elevation gain on this one. The scrambling at the end is pretty minor. It's got a few awesome backcountry campsites and tons of side trails leading to private viewpoints of the overlook. The overlook is an excellent place for star gazing and photography! Bring your own water.
