Then, we always take one morning to do this hike. It's the back side of Tibet Knob in the George Washington National Forest.
To get to the backside of this trail from Woodstock, VA...Head West on Rt. 42 (Away from town). Make your first right onto Wolf Gap Rd. Stay on Wolf Gap until you get to Liberty Furnace (a huge old iron furnace with a working water wheel). Turn right onto Sam Clark Road. Then take a left on Judge Rye Road. Follow the road to the top and you'll see the trail head on the right. The blazes are yellow. Judge Rye is a windy, dirt road. Be sure to drive slow.
This is a great hike for kids! There are tons of rocks to climb and explore, and it's an easy hike. There are also great views at the end.
This time Farmer Dan, The Ball Boss (and his family) and Reading Girl's best friend - Crafty Girl - came with us.
