Tag

Across from the campground at Wolf Gap is a hiking trail ( Tibbet Knob). Turn south across from the campground entrance and head up the hiking trail (knobbies suggested ). Tag photo is looking NORTH





See that stump on the other side of the fire ring?







Ride safely gentlemen...

Nice spot. Too bad I don't have any knobbies, unless I trailer my son's XR100 to the trail.

Nah, I'll just sit this one out.

Trail

It's not a paved road...it's the start of a trailhead. Steep and rocky at first....but the distance to the tag from the road is short as you can see in the photo...the road is visible behind the bike and table...

tag:

like i said, i headed west on 675 to get back home to Strasburg. this took me through wardensville on rt 55. Blue duck said he wanted to be near water. I told him i knew of a perfect pond to place him at. One about 15 minutes from my town, and on a road that is my favorite. This road is the long way to get my banana milk shake at sonic on rt 50. the WARDEN wouldn't appreciate the MANOR in which i ride this PIKE.

the duck is at the base of the closest tree to the intersection just behind the windshield of my Wee.

look for a rock that looks out of place.

let me know if you need anymore clues. VERY streetbike friendly. ;)
